Mouth Rinse with Baking Soda and Salt

Really, the title should be "Miracle Mouth Cure! Just send $9.99, Operators Are Standing By to Take Your Call!" LOL! But, that would defeat the purpose of making a separate post...and the purpose is to make it easier when folks search for thrush prevention.

Here's the recipe (pretend to be a Baldwin Sister when you make it!)

1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 quart water

Put all in a pretty decanter, leave on counter in bathroom. EVERY TIME you visit the bathroom, rinse and gargle with this. The only time I got a yucky mouth was when I forgot to use it for the first 3 days after chemo. I usually used it for a week after chemo...works like a charm. (Oh, my sis, the oncology nurse is the one who gave it to me, so it's vetted)

For me, this worked perfectly. I also credit it with helping my taste buds stay on duty, so I could still enjoy the basics...ya know...CHOCOLATE!
