OraBrush Tongue Cleaner Ultra Soft
Well designed and easy to use.
This tongue cleaner is a very useful addition next to your toothbrush. I use it every time after I clean my teeth. It's good design makes it easy to hold and clean your tongue. I feel that the price could be a little cheaper - round the same price as a single toothbrush.

I've been using this since it was advertised through a YouTube channel & only available online in the US and I wouldn't ever use a different tongue brush. This is designed to lift and remove the gunk on your tongue and works perfectly! It's really weird the first time but something you can get used to. I use it once or twice a week only when I feel the need to.
I've asked my dentist about this and they say it's fine to use but over use will lead to your mouth producing more gunk leading to a vicious cycle of always wanting to remove it; that's why I only use it when I feel the need to.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who feels they have a white tongue, bad breath or just simply want to remove gunk on their tongue.

Gag, but effective.
Excusez-moi for the pun!
I've been using the same Boots' Tongue Scraper since time immemorial, and it was due time to replace it (very overdue, erm, apparently one's meant to replace it as often as a toothbrush, oops!). I'd grown dissatisfied with the Boot's one, it seemed to lose effect over the, erm, years. Anyway, on a gamble, seeing all the rave reviews on the packaging, plumped for this 'contraption'. Really, it's a just a jumbo sized tongue scraper, like those on the back of some toothbrushes, with silicone firm but flexible bristles.
And I must say, it really is effective. You swirl it round in rotating movements, and all that build-up is in a word, gross. It's not painful, it's not uncomfortable, it's not time-consuming. No more trouble than brushing your teeth. And if you've often been left with a dodgy aftertaste in the mouth (namely, from eating raw onions or garlic, or strong artificial flavourings from crisps and snacks, or other artificial flavoured things), you'd be amazed by how simply cleaning your tongue, wherein all those little tongue and grooves debris collects, solves the problem. You can actually taste a clean palette afterwards, as tasteless as water. I bet professional tasters know this secret.
So easy to clean too, just rinse it. Trouble is, go too far back, and gag.
Why doesn't my dentist recommended one? In fact, why has no one ever recommended them? In fact, why doesn't the Board of Dental Hygiene recommend these?
Bottom line: a clean mouth is not just clean teeth. Provided you eat and have a tongue, it's due a clean once in a while.
Though it's expensive, it's no more than a toothbrush. Value your tongue as your teeth, I say!
