    Just a caution – I’d check these methods with a dentist before trying them. Both hydrogen peroxide and lemon juice can corrode tooth enamel and possibly leach mercury from metal fillings.

      Wise words, Selah! Thanks for sharing them.

    Thanks for the links!!! I’m in the same boat with you – I can’t bear to spend that much for the hubs and I for white strips. So expensive!

    Love this outfit, too. :)

    I hate the white strips. They kill my teeth. I’ve often wondered about the Pinterest methods.

    Cute outfit. Love your pics.

      Mine, too. I had to use them sparingly. Thanks so much! Hope you’re having a great week.
