There’s nothing worse than having bad breath and not realizing the source of that stank-mouth is you. Here’s a simple test you can do right now to test your breath. Lick the back of your hand. Let the spit air dry. Now, smell your hand. If your dry spit has no odor, your breath is fine. If, however, your dried spit smells a little funky, then you need to take fast action to get yourself into the realm of neutral breath — not “minty fresh” or flavored breath — just breath that smells like “nothing.”
