Quick Home Remedies For Bad Breath At The Office

James Allen asked:

it’s horrible when it happens – you’re at the office and you’ve been called into a meeting with the boss. you’ve just finished your third cup of coffee of the morning and cigarette break ended just minutes ago. You know your breath must smell terrible, but you don’t have a toothbrush or mouthwash. here’s what you need do to get through the face to face office confrontation without your halitosis ruining the day.

First, you need to reduce the amount of food particles and bacteria in your mouth as quickly as possible. Find some way to scrape your tongue, as that’s where a lot of the odor is likely coming from. A plastic stirring spoon from next to the office coffee machine works great in this case. Just don’t stick it in too far and gag yourself. No spoon? Be creative; the long flat end of a pencap or even a stiff business card can work in a pinch.

Next, you need to rinse your mouth out. Get a paper cup of water from the fountain, rinse well, gargle and spit. If you’re lucky enough to have a kitchenette in your office, stir some salt into that water first. The salt will help force out some of those food particles stuck between your teeth and temporarily stop some of the stink from food fermentation that may be occuring.

Now you have to make sure your breath can hold out for the length of the meeting. At this point you should try to hydrate your mouth and your body. Drinking a few cups of water now would be great, but don’t overdo it, you don’t want to have to run to the toilet in the middle of your meeting. A cup of black tea is good too, as the anti-oxidants will help keep your bad breath in check. Skip the cream and sugar, but if there’s a slice of lemon available, toss it in. Whatever you do, don’t drink more coffee, you’ll be right back to square one.

Finally, if at all possible, bum some gum off a co-worker to chew on the way to the meeting. You probably don’t have time to be picky at this point, but if the gum is sweetened with xylitol, even better. Make sure to grab a tissue too and remember to dispose of your gum in it before you get to the meeting.

Being stuck alone in your cubicle all day long can cause you to become very lax in your oral hygiene routine. Office culture also encourages a diet of coffee, soft drinks and unhealthy snacks that do not support clean breath. Because of this, many office workers suffer from bad breath, but don’t even know it until the worst possible moment. Luckily the routine above can save the day in a pinch.

Finding the Right Bad Breath Remedy

RAYMOND NWAMBUONWO asked:

What is more embarrassing in life than having bad breath? The sufferers are always on the lookout for the one bad breath solution that can cure them and make things immediately better for them, but bad breath remedies are not easy to find.

Since you are on the lookout for the perfecf solution that can work for you, the best place to start is definitely the doctor. Your doctor will give you more information on what type of remedy is best for you, and also give much more solid advice than anybody else out there because they know the inn’s and outs of your body better than anybody else.

Here is a remedy or two for your own personal use. Whether or not they work for you, is really up to you, but it is important to make sure that you are doing everything you can to find the right bad breath remedy for yourself, to make sure that you’re able to have close encounters with people in a comfortable way.

First tip drink more water! Usually the number one cause of bad breath, outside of neglecting to properly brush and floss teeth is a dry mouth. If you do not drink adequate water, chances are that your stinking breath is due to the lack of moisture in your mouth, so be sure to check that out. It is very important to drink enough water for many reasons but stink breath is only one of them.

If you can not appreciate lifting a glass of water to your lips, try eating more fruit. Most fruits are packed with water and a good way to get extra water in the body. Eating lots of fruits is also a good way of altering your diet to cure your bad breath as well, which leads to another remedy.

Alter the way you eat. Consuming too much meat and very little fresh fruits and vegetables, could be part of the factors to blame for your bad breath. Try eating more fresh food and less protein is a great bad breath remedy that really works for many people, particularly those who already brush and floss on a regular basis and do not seem to have a problem drinking enough water or getting enough moisture into the body.

Get off the steak bandwagon and have a salad instead. It is a bad breath solution, and one that works. Please just try it and see. It is much easier to cure than you think.
