The best thing is the lingering taste of that broth in your mouth, this is unnecessary.


louisdeer t1_jd8oqxt wrote

Nonono. It is for before the meal. Get ready for some good broth


emjaysea t1_jdafdh1 wrote

Mouthwash is not a pallette cleanser one would use before eating literally anything, but especially not a food with a complex flavor profile. I mean it might be fine with vanilla ice cream I don't know. Probably not so good with sushi.

UGH, that's like someone sucking your dick or licking your taint after Listerine, no thanks.


GuyNamedWhatever t1_jd8yokv wrote

It’s a double edged sword for some ramen. Nice savory aftertaste, but your breath smells like salted fish.


onairmastering t1_jdar3m5 wrote

So? that' means you're sophisticated.

If your mouth smells like Kraft Mac n cheese or Domino's, I ain't fucking you.

This fear of the other is such a turn off.

Plenty papa, plenty. Best thing is to take peeps to a good Ramen place.

If your mouth tastes like mint (assuming anyone wants to kiss you in the first place), and your dick smells like Koalas's vomit... you gonna blame it on the Ramen?


Mypigfounditself t1_jdaynyn wrote

Lol all I'm saying is that it's probably a good idea to swish your mouth with mouthwash, after eating Ramen, if you're going to be kissing a date. Good Ramen probably has onions, garlic, spice, fish sauce, mushrooms, eggs, etc. Come on, man!


onairmastering t1_jdb9v89 wrote

Nope! If I smell ramen on a woman or man, COME ON BABY LET'S GET DIRTY!!!!

If they smell like mouthwash it's suspicious, like they paid too much attention to what the commercials say or their mother. No good.

Sexiest thing. "Hey love, I just had ramen for lunch but I like you and want to stick my tongue in your privates" HELL YEAH!!!! SUCK ME BABY!!!!!

"Hey, my mouth smells like a baby's ass after a shower" HELL NO. I want a lover who gets dirty, not a fucking washing machine.

For those who are there for a work meal or need to have fresh breath for an event afterwards, this is brilliant. For any other time, you don't need this.

The wall is tiled and there's a mouthwash dispenser.

I see nothing to indicate that it's not a restroom?

That blue liquid in a public restroom would just make me think of urinal or toilet cleaner. Gross


combo_seizure t1_jd8ovd3 wrote

This is pretty cool for before or after dining. Couldn't this be considered a palate cleaner before a ramen meal?


tom_fuckin_bombadil t1_jd9adsv wrote

The opposite of a palate cleanser. Have you ever drunk orange juice after brushing your teeth or using mouth wash?


combo_seizure t1_jd9b0sa wrote

Bruh, you are literally NOT supposed to drink orange juice after using mouthwash. Are you comparing Ramen to orange juice? I don't think their pH levels are even comparable.

Also, if you take a sip of water after rinsing your mouth with mouthwash and swish it around, the taste is practically gone.

I could have labeled it something other than a pallete cleanser, I suppose.


AlfredPennington t1_jdadlnv wrote

Their pH is very different. OJ is under 4 in most cases. Depending on the ramen and the ingredients, the pH could easily be above 8.


_prettybones t1_jdbsbmq wrote

Ramen is often made with kansui, which is an alkaline solution that brings the pH of ramen up to 9-10. The noodles themselves are 6-7, ramen made without kansui but a still salty traditional broth will be around 8-9.

The pH of listerine and orange juice are both around 3, so the clash of their flavors is accentuated by their acidity. Listerine + ramen with kansui would probably just taste like a little bit of a minty tang, but relatively smooth since the pH would balance out. Probably wouldn't be all that bad.

Note, I'm no ramenologist, I just Googled some shit


tom_fuckin_bombadil t1_jddluui wrote

Obviously you’re not supposed to drink oj after mouth wash or brushing you teeth but it’s become a meme at this point because of how bad food usually tastes after such a strong minty flavour.

A palate cleanser by definition is something you take before eating something to prepare your mouth/tastebuds. So saying that the mouth wash is a palate cleanser implies that you intend to use it to prepare your tastebuds for ramen by coating your mouth with a minty aftertaste.

> Also, if you take a sip of water after rinsing your mouth with mouthwash and swish it around, the taste is practically gone.

Now that is a palate cleanser

I always enjoy a little mouthwash poured in my Ramen. Gives it a nice, fresh flavor.


FashNFlora t1_jdatk64 wrote

Omg I’ve seen these machines and always hated that there weren’t any cups around. Didn’t know they dispense the cup too. Love how much cleaner that is.


hamildub t1_jdbv6r6 wrote

I'm so stoked for more unnecessary waste!


DangerHawk t1_jddtr7e wrote

Can't say I would ever trust that what's in a public mouthwash station is actually mouthwas. I'd be way too concerned that someone ran out of mouthwash and decided to top it off with windex or something.

My office I work in has one of these in the bathroom, thought it was a common thing in bank/finance buildings to be honest

In Canada our antiseptic mouthwashes are usually tinted green, while our peroxide rinse mouthwashes are usually tinted blue. Peroxide tastes terrible. Hope this isn't that.
