When you’re in the company of someone with mouth odour, it can be really bad. And many people who have bad breath don’t realise they do. You try to keep away from the odour by leaning back. But that
doesn’t always work.
Then you’re thrust into the awkward position of trying to tell someone their breath stinks. You’re unsure how said person will take it. Try my solution:
“ Always give that person a breath mint and hope to the gods they get the message. ”
If you’re the person with bad breath and you know about it, here are four easy ways to get rid of it:
Lemons like most citrus fruits are acidic. They prevent the growth of most bacteria. To get rid of mouth odour, add a teaspoon of lemon to a cup of water. Add a pinch of salt. Gargle this mixture before bed daily.
2. Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has antiseptic properties. To get rid of bad breath, mix a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with a cup of water and drink every day after meals. Your bad breath will disappear within a few weeks.
3. Baking soda
Baking soda is the “baba nla” of DIY hacks everywhere. You can use it to white your teeth, remove bad breath and even to bake. For mouth odour, mix a teaspoon of baking soda in warm water. Gargle this mixture twice a day for maximum effect.
When I say tea, I don’t mean the Naija version of the word. I mean black or green or herbal teas. They are great for banishing mouth odour. Simply drinking green tea 3 times a day can cure your bad breath.
