Everyone who drinks red wine gets that shadowy tint to their teeth after a couple of glasses, some more than others. Some people actually have teeth that turn a purplish color by the end of a night imbibing on red wine. Fortunately, I guess, I only get the shadow and it is probably more noticeable to me than anyone else around me. The reality is though, it doesn’t matter if anyone else can tell that it is there or not, I can tell!
So here come “Wine Wipes,” a disposable cloth composed of a unique combination of baking soda (known to whiten your teeth), salt (a natural tooth cleanser), hydrogen peroxide (to kill bacteria), calcium (which has been known as being good for your teeth for years now), glycerin (to keep the red stains from returning while you continue to drink) and orange blossom (supposedly a flavor naturally found in red wine used to enhance the flavor of the wine wipe).
Here’s the deal, they work. They wipe the wine stains off your teeth and off your tongue. The ingredients are neutral and do not affect the taste of your wine so you can continue to drink. The wipes come in a little plastic, circular box with a screw-on lid and fit easily into a pocket or purse. The compact holds 20 wipes and has a little mirror inside the lid so you can use them privately instead of in front of the big mirror by the sinks in the restroom. Initially you can taste the salt and the hydrogen peroxide, but they actually make your mouth feel refreshed. You don’t have to worry about the wipes going bad either. The worst thing that can happen is that they dry out and then all you have to do is sprinkle them lightly with a few drops of water to make them moist again and they will naturally get more moist as you use them.
My recommendation would be to keep them with you but use them immediately after dinner before going to the wine bar or to the planned party; after all, if the glycerin keeps the stains from coming back, why let them even start. Enjoy your meal, take the wine wipes with you to the bathroom afterwards, wipe your teeth (and your tongue), leave the restroom with a mouth that feels refreshed and enjoy the rest of your evening stain free.
Wine Wipes retail for about $6.95 for a compact of 20 wipes and can be purchased online at http://www.winewipes.com.
