Your tongue, as well as your teeth, needs to be cleaned frequently. Millions of bacteria collect on your tongue and a simple teeth brushing won’t wash away that bacteria. To clean it, you can either use a toothbrush or a tongue scraper. Tongue scrapers are designed to clean the coating on the upper surface of your tongue. They are quick and simple to use, not to mention they are super effective in improving your mouth’s freshness!
Steps to clean your tongue:
- Extend your tongue as far as you can and look for evidence of the coating that’s forming.
- Start scratching from the back to the front.
Rinse your mouth with water or antiseptic mouthwash to get rid of the leftover bacteria.

The flexibility allows the cleaning edge to reach the back and the concave center of the tongue without gagging caused by other designs.
