(http://ow.ly/s8RR30nvfIK)

If you suffer from bad breath, make sure to brush your tongue at least once every day. Don't just do a quick once-over either. Pay special attention to the back of your tongue. According to experts, the back of your tongue is where the majority of odor-causing bacteria hangs out. Once you're done scrubbing your tongue, rinse with a fluoride-based mouthwash for a minty-fresh finish.
