Clean your tongue – using toothbrush or a tongue cleaner. This will remove countless bacteria that are sitting in oral cavity and on the surface of the tongue. Not cleaning the tongue is one of the reasons for bad breath or halitosis. And, you don’t want people to turn away from you!
The tongue harbors bacteria and food particles trapped under a thin layer of mucus. Remove this odor-causing buildup by using a small dab of toothpaste and carefully brushing the top of the tongue. Start by reaching to the back of the tongue, and then work forward toward the opening of the mouth. Brush the entire top surface of the tongue using gentle pressure, and finish by rinsing with water.
