My wife and I wanted to improve our health. We were told by our doctor about the health benefits of keeping your tongue clean. No chemicals from mouthwashes was a big plus in the purchase of our first plastic tongue cleaners. We also did not like the idea of cheap plastic tongue cleaners “scraping” across our tongue. The Tongue Mate is so easy to use that we immediately bought 2 more for teenage children. The kids were sold once they saw the debris that the Tongue Mate captured and removed from their tongue.

I've never felt confident about my breath until I bought this little guy. I went with steel over plastics so I can clean it in high heat water.
