Dentistry/mint flavor

Question
I would like to use a whitening mouth wash, but they are all mint flavored and I can't stand the taste of mint mouthwash. Would it be safe/effective to add peroxide to my regular mouthwash? If so, what proportion should I use?

Answer
jo
try searching online for nonflavored mouthwashes. you never know what you might find.

if you want to get some stain off, try this home remedy...dip your brush in peroxide...take the wet brush and then dip it in some baking soda, creating a slurry on the brush. brush with this. the bubbling action along with baking soda does help remove surface staining.

good luck
