So I bought one of those "Guacamole Kits" from TJ's. Even though Trader Joe's screwed up and gave me like 3 cloves of garlic, I ate it anyway because I love guacamole. My girlfriend comes home and literally says, "It smells like bad breath". Immediately I knew it was me. From what I have read, because of the sulfur like gasses from garlic it goes into your in through your lungs and makes your breath stink for like 72 hours! I can smell it in my hands too. does anyone have any miracle remedies for this? I am at work and so far I have chewed 4 pieces of gum and a handful of mints but I don't know if I am just making it worst.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

The only way around this is for everyone else to eat garlic too. Same for durian fruit, which is also delicious but nasty breath inducing. Other than that there is no cure, so to speak, and giving up garlic simply isn't an option.

chewing on parlsey is supposed to help get rid of garlic breath.....are you sure you're not just super sensitive worrying about it?<br><br>
also, just looked it up for you, drinking some lemonade, hot green or mint tea can help, and chewing on mints, which just masks the smell, but can help. Oh, and brush your teeth!

I know for a fact that if you have garlic smelling fingers after cutting up garlic, rubbing them on a stainless steel sink neutralizes the smell. Maybe you should try licking your kitchen sink with your tongue <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

use a mouth freshener or chew some bubble gum. I also hate garlic breath so much and I have faced insults due to garlic breath. I use mouth freshener if I feel some bad smells.<br><br><a href="http://thecampbootcamp.com/" target="_blank">Chino Hills Boot Camp</a>
