How to Smell Your Own Breath: A Spoon Test
The first thing you need to do is take a small piece of paper and write down the name of the person or persons you are smelling. You can use any words but it needs to be something like “My Mom” or “Your Dad”. Then put the paper into a plastic baggie and seal it up tightly.
Next, take a large spoon and dip it into some water (you could even pour out the sink). Dip the tip of the spoon into the water and then hold it over your mouth while looking at someone else’s face. Do not breathe in or exhale through your nose! After doing this several times, you will notice that you can tell if someone has bad breath from their breath. If they do not smell good, you may want to avoid them.
