    There are several alternatives to chlorine bleach. Oxygen bleach such as Sun Oxygen Cleaner are a non-toxic alternative. Hydrogen peroxide, lemon juice and sunshine can also lighten stains and disinfect in a more natural way to clean as well as to prevent the ill effects of chlorine bleach both for people and for the environment.

    Strawberries contain Malic Acid, which is a natural teeth whitener. To create your own toothpaste simply: crush a single ripe strawberry into mush, add 1/2 tsp. of baking soda, mix until well blended, apply the mixture on your teeth and let it stand for 5 minutes, finally brush your teeth with a store-brand toothpaste and rinse. This should not be applied more than once a week. Another sweet teeth whitener is orange peels.

    Another whitening wash can be made with a 3-to-1 ratio of lemon to salt (3 tbsp. of lemon juice to 1 tbsp. of salt). For about a minute swish it in your mouth, then brush as you normal.

    Chewing apples mimics the bristling action of a toothbrush, removing excess food and bacteria that cause plaque, while also getting rid of stains. And eating raisins induces saliva production, which in turn rinses away plaque.
