I just tried adding peppermint oil and baking soda to a q-tip and scrubbed my teeth and the stains disappeared instantly. I couldn't believe it. I'm blown away. I will be brushing my teeth with baking soda and peppermint oil from now on. Best tooth whitening remedy ever!
Thank you!!! I've been wanting to clean my stain that I thought wouldn't come off my front teeth and this worked amazingly!!!
So happy this worked!! I have some ridges in my 2 front teeth where I get coffee/tea stains that are very hard to remove. I followed what one reader said: put 4 drops of peppermint essential oil and add some baking soda to a cotton pad. I then scrubbed my 2 front teeth for 1-2 mins. It got most of it off, but not all. Then I added 4 drops of the peppermint oil to a q-tip and added some baking soda as well. I scrubbed on the area for another 1-2min. It worked! Stains came off and my teeth look amazing. So thrilled!! Note that you do need to scrub for a bit....it doesnt just come off once it comes in contact with the oil/baking soda mixture.I am not sure how safe this is for the enamel of the teeth, so I wouldn't do it too often. Saved me another trip to the dentist (will use this in between deep cleanings! ).
Ok - I have been trying to remove some dark stains on the top of my bottom 2 teeth for about 3 mos. I tried over the counter gels, mouth rinses, etc. I have a $100 cyber sonic toothbrush and use a special whitening gel and still those stains were there. I don't smoke but I do drink tea. Well I didn't have any oil of peppermint but I tried the baking soda on a moistened Q-tip and it worked! I can't believe that .59 cent box of baking soda worked while I have been trying all these expensive products. On top of that I am struggling with thyroid issues and I don't want to go to the dentist as they won't clean my teeth without xrays, which I can't get due to my thyriod enlargement. So I am sooo happy this worked as my teeth are perfect and those stains are gone!!
Thank you Kelly so much for this tip. I have tried so many ways to remove stains on my front teeth. Peppermint oil and baking soda is the only thing that has worked for me - it's amazing , not only does it work but the results are instant. So bless you for sharing this.
Totally worked after just a minute of trying this. a couple of drops of peppermint oil on a cotton swab, a sprinkle of baking soda, and a minute of scrubbing my two front teeth and the stains were gone!! I had been so worried about these stains that seemed to suddenly come on in the last couple of days, that I started researching professional teeth whitening solutions... But I'm good now! Thank you Kelly!!
I also have been at a loss in removing tea stains. I even limited my tea drinking. I had two ugly brown stains on front teeth.
After using 4 drops of peppermint essential oil and baking soda, stains were gone in 2 minutes.
Thank you, Kelly, for your suggestion. To my teeth, Kelly, you are a hero!
I tried peppermint essential oils on a cotton ball with baking soda. The brown stains rubbed off in 5 minutes! It was amazing! I've been using a great natural whitening toothpaste, but it made the brown spots stand out because the rest of my teeth are so white! This is a great tip! I think the quality of the peppermint essential oil makes a difference though.
Thank you Kelly from Middleton, WI. I too had grey stains on my top teeth but I think mine were from taking blackstrap molasses every day. I tried hydrogen peroxide, brushing with baking soda and brushing with coconut oil but that didn't do anything. After reading your post, I got a cotton ball, put a few drops of water on it so the baking soda would stay on, then put a little bit of baking soda and then 4 drops of peppermint essential oil. I rubbed it on my teeth for only about a minute and the stains came right off. I am so happy. Thank you once again.
I am a woman in my early thirties, and I had noticeable brown / gray stains on my top front teeth because I drink coffee and tea every day. I read about this treatment and tried it: I put 4 drops of peppermint essential oil, plus a sprinkle of baking soda, on a cotton swab and rubbed it on the teeth's stains. I rubbed for about 5 minutes and the stains were GONE! I could actually see some brown (from the stains) on the cotton swab! Then I rinsed a few times with water.
Make sure to avoid rubbing the gums with baking soda. Also, I wouldn't do this too often, maybe once a week, as baking soda is quite abrasive and also changes the ph of your saliva, making your gums sensitive.
I have never posted anything online before, but I just had to share this teeth-stain-removing method and the WONDERFUL results I got with it!
