How To: Get rid of bad breath with home remedies

Get rid of bad breath with home remedies

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)

Step 1
Eat citrus fruit and other foods high in vitamin C to prevent bad breath. Eat one piece of fruit after each meal.

Step 2
Mix baking soda in one liter of water. Gargle this mixture once or twice a day.

Step 3
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.

Step 4
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.

Step 5
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.
