Many people complain of having bad breath. The causes can be multiple: cavities, gums, digestion problems ... The mouth contains millions of bacteria that must be eliminated to regain good breath.

10 grandma's tips to keep your breath fresh

Brush your teeth after every meal

To fight germs in your mouth, it is important to brush your teeth. Do this after each meal if possible, to remove food residues stuck between the teeth that are responsible for bad breath.

Clean your tongue

It is often forgotten, but the tongue also contains bacteria! Gently brush the rough surface of the tongue to get rid of dead skin cells. Use either your toothbrush or a tongue scraper.

To drink a lot

It is important to drink at least 1.5 liters of water each day to fight bad breath. Staying hydrated is essential for keeping breath fresh. For example, bad breath in the morning is caused by a lack of hydration.

Make regular mouthwashes

Mouthwashes are effective in reducing bad breath and fighting bacteria. Make natural mouthwashes, several times a day if necessary: mouthwash with baking soda, mouthwash with cloves ...

Using a water flosser

The water flosser will get rid of the ingredients stuck between your teeth, which will give you better breath. Otherwise, use dental floss, which is also useful, but less effective.

The lemon

This natural antiseptic will eliminate bacteria from your mouth. Biting a lemon or drinking its juice will help you get rid of bad breath.


Chewing parsley after every meal makes your breath fresh! Especially if you've consumed garlic before ... However, you will definitely get parsley stuck between your teeth!

Cloves are great for giving you fresh breath. You can nibble on a clove at the end of a meal.
