Today is #FreshBreathDay…. Even better, I’ve found a video of a #cat having its teeth brushed.
If you’re a vampire hunter, it’s OK to have smelly breath. If you get pinned against the wall by a blood-sucker, the scent of last night’s garlic pasta might be useful. But in any other career… fresh breath is a must.
No doubt you’ve seen silly online adverts for ‘weird tricks’ and ‘herbal remedies’ for keeping your breath fresh. Yeah, those are from hucksters trying to get your cash. Ignore them. There is no secret formula or miracle cure.
After looking into the subject and seeing what dentists recommend, these are the basic rules you need to follow to keep your breath nice and clean:
- Drink plenty of water throughout the day
- Use an electric toothbrush with a soft head
- Brush for two minutes twice a day, all around your mouth
- WHen brushing, be gentle. Imagine a fairy tiptoeing across a dandelion
- Floss. Even if you don’t have any bits lurking, it works
#Euroffice staff tip – Keep a foldable toothbrush and a travel size mouthwash in your office drawer, so you freshen up after that ‘big burrito’ lunch. This also helps to liven you up a bit for the afternoon data crunching.
Of course, everyone is different and you should seek advice if you’ve got particular problems. But, by and large, those rules are all you need.
It’s not complicated, time-consuming or expensive. Heck, if a cat can do it, why can’t you?
Let’s all do better than Mr. Bean could manage when he was about to meet @Queen_UK in this clip (approx 1 min 45 sec in).
