How to Get Rid of Onion Breath

Many people are familiar with the concept of garlic breath, but not as many think about onion breath. Onions, due to their strong odor, can make your breath smell considerably worse than it did before you ate. We've got some tips here to help you out.

First and foremost, the most efficient thing to do is to brush your teeth. Brushing your teeth will loosen and wash away any onion particles that are stuck in your teeth. In addition, the minty smell of toothpaste will help mask any lingering onion smell that is left behind. Make sure to floss before brushing, to help free trapped food.

If you can't brush, try rinsing with mouthwash if that's available to you. Mouthwash can be found in small, portable bottles at many stores. Head to your local store's travel section, and you should be able to find it. Carry one with you if you anticipate that you'll need it. Mouthwash may not be as effective as brushing your teeth thoroughly, but it can still work very well.

If neither of those options are available to you, then try rinsing your mouth with just water. This one won't be nearly as effective, but it can still help manage the onion smell. We recommend rinsing a few times to ensure you get the maximum effect. Make sure you swish the water across your entire mouth.
