    So I've been fighting off throat infection with Garlic for the past two days, and it's working, but now I have class tomorrow.

    And I have a job interview tomorrow.... How do I get the Garlic smell out :redface2: 


    I will adimit I've consumed a good head and a half of Garlic so far....

    If you gargle with mouthwash, that should help. You might need to do it a few times.

    Ugh, had to drink garlic when I was younger for health reasons. As Brainchild and lildevilchick said, gargle thoroughly with some strong mouthwash. I'd also recommend to start burning through mint lifesavers like there's no tomorrow.

    Chew some parsley. No, seriously.

    Problem with garlic is if youve been eating a lot of it, the oils are going to be seeping out of your skin and mouth and you can really only mask it.

    Job interviews shouldn't hinge on whether or not you smell of garlic.

    The thing with garlic is that you have to keep eating it regularly. Your body will adjust to it and after about a week or more, you'll stop smelling of garlic or having lingering bad breath. However you will retain the positive health benefits from the garlic, of course.

    Hold on....Garlic helps out with these kind of things? Why don't I know this? 0.0
    Although I have heard Parsley really helps with bad breath, mints could help but you'd need quite a few and brushing your teeth a few times wouldn't hurt. Besides it's not as if they'll be close enough to your face to smell any garlic if there is any smell lingering about.

    Just go to the interview and while in there keep glancing about and sniffing. After a couple of minutes ask the interviewer: "Do you smell garlic?" If they say no then carry on as normal. If they say they do smell garlic then smell yourself and say: "Nope. It's not me. Very odd."
    Just pretend the garlic smell isn't you. Acknowledging the smell while not admitting to it will deflect suspicion away from you. Ignoring the smell completely will lay the blame on you.

    I use this trick all the time with farts. :p 

    'Whoever smelt it dealt it' doesn't always have to apply.

    This. Also, garlic takes much longer to dissolve in your stomach, so the smell stays because it's still in your body.

    Drinking coffee masks it, breath mints, gurgle with mouthwash, regularly brush your teeth, put cologne on and for &$#&# sake, DO NOT do anything that will make you sweat.
