Benefits of charcoal

We possibly would have heard of activated charcoals, if not you could learn more about it from search engines and pharmaceutical related write ups, now we want to talk about one of the most disregarded home product which most don’t even know of, continue reading as we elaborate a little on uses and benefits of this material.

1. Preventing odour

Your shoes smell, your fridge and room corner smells, why not put a charcoal at the suspected spot and let it do the rest. This is an old adopted style used mostly by our grannies, I could remember vividly my grandma collecting ashes from charcoal pots and use on toilet floors before washing to eradicate odour.

2. Keeping vegetables fresh

Heard and noticed vegetables kept in refrigerators lose taste, why not try out the prowess of charcoal, make a solution of it and put the vegetables in it. It also can help to detoxify the vegetables from fertilizers and other agents.

3. Whitening of teeth

Have your teeth become stained from coffee, tea, wine or berries? Charcoal helps whiten teeth while promoting good oral health by changing the pH balance in the mouth, helping prevent cavities, bad breath and gum disease.
It works to whiten teeth by adsorbing plaque and microscopic tidbits that stain teeth.To whiten your teeth naturally, wet a toothbrush and dip into powdered activated charcoal. Brush teeth as normal, paying special attention to areas showing the most staining. Leave on for about three minutes and then sip a bit of water, swish through mouth thoroughly and spit.

4. Skin cleansing and ulcer treatment

It can help to treat acne and other facial “issues”. And can help treat ulcer. (Read more about this, try out activated charcoal).
