How to Get Rid of Garlic Breath

Eat parsley to reduce garlic breath.
It’s difficult to get rid of garlic breath but it can be reduced by usual oral hygiene methods. Standard halitosis remedies include regular use of mouthwash, brushing and flossing teeth and tongue scraping.

Another way to reduce garlic breath is to eat parsley. It helps solve the problem to some extent, although it doesn’t prevent it completely. However it is not enough just to sprinkle in a teaspoon of dried parsley when cooking. To get the effect, you need to chew at least one sprig of fresh parsley, preferably more. Ideally this should be chopped and added near the end of cooking.

Chewing cardamom seeds has a similar effect to parsley and can work as a garlic breath remedy. Cardamom has a very strong flavour so this might not be an option for some.
