Looking for a cheap and natural way to freshen your breath? Then, try this simple mouthwash recipe:
Add half a teaspoon of baking soda to half a glass of water, and use it to gargle – an instant fix for even the worst case of bad breath.
Why This Works and How?
Baking soda neutralizes the odors in your mouth, rather than just covering them up, as many, if not indeed, all manufactured mouthwashes do.
Benefits of Using Baking Soda Mouthwash that it is inexpensive, contains no harsh chemicals, has no strong taste and is alcohol-free.
- Keep some baking soda in your purse or briefcase, and you can even freshen your breath on the go.
- Add a drop of peppermint oil for a minty taste.
- If you prefer to make up big batches, boil your water, and add a teaspoon of baking soda for every eight ounces of water. Store in a sterilized container.
