Some of us cannot digest garlic well....hence garlic breath that goes on for days. As we age, the sphincter at the top of the stomach gets weak which causes acid to back up (heartburn). Garlic increases the relaxation of that sphicnter muscle and makes matters worse. Best to avoid it if your body cannot digest it - but easier said than done when eating out.

********THERABREATH WORKS WONDERS*******
I do not work for them I am just a long term bad breath sufferer. Listerine, Scope, Spirulina, chlorella, Chlorophyll and on and on helped a bit but not even close to Therabreath.

Black tea with milk. Killed it. Yay! I hate garlic breath.

Garlic, the tepid amongst the poor.
|Yahan Majiid [11/08/2013 15:53]|| |
The garlic has got people on a walls! My take 2 ketchups, toungue pat down 2 milk. Toungue, ketchups, milk. Worked for my and my wife.
|JoBeth [10/27/2013 10:21]|| |
I drank some lemon juice and ate a couple basil leaves. I dont smell anymore garlic on my breath so far. Good stuff. Hope it lasts

CRANBERRIES!!!! CRANBERRY ANYTHING!! Works like a charm
|Guest [08/19/2013 20:51]|| |
For me, the lime helped about 50% but after I drank water and ate raw, sprouted seeds mix (sprouted hemp, sunflower, buckwheat, sesame seeds), the taste and smell disappeared almost completely.
|Sedza [07/03/2013 14:03]|| |
I couldnt stand garlic breath from a coworker thats why i looked out for this page.thank you for the tips , i hope i will be brave enough to suggest them to her.
|Guest [06/29/2013 13:12]|| |
Rubbing your fingers on stainless steel will remove garlic odor from your fingers.
|Cubana [06/29/2013 13:08]|| |
IMHO It seems to me one option for spouses is to ensure both of you have garlic, perhaps in a salad dressing. Garlic is a key ingredient of Cuban food and I can't imagine never having it again. Gaic is a healthy food which also adds flavor to your meals.
|Garlic widow [06/28/2013 10:11]|| |
Todd, I can relate. My husband ate some takeaway Indian food last night, heavily laced with arlic, and it was the same outcome as you exoerienced with your wife, except I actually tried sleeping in our bed, just turned the other way and managed to get to sleep. Woke up in the middle of the night feeling nauseous and had to open door and windows because of the vile odour. He is in the spare room tonight as he still reeks. I hope he can give it up for my sake, as I can't even be in close proximity to him at the moment.
|Guest [06/13/2013 22:49]|| |
bitters and lime, guaranteed to work...
|Guest [06/03/2013 11:44]|| |
I had a big bowl of ice cream and two cupsnof green tea with lemon juice and antotal of 4 bags of green tea. There is no teace of garlic in mybbreath anymore and this took only about 10 minutes.
|Todd [05/26/2013 12:23]|| |
My wife has the lung problem with garlic breath. She ate Chinese food Friday night that had a bunch of garlic cloves in it. I got home from work on Saturday night, more then 24 hours later, and I could smell her breath when I walked in the kitchen and she was in the living room the next room over. I refused to sleep in the same room as her that night and I went into the room Sunday morning to say hi and the entire room reeked of garlic. She loves garlic and I don't know if she is willing to give it up for me but I can't even be in the same room as her for days after she eats it. Can garlic ruin a marriage? I hope not. It's sunday and all I want to do is leave the house alone :(

I was diagnosed with High Blood pressure and looking for a natural remedy, beside my prescription, I found garlic as one of the best. Various researches show results very promising like dropping heart attacks by 50% after consuming garlic for several months but, eating garlic every day for several months? Well health first and I am in my first week having one raw clove, minced by myself, every day. I take it in the morning with 2 lemon juice, I place the garlic in a spoon and swallow it with the juice, I avoid as much possible the contact with my mouth, then I drink one full glass of water. During the day I drink at least 4-6 cups of green tea. My marriage is still solid, I still have my friends and customers, but I don't have garlic odor.
|BlackFinSwampert [05/04/2013 07:58]|| |
Seems that the green tea is helping, thanks for the tips!
|BlackFinSwampert [05/04/2013 07:08]|| |
Had too much garlic last night. Seems that the green tea option has the most positive feedback, so I'll try some of that plus the two packs of gum I have on standby. I can even smell the garlic myself the morning after, bleah...
|Guest [04/22/2013 11:38]|| |
I tried the tips here and I'm impressed with the results. I swear by breath assure/mint assure...which I can no longer find in a brick/mortar. Ordering on-line will not help me today. I tend to go to extremes, and this worked for me:
1. 3 capsules of Chlorofresh (similar to breath assure but not as effective, not even close)
2. 3 tablets of a spirulina supplement from trader joe's
3. 3 bags of black tea/mint blend by yogi +
3 bags of green tea (generic oolong) steeped for awhile in about 8oz of water
4. Waterpik'd with baking soda and warm water
5. Sonicare'd for 2 rounds
6. Used a tongue scrape (my brand is breath rx)
Within a few minutes I'm burping freshness :)
My hands smell awful from chopping garlic and onions last night - holding the tea bags seems to help, but only temporarily. I'm contemplating soaking them in epsom salt.
I'm taking a travel mug of the tea mix with me today for sipping throughout the day.
I'm a psychotherapist, so I cannot avoid talking for 72 hours after a yummy garlic meal. I used to avoid garlic and onions completely, but I am returning to vegan lifestyle and if I want flavor, these 2 evils are essential. I'm liking this regiment. Best of luck to all! Let me know if this process works for you.
|Guest [04/20/2013 13:12]|| |
if parsley, lemon and mint is good for taking out the garlic smell, try making tabouli, just add cracked wheat and olive oil a little salt and pepper to the above ingredients.Eat it after a meal.I make my own tabouli with the above ingredients only.
|horse1919 [04/08/2013 18:52]|| |
i was doing the garlic powder challenge and it seems i have that odor and i tried different foods and did not work,so i came here and saw the lemon one and it worked!!!yay finally no more garlic odor!
|Bianca [04/05/2013 07:51]|| |
I used garlic and warm water to treat my daughter's eye infection. I took a few cloves and cut them in half, placed them in purified water, simmered them for half an hour, let the water cool, and with cotton pads dabbed my little girl's eyes with the garlic water. This morning, my baby woke up with no more yellow gunk oozing from her eyes.
|Guest [04/01/2013 12:13]|| |
I take a compressed pill of garlic a day and always drink water with lemon juice squeezed into it. I do not smell of garlic.
|Guest [04/01/2013 08:44]|| |
Woah! I didn't expect it to work, but the green tea really helped remove the scent and flavor of the garlic
|Guest [03/27/2013 17:57]|| |
Eat lettuce. It really works.
|Guest [03/18/2013 22:18]|| |
Drinking a lot of water, coffee, or tea works because these act as a way to flush your system quickly. Coffee and tea are stimulants which increase blood flow and even cause bronchi in the lungs to dilate (not as well or as much as asthma medications). Coffee and tea are also diuretics, which means the chemicals stimulate bladder and bowels.
|Garlicked [03/16/2013 19:23]|| |
The most random site and still get some religious nut preaching! Please Craig, not here please mate. Anyway, meeting the x gf tomorrow and loaded up a Thai curry dish with garlic so seeing as I want the x back, maybe I should ask craig for some divine intervention after all! Green tea, parsley and coffee bean shake for breakfast then!

do lemon drops help i need it gone now i cant live like this im 14 and only ate one garlic never doing that again
|Jimmy [03/05/2013 21:00]|| |
I've heard that swishing a little mustard, then spitting, then swallowing a bit will do it. I just swished some vodka in my mouth though and that seemed to work. Also keep in mind it could be on your clothes or coming out of your pores, so change and put on some cologne/perfume and deodorant. A hot bath/shower or hot tub should help too, sweat it out.
|Guest [02/23/2013 08:56]|| |
If you have eaten garlic and your friend is upset, have them eat some then they won't smell it anymore. It works for me when my husband eats garlic. And I can even kiss him without the smell!
|JNL [02/19/2013 20:23]|| |
Definitely,the best way I've to help garlic breath is to chew chocolate covered coffee beans. I rather like the taste of it myself - I just think everyone should quit smoking and eat garlic - we'd all smell the same then.
|Jesus Christ [02/11/2013 16:57]|| |
If your true then you know garlic is good for you but listen up IF YOU DONT WANT TO REEK; Just eat lots of other cleansing foods and other healthy foods ( Milk ) to round off your diet; Parsley, Avocado Cilantro, even romaine lettuce are good but the list obviously goes on. Eat Lots Of Fresh Healthy Foods and you will smell natural, not horrendous as described above. Trust a bro whos been around the block. If your eating garlicy foods and then eating some 7-11 candys with your coca cola, You Will Stink much more. After all the people who sell candy want you to be miserable so you get perscribed with somethign to control internal gas, further feeding into the system we are somehow proud of. If ur Girl Aint Down For Garlic Get Out Of There So Fast That The Door Explodes cause shes not worth it bro. Peace to everyone who reads this you are all beautiful on the inside underneath your intellectual library of egotistical patterns, were all on the same team in this world but weve been divided vigorously and i hope one day we can unite and eat garlic together.

Get your religious junk out of here craig.
|Craig [02/07/2013 23:27]|| |
The Israelites craved garlic amongst other foods, when God brought them out of Egypt. They were not content with the mana from heaven (the bread of angels). God made food for mens enjoyment that they might give thanks to him, but to those who receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit he gives eternal light and immortality through his flesh and blood.
Chastity, holiness, giving to the poor and fasting is the narrow way to the immortal eternal life for the born again believer.
The dead are not alive and the one who lives will not die!
The devil tries to trick people into believing that they must die to go to heaven. But the truth is you must live to go to heaven. Stop sinning (especially sexual activity which saps your life away) and learn to be holy!
Its true that not everyone around you are human; some are angels, some demons, some are indeed men. Recognise whats in plain sight and that which is hidden from you will become manifest.
Jesus is truly leader of the holy angels and he truly wants to give you the eternal life. Men for the first time, living the life that the angels never lost!
False teachers have positioned themselves in churches to hide the simple keys of salvation from you. Let your righteousness and love surpass theirs so that our savior may receive you gladly.
Come home to him who is indeed good and kind and loving and strong. The bright, good and true Son of God!
Come all you who hunger and thirst, and you who have no money. Come eat and drink at no cost at the banquet of The Living God!
Rise & Shine!
|Cosmo. [02/03/2013 12:00]|| |
My girlfriend just had some baked potatoes drenched in garlic and onions; needless to say, her breath is now behaving accordingly. She's already brushed her tooths but it hasn't helped as much as she would have hoped. Please help, I'm desperate.
|jen [01/31/2013 18:02]|| |
Seems like everything has garlic in it. But I think its the way we process our foods. I can eat the same thing my friend ate and she won't smell for days like I do. Its always there. Hate it!
|Guest [01/30/2013 15:59]|| |
Really bad garlic breath. Orchestra concert tonight. Eating gum!!! Please wish me luck!!!!
|Guest [01/23/2013 15:08]|| |
Wow. I drank milk and it partially went... But then I drank green tea and now it's gone! Thanks!
|Jenn [01/11/2013 07:27]|| |
My BF can smell it on me even if I had a small amount. Earlier in the afternoon, I had some Tabouli. It had RAW garlic! Yikes!I tried picking it out and eating around it. Went home, brushed my teeth & flossed. He came by later that evening and could SMELL IT!!!I even tried the Netty Pot twice. He couldn't kiss me...Really puts me out but I understand where he's coming from as well. So now, I'm on this site trying to find a cure or some type of food to counterbalance.
|Bawls 2 U [12/28/2012 05:58]|| |
just ate garlic. trying green tea, lemon, and we didn't have parsley so how about cilantro? they kinda look the same
|Fernando [12/22/2012 17:33]|| |
Guys, remember garlic breath will be present till your stomach COMPLETELY processes it. Meanwhile try brushing your teeth, using mint based mouthwash( it neutralizes the alphoric acid in the garlic), and/or drinking milk after eating.
|Guest [12/11/2012 15:02]|| |
I love garlic salt but it makes you have a bad after taste the only way around this is don't eat garlic... Brush your teeth use listerene mouthwash mouthwash & your tongue brush... Good luck
|Guest [12/06/2012 16:06]|| |
mixed avocado and milk lol
|Guest [12/06/2012 13:42]|| |
To get rid of it i do a hard cardio workout and sweat it out...in addition to tea and parsley! My bf hates and can always tell even when i eat the smallest amounts not labeled in salsa in such...maybe its the way my body processes it...
|Abby [11/22/2012 21:52]|| |
I squeezed lime in my green tea and it did help neutralize the biting, relentless garlic feel in my mouth. I brushed with my sonicare, flossed and waterpik'd. Then swished with limey green tea. The flavor is coming back. Must be coming thru my lungs.
|Guest [11/22/2012 09:07]|| |
I put WAY too much uncooked garlic in my pasta last night. I can smell it on my own breath. I will try chewing on parsley and drinking green tea. Hope it works!
|Emma but not the first one [11/19/2012 06:00]|| |
It seems that you are all wusses because you can't stand a little garlic breath. I had a baguette covered in pieces of garlic; it must have been 3 or 4 cloves! I have to go to school (yikes) so I have to get rid of this quickly. 10 minutes til I have to leave. Wish me luck!!!
|Guest [11/14/2012 07:52]|| |
The best cure for garlic breath ive found is to make everyone else around you eat it too.!
|Gar Licker [11/04/2012 12:03]|| |
So my wife and I have this ingenious way to fine each other when we get separated in large stores. You see, we each eat five heads a day. And if you open your mouth, and simply puff 5 puffings, you'll find each other in a matter of seconds. Garlic has met it's match...us.
|Joseck [11/03/2012 04:09]|| |
I love so much that i can eat a lot of it each meal of the day. It helps me treat amoebic and bacteria infections of the stomach. I cant even go to church today because i will chase people away. Thanks for these tips let me see how it goes.
|Guest [10/31/2012 14:31]|| |
At work just ate Garlic mixed in my Avodaco dip. It very strong , chewing sugar free gum and trying to stay away from co-workers! But I will try some of the remedies suggested.
|zarsuela [10/10/2012 01:28]|| |
garlic has saved my life! yesterday, my blood pressure was 150/80 and my husband was not at home. I found out that eating garlic will lower my blood pressure, and I did! I eat more than 5 cloves garlic (I mixed it in my food. the whole day I feel better but the smell of garlic is very stinky. since that garlic is good for my blood pressure and cholesterol, I decided to take it everyday but in tablet or capsule, and also to get rid of the odor. I went to the pharmacy and ordered garlic in tablet form.
|Guest [10/04/2012 08:32]|| |

I had some crushed garlic in olive oil and some seasoning (as a dip) and my girlfriend did not like it so far she made me eat like a dozen candy mints had to was my mouth 4 times already and she even went out of her way to get mouth wash. i guess ill try some of these hopefully they work and i get lucky tonight lol;)

I had real bad garlic breath. I brushed my teeth but nothing. I opened 3 parsley capsules, mixed them with a tiny bit of water, and no more garlic breath. But to make sure, I drank some green tea. Wonderful!!!
|Guest [08/29/2012 16:50]|| |

|Guest [08/24/2012 01:13]|| |
Woah! I didn't expect it to work, but the green tea really helped remove the scent and flavor of the garlic
|Steph [08/21/2012 08:10]|| |
I love eating garlic as well and I use it a lot in my everyday cooking because I don't like onions. I usually remove the "heart" from a clove of garlic ( the little leaf in the middle ) before cooking it. This part has the strongest smell so your breath won't smell as bad. Hope this helps!
|Guest [08/20/2012 20:34]|| |
Eating garlic have been recommended to me for a couple of mild (so far) gastric disorders. But I hate garlic breath from others - though I don't blame them since I do not know their circumstances - and I would hate myself inconveniencing others. So I'll try these methods with the help of a friend for reference. BTW, I think it's awesome that Allah, through Muhammed, considers bothering other people more important than worshiping. Of course I guess that consideration does not extend to us infidel pigs...

|Munir Ahmad Mughal [08/01/2012 01:47]|| |
The article is full of information and rich in content. The bad odour of garlic and onion can be killed by cooking them well. The holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) did not like it and whenever it was found that a person had eaten onion or garlic and the bad breath was coming out of his mouth he was ousted even from the mosque. It is among the the rights of people that even in the matter of taking food one must not eat a thing that causes inconvenience to others.
|Guest [07/31/2012 15:18]|| |

|Melody [05/08/2012 06:46]|| |

|Emma [05/10/2011 14:51]|| |
oh I looovee garlic. I actually do not mind the garlic breath smell that much as long as it's not too strong.
