    You can usually treat yellow tongue at home by gently brushing your tongue with a solution that is 1 part hydrogen peroxide and 5 parts water. Rinse your mouth with plain water afterward. Quitting smoking and increasing the amount of fiber in your diet may help reduce the growth of bacteria in your mouth that causes yellow tongue.
