You’ve been there before. You’re out with the guys, and you strike up a conversation with the hottie whose destined to be your next ex-girlfriend. Then you notice something horrible coming back at you from your empty glass. Your breath. It smells like something your dog expelled. You need to do something about it…stat.
Since it’s likely you don’t have a toothbrush and toothpaste handy, it’s time to take matters into your own hands. Here are some possible quick-fixes to help get your game-face back on:
Sugar-Free Gum/Mints – Easy to carry around, and offer up to a friend in need. Make sure it’s sugar-free though. The other stuff feeds on mouth bacteria, and give the opposite of the desired effect.
Fruit – A restaurant will have plenty on hand. You’ll look healthier, and it can suppress and control bacteria and sulfur. Apples, in particular.
Tongue-Scraping – Swipe a spoon and take it to the bathroom. Run it ladle-side down, and rinse it off after each swipe. You’ll thank us for this tip.
Water – It’s the wonder-liquid. Rebalances your oral environment, and helps clean-out crud between your teeth.
Yogurt – Unsweetened is best. The cultures in it compete with your mouth funk. Just don’t put all that other self-serve crap in it.
Now, you’re ready to get up-close-and-personal with that new woman-of-your-dreams. Just not too close at-first, creepo.
