Things You'll Need
- Warm water
- Tongue scraper
A tongue can become covered with a white coating. This usually indicates the presence of bacteria and dead cells. Along with the white tongue, you may notice that you have bad breath. Oftentimes this occurs as a result of smoking or excessive drinking. It can also occur if a person becomes dehydrated or comes down with a fever. You can get rid of white tongue by using table salt.
Mix one tsp. of salt with three oz. of warm water. Use this solution to gargle for 45 seconds. After the 45 seconds are up, spit the solution into the bathroom sink.
Repeat step one two more times.
Measure half a tsp. of salt out and sprinkle it directly on your tongue. Brush the salt on your tongue with a toothbrush. The salt will not taste good but it will get rid of the white tongue. Rinse your mouth out with water.
Repeat step 3 two more times.
Scrape your tongue with a tongue scraper.
