    Default Strawberries

    Do they really bleach your teeth?

    I would be afraid they would stain them pink.

    I've never heard that Banana. Where did you hear that?

    I know that they have stained my kitchen counter pink and I had to scrub it off with citrus cleaner!

    yes they do! You just mash them into a pulp and spread them on your teeth, then let them soak a bit. When you're finished just rinse and brush with toothpaste.

    jeepers who would have thought it you can clean your freakin teeth by rubbin em with strawberry

    I looked it up on google and there are quite a few web sites suggesting to do this saying it can remove stains. Apparently strawbs have a mild bleacing effect on yer teeth, but not in your benches or your clothes.

    I'm going to try it now, I wonder how long it takes.

    There is nothing wrong in buying 2 for 3.. It is supposed to be eaten in installments. The moral of the story is "too much is too bad"..

    Trouble with strawbs is that they are in the 'dirty dozen' because the sprayed pesticide remains in them for a l-o-n-g time!

    Yeah and they are on the list of common allergens. If I eat to many over a short period, like everyday, I get hives on me arms

    I like blueberries and raspberries better...... ....with (v)icecream

    OMG - I have eczema on my arms and I have been eating a hell of a lot of strawberries lately - I thought it was all the nuts I have been eating, but possibly not.

    If it is the strawberries you have to reduce. I have a couple once a while with no probs
