Update: Whitening teeth with activated charcoal

Standard

Hey y’all! I’m not even going to apologize for being a slack blogger again…what can I say, LIFE happens! Anywho, I wanted to share an update of sorts. Months ago I wrote about whitening teeth with activated charcoal. I’m excited to share that I’ve mastered not making a huge mess! The secret? Dip wet toothbrush in charcoal and then squeeze a dab of toothpaste on the brush. That’s it! 

And also, just be mindful of how you brush, and no more messes! The mess is actually what kept me from using it more often! 
As a reminder, here’s what I use and it was purchased on Amazon. 

While my teeth aren’t super duper white, I’m happy with the results. 

I brush with the charcoal a couple times a week. I also notice how more clean my teeth feel after brushing with the charcoal. I’ve never asked my dentist if this is safe or not, so don’t come for me. I’d suggest asking a dental professional about this if you’re concerned. 

Have you guys tried this yet? And, any other whitening tips that you’ve come across?
