After every meal, be sure that your toothbrush is in good shape. A chewed up, disfigured brush will miss those hard-to-reach areas.
A lemon wedge sprinkled with salt will help stop onion or garlic
3. Parsley & Mint:
Before mouthwash was created, people would chew on herbs to fight bad breath. Fresh herbs contain chlorophyll, which absorbs odors. Some particularly good fresh herbs to try are parsley, mint, and basil etc. If your meal comes with a fresh sprig of parsley, or other herb, chew it for instantly fresher breath.
Drinking water right after eating garlic or onions may not immediately get rid of the odor, drinking lots of water on a regular basis can help your breathe stay fresher overall.
5. Chewing gum:
chewing gum increases the flow of saliva in the mouth so bacteria are washes away. The key is to ensure that the gum is sugarless. Gum with sugar should be avoided because sugar ferments bacteria which will worsen the problem.
6. Clean your tongue as you clean your clean your teeth:
the top of the tongue is a place that bacteria love to lodge, especially at the back of the mouth. If the mouth is not clean after eating, a lot of remains are left here which bacteria start working on and causing odor.
7. Eat yogurt for sweeter breath.
Yogurt replenishes the good bacteria in the gut and “promotes a healthier mouth”. You may also try eating parsley between meals to fresh breath.
8. Apple Cider vinegar:
not only gargling with ½ teaspoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with a cup of water, it actually made mouth feel quite pleasant.
9. Seeds & coffee Beans:
chewing a whole cloves, or fennel, or anise seeds can immediately fight bad breath. While the cloves worked, the anise worked really well. Chewing roasted coffee beans actually works quite well too.
A lack of carbs in your diet can contribute to bad breath. Eating a slice of bread with your meal may help keep your breath smelling better.
