From having dry mouth plus a long walk in front of me, I took a mouth full of water. Not ridiculous full but enough to keep my tongue soaked. At the end of that few mile walk, my tongue didn't want to let me open my mouth. Soak your tongue for a while, depends on dry mouth but it cures dry mouth and is as refreshing as that first drink. Tried other fluids and liquids and water is highly recommended for this remedy. Try it.
