Get rid of bad breath

• Brush your teeth at least twice a day – this includes brushing your tongue. Although there are many reasons for bad breath, your tongue can trap plaque, bacteria or food that cause bad breath. Clean between your teeth with cotton thread at least once a week, or more often if you can. This is called flossing.

• Eat breakfast. I you skip breakfast, your breath will probably smell all morning or until lunchtime when you have food.

• Mouth wash. Make your own by putting three teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda in a cup of warm water.

• Eat an orange. Stress and some medications can cause your mouth to be dry and smell bad. Citrus fruit, such as oranges, lemons and grapefruit, stimulate the saliva (spit) and freshen your mouth.

• Drink water. A dry mouth is an ideal place for bacteria to grow. That’s why most of us have bad breath after long night’s rest. Keep your mouth moist all the time by drinking water regularly.

• Chew greens or gum. Parsley is an instant breath freshener and is good for killing garlic breath. Otherwise chew sugar-free chewing gum.
