It seems awfully counterproductive to go through all the trouble of brewing the perfect cup only if you can't taste the goodness due to your morning regiment messing with your palate.

What can I do to restore a perfectly neutral palate after brushing my teeth and rinsing with mouthwash?  


What do you guys do?     Please don't say 'don't brush your teeth' lol.

The mouthwash and/or toothpaste is certainly to blame.. Any recommendations?

The problem with most commercial toothpastes, around 99%, is an ingredient called Sodium Lauryl Sulphate.  It will totally destroy any pleasure of food eaten after brushing, if this stuff is part of the mix.  

I used to sell berries years ago at the local farmers market, and provided samples to taste.  I knew the berries were good tasting and sweet.  I had one person take a sample.  She gave me the funniest look and couldn't wait to spit it out.  I asked her if she had recently brushed her teeth and she said yes.  At the beginning of that season, I had just gone out early in the morning to pick.  I started out with sampling off the bush and of course it was just after brushing.  I couldn't believe how nasty something could taste. and found out later about the toothpaste connection. So at least I had some experience with the issue to relate with the problem the customer had with odd flavors.

Many toothpastes you find at the health food/natural food stores have totally different ingredient lists, so I'd suggest you look there if you want to get away from these funny ingredients.

I find that a combination of salty and Umami food neutralizes nicely. Fortunately there is a lot of breakfast foods that fall into that category.  Alternately, try cheese puffs.  I know it sounds unlikely, but try it because it works well.

You might try brushing without toothpaste.  I do that most mornings before coffee.
