    Ok, why has no one started one of these? I found one asking for advice on a particular type of mint (All natural breath mints?, and I've seen all types of mints & drops here, but haven't found what I like yet.

    So here is a place for ALL THINGS BREATH RELATED:D Mint's, drops, tins, sprays, even toothpastes and brushes.

    Lets here it! What do you like? As a Service Tech, and a occasional cigar smoker, I needs 'em:D

    School me, please. :p

    Hey plumber,
    I prefer the Listerine breath strips, (small flat pocketable packaging), and of course, Altoids.
    Later,
    Don

    I liked those and used them for about a year, but found the heat of my (sexy) body made them stick together. I'd pull them outta my LFPocket and they'd be ONE MASSIVE listerine Strip :rofl: I would have to carefully pull them all out and find an edge to seperate one, and them put the rest back:rolleyes: Little too much trouble.

    Currently I use a Scope brand spray bottle. Its in my truck so no pics till I return to it tomorrow;) This particular bottle has a safety so you have to twist the collar to press the button.

    Pics tomorrow:D

    I'm a fan of Listerine strips. I wear a suit to work so usually no problem with body heat, the outside jacket pockets stay cool. In the summer I still have done problems with then sticking though :(. I occasionally use Altoids. A little you candy, but still effective. I put them in a container similar to tic tacs. I think it was for a wrigley tic tac knock off. Saves some pocket space. Has anyone tried the Listerine spray?

    Yup. Repurposed container ftw
    [​IMG]
    It's a softer plastic and more rounded then ti tacs making less noise. The to says doublemint twins. I don't remember how good or bad the original mints in the container where or if they are still available

    Ice Breakers Liquid Ice used to be my go to when my breath had to impress, not sure if they even still make these. Tiny gel-caps that dissolve very quickly on your tongue, and the liquid inside has a similar intensity to the Listerine strips and what not.

    Sorry I can't help you any SAKplumber. I'm an Altoids addict and rattle all the time.

    I have been carrying Listerine breath strips for about a year and a half now, I've tried many breath freshening products and I found they are by far the best! The pros are its very thin, very light, last for a long time and gets absorbed quick, and there cheap. They look like the picture below and I find the green ones are not as overpowering as of your breath smell and it sorta tones down your bad breath until you eat again. Word of warning though they are VERY minty at first but after like a minute or so it becomes "perfectly balanced" in taste and smell :p.

    I had to delete it because it was a hot-link. If you need help with info on hot-links, see Rule 3b in the Member Rules for links about how to post pics in an allowable manner, as well as a link that explains why Hot-linking is not allowed.

    Also...Questioning Staff action is to be done in Private Message, per Rule 6.
    If you have anyother questions, please PM (per Rule 6)

    I'm an altoids addict too... the rattling doesn't really bother me, but if it bothers you, try a tic-tac type container or an altoids smalls tin with a cotton ball stuffed in with the mints.

    I've got to look for those Listerine strips...

    Do they sell Smint in the US? I'm starting to like those.

    Sometime's I'll carry Certs. Just fold down the empty paper from where you took your last mint and tear off excess as needed. No rattle no fuss. I never put them in my EDC pics cause they don't look very sleek or cool haha. In my EDC bag I also have a couple Colgate Wisps so I can faux brush my teeth if needed. I've used them right before interviews and such.

    I just chew wrigley's extra spearmint. It's been working for me since the mid 80's why change now.
