Everybody knows mouthwash is for killing germs in your mouth, but there are more uses for mouthwash whether you are using Listerine or some other brand. The same antiseptic that kills germs in your mouth have active ingredients that can kill germs in other places.
IN THE BATHROOM
After brushing your teeth and rinsing your mouth with a mouthwash, why not wash your toothbrush off with the same stuff so that the bacteria you just brush out of your mouth will not linger on your toothbrush? Now be honest, you didn't know that, did you?
Get Rid Mold and Mildew
Don't throw away your old toothbrush. Instead dip the old toothbrush in mouthwash to clean mold in your bathroom.
Clean your toilet by pouring a half of cup down the toilet and swish it around not with your tooth brush but with a toilet brush. Not only will it clean your toilet but it will also give it a great shine and a good smell.
Clean Bathroom Mirror
Put a little mouthwash on a clean cloth and wipe your mirrors, cabinet fixtures, sink handles and toilet flush lever. Also clean up water stains with that same cloth.
IN THE LAUDRY ROOM
Keep a bottle of mouthwash in the laundry room. Add a cup of it to a load of laundry along with your detergent. This will kill germs off your clothes and keep your washer smelling good.
IN THE KITCHEN
Pour a half cup of mouthwash down your garbage disposal to keep odor free.
Soak a paper towel in Listerine and put it in your kitchen garbage can to mask the odor from foods thrown into the garbage.
If Listerine is good enough to put in your mouth, is is good enough to put in your dish water to help the dishes stay germ free.
To get rid of a blemish on your face, use a cotton swab to dab some mouthwash on it. It will kill the bacteria and the blemish will disappear.
Use mouthwash to clean cuts and scrapes if you do not have antiseptic wipes.
Mouthwash can be used to eliminate dandruff if you massage it into your scalp and shampoo as usual.
Mouthwash can be used to prevent the spread of lice from the hair.
Men can use mouthwash as an aftershave especially if they are out of their favorite brand of after shave.
If you run out of deodorant, dab some mouthwash on a cotton ball or face cloth and apply to your underarms or other smelly body parts.
Because most mouthwashes contain an antiseptic, it is an excellent choice for wounds.
Use Listerine for itches associated with skin diseases, psoriasis, allergic reactions, rashes, acne, bug bites.
OTHER USES FOR LISTERINE
Use a lint free cloth to clean your computer screen, television and camera lenses.
"Stumped on how to get "Godzilla" off of my friends nose, my mother walked in with a bottle of "Listerine Mouth Wash." She said pour some of this onto a washcloth and wash your face with it. It seemed idiotic but we trusted her. We left the Listerine on the surface for about 10 minutes before washing it off. My friend said she felt something tingling in her pores. My mother told her to wash it again the same way before bed time and in the morning. She also recommended her to leave toothpaste on the pimple overnight. Using dental products to get rid of acne sounded bizarre, but the results just blew our minds away." by Nicole Vosk
