How do people use baking soda to whiten teeth?

A lot of people use this home remedy that involves baking soda. A friend of mine did and his teeth are so white after a month. Hes off to Spain for 2 weeks so I came here to ask if anyone else knows how it works. Do you just use baking soda on its own or mix it with toothpaste or something else?

Thank you
