Best Way to Eliminate Plaque

Sometimes Flossing is Not Enough

3 colorful toothbrushes

I am all for anything natural.  I brush 2-3 times a day and floss regularly (sometimes not as much as my Dentist prefers).  I have always had a lot of plaque even with my oral hygiene regimen.

So to cut down on my plaque, I use this simple recipe.  I make it up ahead of time with only 3 ingredients!

Just mix them together and Swish!  It will soften any plaque and make it easy to remove with a dental pick.

No chemicals, no additives and so fast and cheap!


  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup Hydrogen Peroxide
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ Cup Warm Water
  • ½ Cup Cool Water

Materials Needed

  • Toothbrush
  • Dental Pick


  • Mix the baking soda with salt in a cup.
  • Wet your toothbrush in warm water and dip into baking soda mixture
  • Brush teeth for 5 minutes (spitting in between)


  • Mix the Hydrogen Peroxide with warm water slosh in your mouth for one a full minute
  • Expectorate and rinse with cool water.
  • Lightly scrape tartar with dental pick
  • Rinse with mouthwash

Repeat twice a week if you have a higher than usual plaque build up; otherwise once a week is good.

This extra effort is worth it and your Dentist will see the change.  I like it because my cleanings go faster, I don’t have bleeding gums and I cut my visits down to twice a year instead of three times a year.
