A CLEANING hack expert has come up with a genius way to whiten your teeth – and dentists agree that it works.
Tiktok user Armen Adamjan, who goes by the username @creative_explained, shared a cheap, non-toxic method to brighten your teeth.

He simply mashes up kiwi, baking soda, and cucumber and brushes his teeth with the mixture a couple of times a week.
If you keep this up, you should see a whitening effect.
“Kiwis are packed with calcium and cucumbers get rid of any bad bacteria, which in turn gives you whiter teeth”, he said.
This DIY tooth whitening hack is pretty special, because dentists actually agree it works.
Dentist Dr. Joseph Field, DDS said this hack really does work.
Your teeth may not be totally transformed, but there should be a visible difference.
“The kiwi, cucumber, and baking soda combo does a good job removing the stains from your teeth, giving them a whiter appearance,” Field told Bustle.
This is because the mildly abrasive baking soda combines with the fruit acids in kiwi and cucumber and they work together to help remove surface stains.
“With our diets and consumption of wines, coffee, and juices, our teeth can discolor quickly,” the dentist said.
The dentist said the hack is both safe and effective, but shouldn’t be used every single day.
“You need to be careful not to use it too often as it can cause [your tooth] enamel to erode,” he warned.
He added: “Apply it once a day for up to 10 consecutive days. After that, use it one to two days every month for maintenance.”
The internet is full of dodgy teeth whitening hacks, which is why Dr Field’s endorsement of Armen’s hack is so important.
You certainly wouldn’t like to end up like Clare from Bristol, who got a bargain on whitening her teeth, but wound up with swollen lips and blisters on the inside of her mouth.
For more beauty hacks, you’ve been doing your makeup all wrong… and this is why it’s not lasting all day.
