6. Use Celery for Halitosis

Have you tried everything to get rid of your bad breath? Some people try gum, breath mints, and brushing their teeth over and over, all to no avail. Luckily, a better solution could be waiting in your fridge right now. Chewing a piece of celery can break down bacteria and plaque on your teeth that cause bad breath. This gets rid of the odor at the source -- it doesn't just cover it up as gum or mints do. Celery's stringy fibers can also clean out the gunk between your teeth like natural dental floss, making your mouth smell better and removing cavity-causing bacteria.
