Cleaning one’s tongue when fasting

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Do drinks/toothpaste that get stuck in the lines of one’s tongue count as food and do I have to get rid of them? I’m afraid they might be an issue because I dont want to swallow potential food during salah and when I’m fasting. 

Bismillaah

A: What is perceivable should be cleared out.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
