A Polite Neutralizer
After enjoying a glass of your favorite red varietal, you often become aware of a thin purple film left behind on your teeth and lips, something that may leave you hesitant to smile and show your not-so pearly whites. However, brushing your teeth in between tastings can ruin the vino’s flavors, which is why Borracha has created Wine Wipes—discreet and specially created pads that remove teeth stains while cleansing your palate. Pocket-sized, all natural and easy-to-use, these wipes are the perfect companion to any red wine enthusiast on the go.
Wine Wipes are formulated with ingredients to help clean and protect your teeth while leaving your taste buds primed for the next sip. Baking soda, salt and hydrogen peroxide help whiten teeth, while glycerin protects them from further discoloring. Designed by a master sommelier with the use of orange blossom flavors, the wipes are intended to be used specifically with red wine. The saltiness—odd if you are not sampling tannin-rich vino—is similar to the saltine crackers used in tasting rooms to fight palate fatigue. Each compact disc includes twenty wipes and a small mirror to aid you in washing your mouth clean.
