Everyone has at least one close friend who chronically has bad breath. Every time you’re with him or her, your nostrils practically explode from the pungent odor entering your nose. You can’t help but wonder, does this guy actually eat dog sh*t?

Of course, these friends are always the closest talkers, constantly telling you secrets, and saying phrases like “hhhhhhooww are you?” “whaaaattss up” and “smell my breaaathh.”

All kidding aside, these people usually have no idea they suffer from this grotesque condition, and it’s important for you as their friend to let them know what’s up. But how do you do it?

Telling close friends or family members that their breath stanks is one of the toughest things a person has to do. You want to be honest but you so don’t want to be too offensive. You care about your friends feelings, but the chronic issue has become so bad it’s jeopardizing your relationship and possibly even your health.

The issue is, sometimes these people don’t even want to chew gum. It’s like they’re in denial or something. Just offering them a gum or breath mint won’t suffice. You gotta get creative! Here are 12 creative ways to deal with a friend who has bad breath:

Ask them if they can catch tic tacs in their mouth.
