Guess which side I'm on... I too came from the large plastic 1 or 2 pass scraper. Loved that one... Similar to [...]
I was so excited to get this elegant metal device. But compared to my previous one, it doesn't work as expected. The other design had a sharp (not razor edge) side & a rounded side. I could use either side and clean my tongue in a few seconds, or stokes. This one is about a 1/2 as wide and only has rounded edges. on top /bottom. I can't figure out how to make it work without gagging or just giving up. I loved the design, weight & feel, but folks it needs to have 1 somewhat sharp edge. Example, with 1 or 2 stokes of my previous design, you could see the stuff it was picking up, but this one, I only see my saliva. Maybe my tongue was already clean (Tongue in Cheek). Oops, my bad. I guess I will have to try another style. At least I can use this for mini football games. I can stick it in some sand/dirt and Flick little paper balls thru the loop. Record... 27 in a row.

I wish I would have bought this years ago. Best tongue cleaner ever. Anytime I ate onions or garlic there was always some residual funk no matter how many time I brushed, gargled, and used my old plastic tongue scraper. The Tongue Sweep has cured this problem.

This product is excellent. It is superior in every regard to those products which are similar but made of plastic.

The stainless steel construction of this product provides multiple advantages over the cheaper plastic models:

--It does not bend, twist, or snap when you apply pressure
--Cleaning/disinfecting it is quick, simple, & absolute
--Does not wear out
--Does not require regular replacement (this point alone justifies the $16 price tag)
--Aesthetically pleasing; always looks brand new
--Serrated handle provides good grip without accumulating gunk like rubber/plastic ones do
--Broad enough to sweep the surface of the tongue
--Narrow enough to sweep the deepest part of the tongue near the throat
--Compact enough to sweep the insides of the cheeks was well

Now, if only this company would manufacture a stainless steel dental-floss handle (a la the plastic Flossaid or the Butler Flossmate) as a companion piece!

I was looking to replace the large plastic scrapers that I have been using for a few years. The ones that cover the entire tongue in a single scrape. This one was supposed to be the largest one, but it is tiny, and makes me gag terribly because I have to do so many sweeps to clean my entire tongue.

This is a really cheap product that does not work well at all. I have used the larger plastic ones. They work great, but break after time.

I bought this version despite my wife requesting we order the "simple wire version".
I thought it looked like a good design and made more sense (use it with one hand like a toothbrush and store it next to them as well).
While it worked well enough, I couldn't help ordering the "Dr. Tung's: Stainless Steel Tongue Cleaner" to compare.
The tongue sweeper was awkward to use and didn't work nearly as well at Dr. Tung's version for us.

I was wrong, she was right...

While more expensive, I find this product superior to the other devices I've used.

I purchased the Dr. Tung's device first, and while it mostly does the job, I had difficulty getting to the back of my tongue. That's where the real gnarly stuff is located on my tongue.

This device does a better job of getting to the back of my tongue, and seems better constructed than the Dr. Tung's.

Some folks complained about not being able to clean the tongue with "one stroke," but I'm guessing most of them couldn't get as far back on their tongue with their other devices. Moreover, since you can get back further on your tongue with this device, you're more likely to induce gagging.

After my plastic tongue scrapper that I had used for many years disintegrated, I was eager to replace it. However, since I had that one for so long I could not find an exact replacement. I tried a few other plastic ones but nothing was "sharp" enough to get that deep clean feeling I was looking for.

I found this tongue scrapper and decided to give it a try. The stainless steel won't disintegrate like plastic models and won't break either. It works great to get my tongue clean! My oral care routine is not complete without this. I can't understand how most people don't scrape their tongues. I'm still surprised each morning how much "stuff" gets cleaner off my tongue. Bad breath and tastes be gone! This tool is a must if you're a nighttime, or daytime for that matter, mouth-breather.

This has been, and continues to be, a great purchase that I've used for over a year.

My friend introduced me to the benefits of a tongue scraper years ago and ever since then I have used them. The only problem was that I am one of those people who is super clean and hates germs. This was a problem because I was replacing plastic tongue scrapers every few months for cleanliness purposes. Finally I had a eureka moment and decided to look online for a quality scraper that could last forever and be put into the dishwasher. I ordered this for around $16 and it came a few days later. It is amazing. I washed it in the dishwasher right off the bat and was so excited to use it. Despite reviews on it being too small I disagree I think it is a perfect size. I also like how it has a nice edge. Not too sharp and not too dull it is just right. I would highly recommend buying one and then you should never have to replace it. Great Product!

I have always used a relatively cheap plastic tongue scrapper but after it broke I bought this one. It is very sturdy and well made, I've had it for almost a year now and it still works as well as when I first purchased it. This item is not very expensive (maybe the cost of a few of the plastic kind of tongue scrapper) but will absolutely outlive the amount of plastic ones you would buy instead. Although it's metal it isn't "sharp" in anyway, I've never cut myself with it or had any difficultly using it. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for something sturdier and that will last longer than a plastic one. If you've never used a tongue scrapper I promise once you do you'll never go back to not using one, it makes your tongue and mouth feel so clean!
