Getting Rid of Cigar Breath

6 May 2011 in Uncategorized

After smoking a cigar, you might want to do something about “cigar breath.” It can be very powerful, and we’ve compiled a few tips on how to get rid of it.

  • First of all, brush your teeth and floss! This can help get the tobacco that might be lodged between your teeth and gums. Flossing also helps remove the plaque that builds up.
  • Scrape your tongue. This sounds painful, but it’s not. You can find scrapers in the toothbrush aisle at the grocery store. Why is this important? The tongue harbors the odor-causing bacteria in your mouth that leads to bad breath.
  • Use antiseptic. Normal mouthwash won’t help with cigar breath, so look for a cleanser that has hydrogen peroxide in it.
  • Don’t have any of that stuff handy while you’re out?  Some foods and drinks might help kill the odor such as orange juice and lemonade. You can also eat some dry cereal to help as well.
