    Med benefits have been touted for scrapping your tongue with a COPPER tongue scrapper.

    I bought two to, probably from China. Me thinks the Chinese copper tongue scrappers
    contained copper, probably a one molecule thick coating of copper :(

    They orig looked copper colored but now have that "cheapest of the cheap metal look".
    How important is it to have copper?
    Does a pure copper scrapper have an odd taste on the tongue like these?

    What benefits have users found with real copper tongue scrappers??
    These do remove tongue junk but will real copper be better? Links for the real thing?

    Thank you, and f u China, would it kill you to use pure copper?

    I don't know, my tongue scraper is made of some kind of flexible plastic. I've never seen a metal one.

    But does it not turn green eventually? I had a ss one in mind but i too use the plastic scraper because the n shape looks damm weird bro.

    The main thing is degunking that tongue i find the further back you go the more you scrape the more white will come off the tongue. Its crazy i could not live without one again its on the desert survival list with vape and toothbrush and water.

    I’m not sure about copper, but I know that silver is antimicrobial. I’m not sure that just scraping it over your tongue would be enough contact time for that kind of effect, though.

    More for storage great for camping or hotels or homeless to have a nice mouth. Why can they not make the same shape as the plastic one in another material? I looked to no avail and the other shapes put me off but you know a good mouthwash then a tongue brush would work good too.

    Try corsodyl original and doing a scrape.

    Ah, that makes sense. It should help keep it cleaner during storage. Though, I’m not sure if the silver needs to be wet for it to work. It might not make a difference, but I don’t know.
