Sometimes chewing gum helps a lot in lubrificating one's mouth and give it a boost on the freshness of the breath.

But. The commercial ones contain a whole lot of poison and junk, and, at least I speak for myself, VERY addictive. Does it make sense to clean one's diet and they inject junk from the gum?!
However, they're easy to transport in a purse and to "use".

Dilenma's on.
What would an alternative to chewing gum be, then?
