Cleaning your tongue

  • Clean the sides of your tongue, not just the top. The sides are always in touch with your teeth
  • and if left unclean, may cause cavities.
  • Stick your tongue out while cleaning it. This will help you reach the back of your tongue with lesser gagging.
  • Always move your tongue scarper/ cleaner out and away from your tongue. Use long strokes in a single outward direction.
  • Don’t press your cleaners while cleaning. This might damage your taste buds.
  • It is normal to sense a change in the taste of your food and drink after cleaning your tongue. This is because of the removal of bacteria and their products from your tongue.
