Using a spoon, crush the strawberry to a pulp and mix the strawberry pulp with baking soda. Then, apply the mixture onto your teeth using a soft toothbrush spreading it evenly over all your teeth. Leave the mixture on for 5-10 minutes before brushing thoroughly with normal toothpaste to help clean of the strawberry pulp mixture. Strawberries contain natural sugar, so you’ll have to brush.
