If your morning breath lasts all day, it might be time to take action.
You Will Need
* Citrus fruit
* 2 tsp. baking soda
* 2 sprigs parsley
* 2-3 cloves
* Black or green tea
* Water or fruit juice (optional)
Eat citrus fruit and other foods high in vitamin C to prevent bad breath. Eat one piece of fruit after each meal.
Mix baking soda in one liter of water. Gargle this mixture once or twice a day.
Boil two cups water and add parsley and cloves. Stir and let steep for five minutes. Use this as a mouthwash twice a day. Chew on fresh parsley for a quick freshen-up.
Drink water or fruit juice throughout the day. Keeping the mouth moist prevents bad breath.
Avoid bad-breath-causing foods such as ginger, garlic, onions, fish, cheese, and alcohol, especially whiskey.
Brush your teeth twice daily, floss, and use a tongue scraper.
Drink green and black teas, which are filled with breath-freshening polyphenols.
Fact: Onions and garlic cause bad breath because of their high sulfur content.
