Clean your tongue

Cleaning your tongue can be a frustrating experience if you have a gag reflex.
However there are millions of bacteria that like to live on the tongue such as the bad breath bacteria.

We now know that the COVID-19 organism can be prevalent on the tongue and as well as in the saliva.

It’s important to clean the tongue so here are some suggestions to help:
Use a flat tongue scraper which has a lower profile than a toothbrush
• Open wide, take a big breath then scrape from the back of the tongue to the tip when you exhale
Rinse the tongue scraper under running water after each stroke
Store the tongue scraper upright to dry as a damp tongue scraper fosters germ growth
