Breath Mints

Breath Mints Ice Breakers Duo Mints in raspberry flavor are always in my purse. They’re flavorful and they do a great job of giving your breath a fresh scent. The mint is strong enough to deal with bad breath but not so strong it’s overpowering. The raspberry is a lovely fruity twist on a mint. The Ice Breakers Duo Mints also come in strawberry, watermelon and grape.


Peppermint Gum

Peppermint Gum If you’re more a gum kind of girl then peppermint gum is a great choice. Eclipse makes several different flavors of gum, but you can’t beat classic peppermint. They offer their gum in a car cup packaging, too. This is not only good to keep in your car, it’s also great to throw in your purse or keep on your desk. Minty gum is always a great defense against bad breath.



Mini-toothbrushes Mini-toothbrushes are great to throw in your purse to fight bad breath. You can brush anywhere at any time. There’s no need to carry toothpaste, either. Mini-toothbrushes have a built in flavor strip. There’s also no need for water when you use these. They’re self-sufficient in themselves.


Dental Floss

Dental Floss A lot of bad breath issues come from not flossing. Food particles and plaque build up can’t be completely removed without flossing. Flossing is the final step in good oral hygiene. Oral-B Glide Pro-Health is a good choice in floss and one that my dentist recommends. The special glide technology allows this floss to slip in tight spots that other flosses can’t.


Tea Bags

Tea Bags This one may have surprised you. It did me when I first learned about it. Tea can actually fight bad breath because of the flavonoids in it, which are a special type of antioxidant. This article by webmd.com explains this principle in more detail if you’re curious about it. Tea bags are an easy item to toss in your bag to enjoy later in your day. Enjoying a comforting cup of tea while freshening your breath all at one time sounds like a win-win to me.


A Bottle of Water

A Bottle of Water A bottle of water can actually be a great help in fighting bad breath. This is because bad breath can occur because of a dry mouth. The cure for this is simple: drink more water. Drinking water is healthy for you in so many ways. The fact that it fights off bad breath is just one benefit.


Apple Slices

Apple Slices Did you ever think that apple slices could help to fight bad breath? It can and let me tell you why. It’s because of the crisp, crunchy texture of the apple. When you crunch down on an apple, the texture of the fruit can help to remove bacteria and plaque from your teeth that cause bad breath. This principle also works with carrots, celery and other crunchy fruits and veggies.

These are 7 things you can throw in your purse to make sure you always have kissable breath. Was this article helpful to you? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Never been kissed, never went on a date (probably because I'm in middle school) but it is good to prepare!

Neat ideas

I agree with the apple option, but why pair it with peanut butter in the picture .... Isn't that demoting the point you're trying to make about bad breath??? Having said that peanut butter on apple slices..... Yum!

These are great suggestions
