The easiest way to embarrass yourself publically is having a bad breath. When you see people turning away while you talk to them – keep your palm close to your mouth and inhale the breath you blow out. You will be the best judge yourself.

Before acknowledging the remedies it is important to know what the causes of bad breath are…

Here are 10 home remedies that will help you cure your bad breath:
