  • The Myth - Using various substances and tricks when drunk can beat the breathalyzer test, to include eating breath mints or an onion, drinking mouthwash, placing a penny, battery, or ice in the mouth, and wearing dentures.
  • Verdict - Busted
  • Notes - None of the tested methods worked, and the MythBusters blood alcohol content was consistently over .08, verified with a field sobriety test. In addition, mouthwash actually made the breathalyzer give a higher reading than usual because of the inherent alcohol content.[1]
