TODAY IS FRESH BREATH DAY
Nobody likes having a close quarters conversation with that one person who’s just had onions and garlic for lunch, so Fresh Breath Day was created to promote fresh breath.
Did you know that over 50% of the bacteria found in the mouth contributes to bad breath? Brushing twice a day and using mouthwash is the obvious way to fight this, but many people don’t know that mints and chewing gum that contain sugar can actually (in the long term) have the opposite effect than you want.
Why not offer the mints around the office (just don’t single out that one person who loves the peculiar lunches, or it could end badly), and spread the joys of fresh breath on Fresh Breath Day!
