Garlic Breath

I went totally overboard with raw garlic on my green beans tonight for dinner. I have brushed my teeth twice, flossed, brushed my tounge and mouth washed. My breath is so bad I have to keep my mouth closed. Does anyone have any remedies?

How is possible to go overboard with garlic?

(unless there was more garlic than beans?)

just be glad it keeps the vampires away

A lady in the village used to make picked garlic cloves; after 10 or 12 of these you could strip wallpaper in neighbours houses.

Re: Garlic Breath

I have parsely in my fridge. We could have a snog to see if it works?

Well lets just say there were maybe 15 beans and 2 cloves of garlic but there was no garlic left on my plate after I had eaten the beans

Re: Garlic Breath

My girlfriend and I both love garlic (as do my kids), I typically use a whole head when I make a cheese fondue for 3-4.

Yes, but it's a three hour drive.

Re: Garlic Breath

Whole milk could help to neutralise it a bit. I came across a study saying that consuming milk products (together) with garlic might actually ease the garlic ingestion and prevent bad breath.

Re: Garlic Breath

Tom I was wondering if I could have a lift?

Tchant I have drank some milk because my tea was too hot and I feel as though it has helped, although could be a psychological thing..

Alas, I normally only go to the north side once the passes open (June)

Re: Garlic Breath

You should try clove. Apparently it works well too. Don't swallow it, just keep it in your mouth and bite in it.

When I have too much garlic, I eat cookies or bread afterwards. For some reason it seems to help, I don't know why but it does (for me anyway..).
