These 4 Ayurvedic home remedies can quickly clean up the white layer deposited over your tongue. 

Coconut oil pulling: It promotes dental hygiene by removing plaque buildup in the mouth, which is one of the causes of the emergence of a furry tongue. Swirl a spoonful of coconut oil for 10 to 15 seconds in your tongue.

(Do it in the morning on an empty stomach)

Neem: Neem's antibacterial and antifungal qualities aid in the removal of pathogenic oral germs from the mouth. This aids in the gradual eradication of a white tongue. One tablespoon of dried neem leaves can be added to a cup of boiling water, simmered, strained, and consumed. 

Aloe vera: Its juice should be consumed once a day. Aloe vera naturally reduces inflammation and fights bacteria. These characteristics aid in the treatment of illnesses that affect the mouth, such as oral lichen planus, which causes the formation of buildup.

Turmeric: Curcumin, a substance found in turmeric, has antibacterial effects. Curcumin enhances oral health, inhibits the growth of oral infections in the mouth and lessens the appearance of a white tongue. 

Remedy- To make a paste, combine a half teaspoon of turmeric powder with a few drops of lemon juice. Gently scrub your tongue with your finger or a brush with soft bristles for 4-5 minutes. Rinse your mouth using plain water.

White tongue normally disappears within a few weeks. An antifungal mouthwash can also be used. However, you should contact your doctor for a diagnosis and treatment if it persists for more than a few weeks, or if you have pain or difficulty eating or speaking.
