SKILLMAN, N.J. — Oral care brand Rembrandt is turning heads with its new Intense Stain stain dissolving strips. Yep, dissolving! These strips are ideal for those who love foods that can leave surface stains — like coffee, tea and wine — but want whiter teeth. These strips promise to noticeably whiten surface stains and dissolve on the teeth in five to 10 minutes. After two weeks of use — twice daily — teeth will be noticeably whiter, and the strips also help protect against the build-up of future stains. One box contains 56 whitening strips and is priced at $24.99.
