Is it dangerous?

Or am i just crazy for coming up with something like that?! :p

Do other People do it ?

Jm e
Go ahead and do it. Then let us know what happens.
Write down instructions for someone else to post the results on YA, because you won't be able to.

don't do it. very hazardous

woo hoo
Um im 15 and I wouldn't even dream of doing something like this. come on sweetie. This is a very bad thing to do it can get u veryy sick or kill you. Don't do it get some whitening strips of something

You're crazy and immature!

Dont do it it could kill u!!!!

Use rubbing alcohol, juss dip your toothbrush in the rubbing alcohol or pour it on or watever and put your toothpaste on and brush. It's ok to swallow a little juss not alot. Dont worry when it foams up while your brushing juss spit it out and continue. Trust it works cuz i do it every nite.

Clorox is meant for clothes and only clothes. It is highly toxic if you get it in your mouth. People always have a automatic tendency to swallow when liquid gets in their mouths. You could die. It's very dangerous. Please don't do it.

Baby #1 Due in September!
Just use crest writestrips premium plus.. You will hurt your teeth if you do that.

Good God no! Not unless you like throwing up.

Mrs. Curious
Umm idk i think it might be a good plan but then again its dangerous and yecky lol imma try it just dont swollow it

dalma jen
No, it will damage the enamel on your teeth. There are so many products out there, don't resort to silly things, like harsh chemicals!

well its not a good idea cas if u bi accident take in anyy then its poisonous and it wont help whiten anyway

That's really dumb.

Nathan D
I'm pretty sure you'll die. :(
x x

it's not the same kind of bleach and you will protentially kill yourself by ingesting any of the clorox. I can't remember the name of the dentistry bleach but you can buy tubes of it on amazon and ebay, it comes in syringes and you can add that to your trays.

lisa p.
Yes and you will die.

Tim S
Do not do this. This is bad on every level.
I mean, You could use a little bit of bleach to help kill of germs but the amount needed for whitening purposes is far too much.

The clorox will wreak serious havoc on your internal organs! Don't use real bleach to whiten your teeth!

I'm pretty sure clorox will yellow your teeth. It yellows cloths after time. Try hydrogen peroxide.

This is actually really dangerous. You could burn your gums out, even if the bleach is watered down. I don't recommend it.
You can try, as an alternative, brushing with baking powder, it tastes nasty, but it works.

OMG, Don't Ever Do That !!! Bleach will kill you if ingested ! I, also doubt it would bleach anything !!!!

NO!it will take the enamel off your teeth and it will hurt your teeth to eat something as simple as ice cream...and i imagine it wont taste so well either.

Peace and Love
By and large the potential risk can be minimized and nothing to be worried about but worth looking into.

3 Potential Dangers in Whitening Your Teeth

1) For those people who have sensitive gums and soft mouth tissue, they could respond negatively to the chemicals solutions such as carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide that are normally used in tooth whitening procedures.

Special precaution should be taken if you try to apply these chemicals by yourself at home. Make sure that none of the chemicals come in contact with any mouth tissue except your teeth.

Normally if the procedures is done at the dentist's office the risk could be greatly minimized. The dentist have the professional tools to safeguard your teeth and prevent other mouth tissues from come in contact with the chemicals used.

Some teeth whitening home kits do provide some protection tools such as mouthguard. Since this mouthguard is one size fits all so it may not work very well with everyone. It may fit some people perfectly but may not fit others well.

2) Chemical used in teeth whitening could also affect people who have sensitive teeth after the treatment. This reaction is normally very noticeable when eating food while they too are hot or too cold such as ice cream.

3) The chemicals used (carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide) in the whitening procedures could also be potentially dangerous if swallowed. Some people will have a reaction of stomach upset, nausea and vomiting.

Some case studies have shown that the use of hydrogen peroxide for teeth whitening has been associated with the development of tongue cancer. While there is no conclusive or large enough sampling to quantify the claims but there is something to be aware about.

Good Luck. If you feel the need to.. Well I guess you can its your life! =) I hope I helped.


You'd probably visit a mental facility for attemted suicide.

No. Its not a good idea.

Anastasia Beaverhousen
OMG that's a terrible idea! Geez!!

NOOO!!! If you swallow it you'll get very sick. It will also make your teeth unnaturally white, like white white.

Totally not a good idea. It eats the enamel off your teeth. I know a guy that is 50ish that did this to his teeth as a teenager. His teeth are so stained and there is nothing that can be done for them. Don't do it.

Yes it is dangerous, it will ruin your teeth and can poison you.
Please do not do that.

Jenny Mc
Bleach is not only toxic to ingest, but can also damage your skin and enamel, goodness only knows what it would do to your poor gums! I don't know where you came up with this idea, but putting dangerous chemicals in your mouth is NEVER a good idea. You could become very ill, ruin your teeth and cause injury to your gums, please, please do not do this!

A cheap form of teeth whitening that IS safe is as follows:

Mix 2 parts baking soda to 1 part hydrogen peroxide. Dip your toothbrush in it and brush your teeth in a circular motion. Be sure to rinse well and DO NOT SWALLOW any of the mixture. While hydrogen peroxide is safe to swish in your mouth or brush your teeth with, it is not safe to swallow. This is the only method I use to whiten my teeth as it works so well and does not make my teeth feel weak like whitening trays or strips.

Best of luck, and keep your clorox for cleaning the bathroom, not your mouth!
