Wedding-day white teeth! My dentist actually told me about this. Use a little toothpaste, mix in one teaspoon baking soda plus one teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide, half a teaspoon water. Thoroughly mix then brush your teeth for two minutes. Remember to do it once a week until you have reached the results you want. Once your teeth are good and white, limit yourself to using the whitening treatment once every month or two.

Tablespoons of Tomato Paste Often you only need one or two tablespoons of tomato paste at a time. What do you do with what’s left in the can? Try dividing the paste into exact tablespoon measures on a plate, and place the plate in the freezer. Once the dollops of paste are frozen solid, transfer them to a resealable plastic bag, and place the bag in the freezer. This way you’ll always have exact measures of tomato paste on hand!
