12 Tips to Getting Rid of Bad Breathe

  • The MOUTH care category
  • The BODY care category

The Mouth Care Category

Under this category, we will consider everything to be eaten or used in the mouth to have better breathing after drinking.

1. Do Not Mix Drinks

As a general rule, each type of alcohol has its own potent stink. Anyone who has ever smelled spilled beer versus whiskey, wine, vodka or gin can attest to this. Likewise, each of them will bring a special nastiness to your breath and body the next day.

To help combat the overpowering smell of alcohol breath, make sure you only drink one type of beverage the evening or day before. That way you’re only fighting one unpleasant smell and not the whole bar.
2. Use a Mouth Wash
There is a saying dentists like to use, that goes like this — FBI. No, it’s not the real FBI, but instead, it means you need to Floss, Brush, and Irrigate. It’s the irrigation part that matters here, as we’ll assume you followed step one above and have already flossed and brushed. To irrigate, you can just use water, but a quick home method is to mix water and fresh lemon for a fresh mouth wash.
Alternatively, you can use one of the popular brands like Listerine or Colgate. The important thing is to make sure you rinse your mouth for at least 20 seconds to help get rid of the alcohol smell.
3. Brush Your Teeth
It goes without saying that brushing your teeth can make your breath smell a whole lot better, but did you know that brushing your tongue is an important part of the process too? Bacteria can build up on your tongue, and even after you brush your teeth, the stink of alcohol breath can still mix with all that bad bacteria on your tongue.
To combat this, make sure you brush your tongue too. Of course — before you brush you should floss, although depending on how bad your breath is, you might want to first brush, and then floss and brush again

4. Chew Raw Garlic or Onion

For most of us, this is a date killer, but unless you were out drinking with someone other than your date, it’s not going to matter. The easiest way to do this is to mash up some raw garlic or onion (or both) and mix them with something to eat.
For those of you who deserve an iron man award, you can eat them straight. For everyone else, we recommend the food mixing method. What you mix it with is up to you, but we have some suggestions below.

5. Eat Fruit Salad

We don’t like to recommend doing things that will cause your teeth to rot, and in all honesty, the sugar in candy can contribute to its very own type of nasty bad breath. However, if you have some mint candies or Wintergreen Lifesavers, now’s the time to indulge. They’ll at least make you smell a little fresher, and on top of everything else we’ve suggested here, it’s the way to go.

6. Take Something Spicy ( pepper soup for example)

Spicy foods will boost your metabolism. This will help your body process things faster. It’s also a great time to consider mixing in that garlic or those fresh onions we mentioned earlier — particularly if you normally wouldn’t eat them.

The spicy hot of your food will help you get down the garlic and onions, and while anyone sitting next to you won’t probably appreciate it, they’ll unknowingly be thankful it wasn’t alcohol breath they had to smell instead.
7. Drink a lot of Water

The more water you drink, the more hydrated you will be. The more hydrated you are, the less alcohol stink you’ll push out each hour. This means you’ll smell a little bit better, in addition to feeling better. Of course, this doesn’t do much, but it’s added ammo in your arsenal of tricks to get rid of alcohol breath.
8. Chew Gum
Once you’ve rinsed out that nasty alcohol mouth of yours, you’ll want to grab a stick of sugar-free gum. The reason to go sugar-free is twofold. First, the bacteria in your mouth love to feast on sugar, and as they decay, it stinks. Second, you want to keep yourself from having cavities (they stink worse than bad breath). So do yourself a favor and chew sugar-free gum to get rid of beer breath.

The Body care Category

For this category, we will look at the various things to be done to and on our body to keep the alcoholic smell in check.

1. Have a cold Bath

The smell of alcohol doesn’t just come from your mouth as the alcohol exits your lungs. It also comes from your pores, meaning your breath and your body stink.
Much like spraying a pine-scented air freshening spray into a stinky bathroom won’t do more than making it smell like a stinky pine forest, hiding your alcohol stink won’t work too well if your body reeks. So do yourself and the world a favor, and take a cold shower or bath.

2. Use Body Lotion and Baby Powder or Corn Starch

This is a two-part combo. The baby powder or corn starch will help to absorb moisture, which reduces moisture. Less moisture equals fewer places for bacteria to grow and stink. The body lotion will hydrate your skin, and help to mask any alcohol smell that will be trying to ooze from your pores.
3. Use Cologne or Perfume

Hopefully, it’s a well-known fact that the more you drink, the less you notice just how overpowering your cologne or perfume is when you apply more and more as the night goes on. However, the next day you should be interested in applying cologne or perfume to specific parts of your body to mask the alcohol smell. Spray or dab once in each of these places;

  • Each of your wrists.
  • Each side of your neck.
  • The center of your chest, between your breasts.
  • Just below your belly button.

4. Use of Deodorant

The worst thing about smelling bad is that you usually don’t know it’s you who stinks. In fact, if body odor was poisonous, people on buses and at sporting events around the world would slowly fall to the floor, exclaiming, “But I don’t smell a thing.” Therefore, when you get out of the shower, liberally apply deodorant. Then apply some more.
