People love to see beauty hacks, and this one was hilarious. Some people told the girls to apply Vaseline next time before using the gentian violet.

According to Berea Mail, this teeth whitening remedy is not recommended by professionals, as it is only meant for external use. Speaking to Briefly News, a medical professional who wishes to remain unnamed confirmed this and said that gentian is strictly used to clean wounds.

The dentist in Bloemfontein said she would not recommend putting gentian in the mouth. According to the expert, it can cause lesions in the mouth, especially if the person has gum inflammation.
