Fresher Breath while wearing a mask

Brush your gums as well as your teeth with toothpaste, mouthwash and baking soda vigorously. Use dental floss. Gargle with mouth wash for several seconds. Some people may not be able to use baking soda. This is not medical advice, just a home remedy.
Any other suggestions are welcomed.


A human being deliberately chokes the life out of another human
