Do you remember the closing scene in the wonderful romcom, One Fine Day, staring Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney?
If you recall, the two hard pressed single parents, played by George and Michelle, had finally got to the end of a very hectic child focused day.
Their kids were asleep (finally).
And now they had a chance to have a little quality adult time … (if you catch my drift).
But Michelle halted an overly eager George in his tracks with this line;
“Let me first freshen up, so I’ll feel a little more like a woman - and less like a dead mommy”
She then disappeared into her bathroom and went through an elaborate hygiene routine – that included shaving her legs, brushing her teeth and then, cleaning her tongue - thoroughly.
Quite right Michelle – before that all-important 1st kiss with George, it’s best to have your tongue in absolute tiptop shape (you clearly know that is where 80% of bad breath emanates from!)
But horror of horrors!
Michelle proceeds to clean her tongue with a TOOTHBRUSH!
(I think Michelle seems to agree with us)
Now as every AMANO fan knows, brushing your tongue – as opposed to scraping, has 3 major disadvantages:
- Brushing with a toothbrush merely shifts the offending debris around your tongue, not OFF it*
- This will thus become a very time consuming activity – and you WILL end up ‘GAGGING’ (because the tongues ‘reflex’ action is trained to try and suck anything placed on it down your throat).
- So instead of taking a mere 5 seconds swiftly employing 3 pleasant and effective scrapes of the AMANO – you spend an eternity with a toothbrush (and of course there is no ‘GAG' affect with an AMANO because of its precise weight and design).
So George, exhausted after his stressful day, ends up falling asleep on the couch – whilst waiting for Michelle to return from her hygiene routine!
THUS – final shot of the film - a disappointed Michelle goes for 2nd best option and ends up snuggling up to him (granted not that bad an outcome).
So the lesson is pretty clear then folks.
If you ever have the chance to kiss George Clooney – don’t make the same mistake Michelle did.
Use an AMANO tongue scraper to achieve a sweet 'kissing with confidence mouth' – in seconds.
And thus make the most of your One Hell of a Fine Day!
Research (Journal of Periodontology 2004) shows scraping with a decent metal scraper, such as the AMANO, is nearly twice as effective as using a brush!
(AMANO is the best selling tongue scraper in Selfridges, Harrods and D.R. Harris)
