Sometimes a quick bad whiff of your own breath comes when mouthwash, toothpaste, and breath mints are out of reach. With these tricks, however, you can outsmart halitosis no matter where you are.
1.) Eat a Crunchy Pieace of Fruit or Veggie : If you have an apple, carrot stick, piece of celery, or any other crunchy, organic food at your fingertips, eat it! Crunchy fruits and veggies not only clean the surface of your chompers, but they also stimulate saliva production so that you can flush out the bacteria causing your halitosis. If you only have access to candy, crackers, or other non-crunchy foods, go ahead and eat those to refresh your mouth if you are really in a pinch. Although they may not clean your teeth or give you great breath instantly, they will help clear out whatever is causing bad breath in your mouth.
2.) Brush Your Tongue: If you don’t have access to toothpaste but you do have a toothbrush, go ahead and brush your teeth but make sure to brush your tongue! Most people know this, but in case you didn’t, clear the bacteria on your tongue with your toothbrush.
3.) Drink Water: Water, more than any other beverage, will flush your mouth out and refresh your breath, which is convenient because water is also easier to find than any other beverage in a pinch.
