Garlic breath

It makes me want to every single time I am next to someone who stink it. The worst is when you can't escape them: on a bus, in a line up, in a waiting room...

Re: Garlic breath

As my wife loves garlic even more than I, this is not a problem.

I did have an ex-girlfriend ask me to refrain from garlic for at least three days before coming to visit (one of the reasons she's an EX!)

Re: Garlic breath

I perfectly agree with you, Nil. The garlic smell is hard to bare as well as the onion, but probably the latter one is not that strong (but still horrible). I don't like garlic in my food either, maybe due to the reason stated earlier.

The question is what do you do if you are stuck and can't move?

Re: Garlic breath

I was told eating raw parsley was a good antidote .. and it is handy as often there is a parsley garnish to dishes ... so don't push it to one side but eat it!

Re: Garlic breath

Just eat garlic yourself. Then you wont smell the others. Thats what the Spaniards do.

Re: Garlic breath

It reminds me of what happened with me 3 years ago. I just got a bag of 10 kg onion and then a week later I had sensitivity with certain kinds of food because of pregnancy and onion was the worst.
I couldn't eat onion and I couldn't stand the smell of it. So no onion in our food for a few months.

One time my husband had a lunch somewhere and there was onion in his food. When he came home I could smell it when he talked to me. So whenever he ate something with onion (even when he didn't realize there was onion in it) that meant no kisses for 3 days.
