What are some home made remedies for whitening your teeth?

I got my braces off a month ago and i need my teeth to be white really quick.. But i dont have the money for any expensive stuff.

Okay, this sounds really weird, but strawberries whiten teeth because they contain malic acid. Cut off the tops, mush them up, add a little baking soda and use it like a toothpaste. Leave it on the teeth for about five minutes then brush your teeth like normal to wash it away. :)

EDIT: oohh, akaetc just reminded me below (thanks akaetc!) If you are going to use this method, only do it once a week, because it can damage your tooth enamel if used too regularly. :)

Brush with that Baking soda tooth paste, It worked for me. But it doesn't taste the greatest. :)

Be careful though because I've heard strawberries (rubbed on) is one way. But I've also heard strawberries are guilty of removing important plaque that can never be replaced once gone. I also recently heard somewhere that vinegar is a safe & useful way. But yukkk?
