We told you a while back how switching your tooth-brushing hand can improve your willpower, but if it's shinier teeth you're after, then shutting your eyes may be a better bet.

This may sound strange, but I have a brain-hack that gets you whiter teeth, and it’s free! Simply close your eyes while you are brushing your teeth. I have told people about this and you can get noticeable results inside two weeks. I guess that it works in two ways – first, since you’re brushing by feel you’re brushing where your mouth thinks it’s needed most, and second, you’re psychologically disassociating yourself from whatever else is going on in the normal rush to get ready in the mornings, thus putting yourself ‘in the zone’, if that makes any sense.
As with our previous teeth hack, your results may vary, but the experiment is unlikely to do you any harm. Thanks Simon!
