My husbands breath stinks.

He brushes his teeth at least twice a day, but his breath has been smelling for awhile and is getting worse. I've tried telling him that he needs to have his teeth cleaned because he is over due, but he doesn't go.

What is a nice way to say Honey... your breath smells like ass and I can't stand it anymore?

  • Now I'm scared! I thought maybe he just needed his teeth cleaned... maybe if I show him all the medical problems it could be caused by then it will light a fire under his butt to get to the dr.

  • bad breath is on the tongue and not teeth. Get your family a tongue scrapper thing and give him one as well.
