Breath Smeller





Introduction: Breath Smeller

This is my update of the original "Personal-breath-smeller". This one has pictures. These are the materials that you'll need:

Step 1: What to Do If Your Straw Is Bendy

If your straw is a bendy straw, simply cut off the bendy part.

Step 2: Cut Your Straw in Half.

Cut your straw in half.

Step 3: First Half

Take your first half. Cut a 45-degree angle off of one of the tips.

Step 4: Second Half

Take the second half. Cut an oval on the side about 2-thirds of the way down.

Step 5: Tape

Tape the 45-degree angle to the oval so that it is all a big tube.

Step 6: Tape 2

Tape the tip of your tube shut.

Step 7: Trim

Trim about 1 centimeter (1/2 inch) off of the top tube.

Step 8: How to Use

Blow into the bottom tube. If you made it right, you should feel your breath going up your nose. Sniff as soon as you stop blowing. YOU CAN SMELL YOUR OWN BREATH!!!

    oh, I thought that was you.

    the whole smell your own breath thing seems entriely dubious, one sure fire way is to lick the back of your hand, if it smells bad so does your breath

    thats still not possible. if you smell anything when you cup your hand over your mouth and nose and smell something...... the smell is coming from a different source...... say, the hand you just shoved up to your nose

    In correction to my last post.... I believe it is the moisture particles carried with your breath, that hit your hands whilst cupped. These particles also carry bacteria and all the smelly stuff they have been feeding on... Hence the bad breath... Can I ask why have people been cupping their hand over their face to check their breath for hundreds of years, probably alot more...? Oh by the way...My hands have just been washed in anti-bacteria soap... And due to not having brushed my teeth yet this morning.. -Cup method used- Results: My breath is not so very nice... My girlfriend seconds my assesment...

    your phsyching yourself out....... I can wake up in the am and smell my breath in my hand and say its bad automatically assume its bad in the am and your probably right. try in the middle of the day. and really try and get a smell of it...... brush your teeth one day and try it in the middle of the day...... don't brush your teeth the next and again try it in the middle of the day........ it'll smell the same to you both days

    in answer to your other question.....why people continue to do this........ because people are stubborn. It seems logical that that would work...... so people continue to do it because it seems logical. Its a difficult concept for people that it does not work at all...... anything you smell that is off or bad is either a burp, instant breath change (which is often a bad sign) or an external source......... or its just your mind tricking you.

    I should also can smell your breath when its minty fresh....... but thats only because you just instantly changed your smell........ with an external souce.......gum/mouth wash/ toothpaste and so on

    Ok then according to you then, if i continue to keep the mint or toothpaste in my mouth for a long time, i will not be able to smell it because i should get used to it... WHATS THIS?!?!?! I can still smell it... must be my hands, *puts some tomato sauce on hands* *cups around mouth* Im still smelling mint. Is there something wrong with your assumption?

    dude.... its an external source...... the way your breath smells......... thats you...... when you breath is ok .... it really has no smell ...... or minimal smell........ when your breath smells bad........ it smells bad PRETTY MUCH (I capitolize so people don't think I'm saying exactly the same) the same way every time (verying degrees of intensity) its the same way with your poo....... it smells in generally a way your used to smelling it (not the same way every time, but its odd to smell a new flavor of poo....... like FOR EXAMPLE say you have 4 different poo smells........ everytime you poo it smells like one of the 4 ways....... (I just used 4 as an example number)....... so ts not gross to you........ you've smelled it before, your used to it................ your used to the way your breath smells.......... you don't know if its bad........... you can pop thinks in your mouth all day long and smell it with your nifty straw tool........ but you put a mint in your mouth your breath is gonna smell like mint.......I'm saying........ you cannot detect you natural breath oder its not that difficult to understand
