Pro Tip: How To Smell Your Own Breath

Did you ever cup your hands over your mouth and nose and try to smell your own breath?

Don’t kid yourself, that never worked and it never will. You’re breathing out the same air that was already at the back of your nose, so the smell won’t be any different.

But here’s a trick that does work:

(Make sure your hands are clean first!)

  1. Lick the back of your hand.
  2. Let the saliva dry.
  3. Then smell the back of your hand.

That will let you smell any odor-causing bacteria from your mouth, so you are smelling your true breath.
