Minimizing a Breakout: Soak one un-coated Ibuprofen pill w/ just a couple drops of water. When it looks like its starting to dissolve, crush w/ spoon to make a thick paste & apply to the breakout for 10-15 min. Voila!
never buy white strips again!: dip q-tip in hydrogen peroxide (the key ingredient in whitestrips) and apply to surface of teeth for 30 sec before brushing teeth) once a day for a few days. Teeth will look whiter in 2 days.
