What happens if you smoke while using crest whitestrips?

It says not to, just wondering what would happen since it's such a big no no.

It says not to smoke while you are wearing an oxygen canual too. Ya know why? Because you will burst into flames and die. (no joke... this is a major source of fires and deaths in old folks homes.) I'm not sure why crest says this (they usually don't put warnings on the box without having to pay out a major lawsuit over it though....) BUT, I do know that most of the whitening products use hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide produces pure oxygen when it reacts... and when pure oxygen hits a smoldering flame like a cigarette... it bursts into flame. That is why it has literally been used as a rocket fuel in the past. I'm willing to bet that has something to do with it.

PS: If the issue was just that it didn't work if you smoked while doing it... Crest would NOT put a warning on the box. It not working would cause you to continue to buy it longer trying to get it to work... which would be good for their bottom line...
