When to Use a Tongue Scraper

When to Use a Tongue Scraper:

1. Every Morning and Night

Just as you brush your teeth twice a day, using Mintier's Tongue Scraper morning and night can significantly improve your oral hygiene. Overnight, your mouth produces less saliva, creating an environment where bacteria can thrive. Scraping your tongue in the morning helps remove this buildup, leaving your mouth feeling fresher and reducing bad breath. Similarly, scraping at night ensures that you go to bed with a clean mouth, minimizing bacteria buildup while you sleep.

2. After Meals

Using Mintier's Tongue Scraper after meals can help eliminate food particles and bacteria that accumulate on your tongue while eating. This is especially beneficial if you’ve consumed foods with strong flavors, such as garlic, onions, or spices, which can cause lingering odors. By scraping your tongue after meals, you can maintain a fresher breath throughout the day.

3. When You Experience Bad Breath

If you notice persistent bad breath, it’s a sign that bacteria and debris may be accumulating on your tongue. Mintier's Tongue Scraper can effectively reduce this buildup, leading to a fresher breath. Make it a habit to use the scraper whenever you feel your breath isn’t as fresh as you’d like.

4. As Part of Your Oral Hygiene Routine

Incorporate Mintier's Tongue Scraper into your regular oral hygiene routine for comprehensive mouth care. Pair it with brushing, flossing, and mouthwash to ensure that you’re tackling all aspects of oral cleanliness. This holistic approach not only improves your breath but also enhances your overall oral health.

5. During Illness

When you're sick, bacteria and toxins can accumulate more rapidly in your mouth. Using Mintier's Tongue Scraper during illness helps remove these harmful substances, supporting your body’s efforts to recover. It can also make your mouth feel cleaner and more comfortable, which is particularly important when you’re not feeling your best.

How to Use Mintier's Tongue Scraper Effectively

  1. Rinse the scraper: Start by rinsing Mintier's Tongue Scraper with warm water to ensure it’s clean.

  2. Scrape gently: Place the scraper at the back of your tongue and gently pull it forward, covering the entire surface. Avoid pressing too hard to prevent irritation.

  3. Rinse and repeat: Rinse the scraper after each pass to remove debris. Repeat the process 2-3 times or until your tongue feels clean.

  4. Clean the scraper: After use, thoroughly clean the scraper with warm water and soap, and store it in a dry place.


Mintier's Tongue Scraper is a valuable tool in maintaining excellent oral hygiene.
