You don't have to run to the drug store to fix your most embarrassing problems. Try these solutions using ingredients you may already have in your kitchen.

Baking Soda and Strawberries for Yellow, Stained Teeth

Baking soda is a natural abrasive that has been used for ages to clean teeth, while strawberries contain malic acid, a tooth-whitening agent. Combine 1 tablespoon baking soda and two crushed strawberries. Brush the mixture onto your teeth and then let is sit for a few minutes. Rinse or brush your teeth following the treatment. (While effective, this is not a long-term solution.)

Fennel Seeds for Gas and Bloating

Fennel seeds are a natural carminative, which means they help eliminate gas. Chew on a spoonful of seeds after you've eaten a big meal. Keep a small bowl at home and take some with you in a pill case or baggie for when you're on the go.
