Perfect Pearly Whites

Rembrandt just released new Stain Dissolving Strips, and I was eager to see how they worked. Teeth whitening strips that you use twice a day? Sounds easy enough. The fact that they're dissolvable? Even better. The directions were simple: Apply a strip to both your upper and lower teeth, two times a day. They dissolve in just 5 to 10 minutes, and results were promised after 14 days of use. The verdict? After the two weeks of recommended use, I definitely noticed my teeth were whiter and brighter. One of my favorite aspects of the Rembrandt strips was the portability. Each strip is in its own packaging, roughly the size of a Band-Aid. It's easy for people on the go who need to tuck them in a purse or pocket. A con, though, was the dissolvability. While it was convenient to pop them in and go about my day, the strips left some sticky remnants on my teeth even after I waited 10 minutes or longer. It wasn't enough of a bother to deter me from using them, though, and I liked the results. They're a great quick fix for those who don't want to spend the money on professional whitening. A two-week supply sells for $25 at Target stores. –Heather Weekley, @heather_weekley
