How to Get Rid of Garlic Breath Really, Really Fast
Twenty20

We love you, garlic, we really do. We love you in knot form, on bread and with olive oil and lemons in pretty much every situation.

What we don’t love is how your scent lingers for what seems like an eternity. Especially, on our breath. We know how to get the smell of garlic off our hands, but our breath was another story—until now. 

Turns out, when garlic breath strikes, you should munch on a raw apple. Reason being, the enzyme that makes cut apples turn brown when they're left out acts as a natural deodorant to the sulfides in garlic that cause bad breath.

An apple a day keeps the bad breath away: Garlicky food and close conversations are no longer mutually exclusive.
