Tongue Scraper

Twice a day we brush, floss and use mouthwash so our mouths feel minty fresh and clean.

Brushing and flossing our teeth gets rid of all the extra food and sugar and junk that gets left in our mouths after eating. Leaving it in our mouths would cause cavities, which we know we don't want - that's why we brush in the first place.

But what about our tongues? Don't forget to brush that too. If you find that brushing it doesn't quite get the job done, try using a tongue scraper.

Just hold on to the two ends with your hands. Place the curved metal part as far back as you can (you don't want to make yourself gag), and gently press the metal into your tongue as you slide it forward towards the tip.

You'll be amazed at what you find scrapes off. Rinse your tongue and the scraper too. Repeat a couple more times if you feel the need.

If you didn't get one from Santa, fear not since tongue scrapers are not only easy to use, but cheap too - $6 or less. They come in all shapes and colors. Want to see the variety? Then

I would like to recommend Oolitt as tongue cleaner. They have several models to fit a customer needs. Besides, a portion of their proceeds helps to support needy children around the world.
