But if I have really bad morning breath I tend to do a practice called Oil Pulling! It completely sorted out my bad morning breath for the whole day! :).

It is just hard for me to do it consistently, but I am going to try.

Floss only when absolutely necessary, as in only if I feel food stuck in between my teeth and never been a fan for mouthwash. I am a lover of garlic and onions and yes, I eat them raw and believe me, morning breath is the least of my concerns.

It is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy for oral health and detoxification. Preventing breathing bad breath is one of its benefits. You can ready about it here.

I’m assuming they sell tongue scrapers at Target and I’ve just never noticed them?

(After I read your post, I had to dig out “Bossypants” because I remember Tina Fey covered this, and I know you love her, too! She describes it as waking up with a mouth that smells like a snail that’s been out in the sun. And then I kept reading…. Funny how that happens! I came across this totally off-topic quote, too: “I was a little excited but mostly blorft. “Blorft” is an adjective I just made up that means ‘Completely overwhelmed but proceeding as if everything is fine and reacting to the stress with the torpor of a possum.’ I have been blorft every day for the past seven years.” Good old Tina.)

She gave me a few, but I’ve actually never tried them. Either way, I hear that swigging a hydrogen peroxide/water solution is really effective, too. Hydrogen peroxide takes a lot of swigging to get out of your mouth, though!

I should try the tongue scraper, but my husband says he doesn’t mind my morning breath, which blows my mind since I can’t stand his :)!

Sort of a tongue brush/tongue scraper in one. Its gets rid of slimey mouth, so I really love it.

There’s lots of great advice here that I’m going to implement this week. Thanks girls!

Hubby and I just accept the fact we both have bad morning breath. Never thought about any of this stuff! At some point in my morning I brush my teeth—usually after coffee. And once again before bed. If I’m feeling particularly energetic then I’ll floss. :-)

Tongue scraping first thing in the morning, then 2 glasses of warm water. I recently upgraded from a plastic to a metal tongue scraper and couldn’t believe the difference in effectiveness–they are well worth the extra few dollars.

My mouth doesn’t have that yucky taste/feeling in the morning.

That way it’s a quick reach for a fast mouth refresh in the mornings. The mouthwash is also incredible & a great way to keep from getting sick with all it’s germ-killing properties. Our pediatrician said that germ-killing mouthwash & saline nasal spray are great ways to keep from getting sick because most “sick” germs attack through our mouths & noses.

If you dont have one then do yourself a favor and invest!

Use the one that says 12 hour protection. Just try to stay away from garlic and onions and drink milk. That would help.
