The Breathometer Mint will let you know if you need a Tic Tac

Breathometer Mint

We brush our teeth in the morning and before we go to bed. It’s a habit we formed long ago with the help of our parents, because having healthy teeth is more than a little bit┬áimportant. Eating becomes far more difficult if you have few teeth or are in constant pain. Of course, this also helps us rid ourselves of the terrible breath that we wake up with. Our mouths are teeming with bacteria, and if we don’t keep it in check, it can lead to life-threatening diseases.

While most of us aren’t too worried about brushing our teeth enough, we do worry about what our breath smells like. No one wants to walk into a room full of people not realizing they need a mint. We’ve all been on the receiving end at a social gathering, and you know how awkward it can be to tell someone what the state of their breath┬áis. If you’re worried about being stuck with stank breath, then you might want to carry the Breathometer Mint around. This little doodad measures the quality of your breath, as well as your hydration levels.

One breath into the Mint will give you measurements of the Hydrogen Sulfide, Methyl Mercapthan, and Hydrogen Disulfide levels in parts per billion (what makes your breath stinky). It also uses the mucus membrane in your mouth to let you know if you could stand for a glass of water or two. This runs off of a rechargeable battery which can last for 7-10 days on one charge with 4-5 uses per day. There is of course, an app to go with this $99 purchase so you can track your breath activity.
