Multi-Level Marketing and Dental Products
Be wary of products saying they will whiten teeth. Most have little to no effect and some will even have the opposite effect.
Fruit,vinegar and baking soda
Fruits and vinegar are acidic. While fruit is a great part of a good diet, prolonged exposure can damage tooth enamel.
Products with charcoal
There is no proof that charcoal is effective or safe for your teeth. Using abrasive materials can also have the effect of yellowing teeth by actually rubbing the enamel away (the party you are trying to whiten). http://jada.ada.org/article/S0002-8177(17)30412-9/fulltext
Oil Pulling and Turmeric
There simply isn't any evidence to support the idea that these can whiten teeth
If you are wanting to whiten your teeth, talk to your dentist first and use only ADA/CDA approved methods.

I found out about a product this is not so good. AP24 sold by NuSkin. This MLM company has had multiple of its illegal selling and fraudulent practices fined over the years in various countries from China to the USA. It's been labelled a pyramid scheme by some. Here a dentist explains exactly what I said in my original post about mlm companies selling dental products. It is abrasive. https://youtu.be/zlFKKNKgZ8k I suggest not using this product.
