If you want whiter teeth, you are not alone. Many people share this particular desire. After all, those pearly whites can be useful. They can blind people with their brilliance and distract the world from the fact that all you ever wear is a banana costume.
As surprising as it may seem, banana peels have actually been shown to be useful for teeth whitening purposes. You can try this, along with a few supplementary actions that could make the process even more effective.
Get A Pet Monkey
If you don’t already have one, you should remedy the situation immediately. Monkeys are cool. Not to mention, who knows more about bananas than they do? Just observe how your monkey handles bananas and then incorporate those same tactics into your teeth whitening process. If you see him fling a banana peel across the room, you do the same. Maybe the air will absorb the minerals of the peel, and your teeth will get whiter just by walking around in that enhanced air.
Use The Whole Banana
Why stop at just the peel? Waste not, want not! The potassium in the peel is what really brightens your teeth, and the banana itself has that too. You’re being incredibly wasteful if you don’t take advantage of this. So mash up that banana and rub it all over your teeth as well. But don’t eat it! This distracts the banana from focusing on whitening your teeth. You want to keep that banana on task.
Create A Visualization-Friendly Environment
Visualization is a powerful thing. It works for athletes. They visualize themselves winning races, and this actually makes it more likely to happen. Considering that the banana peel is so good for your teeth, isn’t it entirely possible that thinking about bananas more often will have a positive effect on your teeth? And what better way to prompt thoughts about bananas than having a big poster of one on your bathroom wall?
In fact, why not go all out? Create a banana motif in your bathroom. Banana-patterned wallpaper, banana-shaped bathtub, banana-shaped toilet and so on. You can even strew bananas all over the bathroom floor if you think it would help.
Make A New Toothbrush
The toothbrush that you currently have is probably made of plastic and nylon. Have you ever heard of these things being used to whiten teeth? Nope. Since banana peels work and those things don’t, why not make your whitening routine more effective by ditching that toothbrush and making a new one out of a banana peel? It’ll give you a chance to indulge your artsy side, too. Use an unripened greenish peel to make a firm handle and a ripe peel to make the head and surface that you’ll use in place of conventional toothbrush bristles. You may have to replace it every day or two, but hey, do you want whiter teeth or not?
Leave The Peel On All Day
If rubbing a banana peel on your teeth twice a day before brushing your teeth whitens your teeth, imagine how white they can be if they’re in contact with the peel all day! They’ll be so bright that they’ll be visible from other galaxies! Simply cut a piece of banana peel that is the right size to be able to cover all of your teeth and fit in your mouth, place it over your teeth, and go on with your day.
Of course, as ivory as your teeth will be, no one is going to see them because of the obscuring banana peel, but who cares? As long as you know you have whiter teeth, that’s what’s important.
