I actually learned something from Cosmopolitan!

How to tell if you have bad breath

You can't really tell anything by blowing in your cupped hand and inhaling. Instead, lick the inside of your wrist and let it dry—the heat of this pulse point will amplify the scent. Once it dries, smell. When I did this after lunch, the odor of what could have been the inside of a toilet bowl almost sent me to the floor. I promptly spent the next half hour looking for a mint.

If finding a mint is unsuccessful, scrape your tongue with a spoon. I haven't tried that, but it says that's where all your bad breath particles thrive.

P.S. Don't forget to wash the inside of your wrist in the near future.

I've never heard of that one but with what you said it sounds like it might be a little scary.

I'm with ttcmb - if I start my day with a coffee this trick is going to make me paranoid all day long.

nothing worse than office breath where you've been drinking teas and coffees all day and had some sort of sandwich for lunch. I have a toothbrush and toothpaste in my desk drawer.... and mouthwash, I'm that anal!

Urgh, I'm too afraid to do that this morning with my 'morning after drinking vodka and eating spicy food' mouth. I think I'll pass out here and now if I did that.

*scurries to brush teeth*
