SHE POURED LISTERINE ON A COTTON BALL AND THEN RUBBED HER ARMPITS. AFTER A FEW MINUTES SHE COULD NOT BELIEVE HER OWN EYES!

Did you know that when mouthwash was first invented for oral health in 1895, it was used as a surgical disinfectant?

Today, mouthwash is used as a supplement to proper brushing and flossing. While this antibacterial rinse is great for taking your dental hygiene to the next level, there are other uses for mouthwash as well.

10 Other Uses for Mouthwash
Nail fungus
Alcohol and other antiseptic agents are present in mouthwashes, which are effective in treating yeast infections. Simply wipe the affected area with a cotton ball soaked in equal parts mouthwash and vinegar. Do this 2-3 times a day.
Deodorant
A mouthwash can be used to eliminate body odor due to ingredients such as eucalyptol, thymol, and methyl salicylate. Soak a cotton ball in mouthwash and rub it under your armpit.
Dandruff treatment
Mouthwash is great for getting rid of dandruff because it has antibacterial properties. After a simple hair wash routine, mix equal parts of mouthwash and water and leave it on your scalp for a few minutes. Be careful when washing as it may sting your eyes.
Laundry
If your washing machine starts to smell musty, or if you’re washing really smelly clothes, use a capful of sugar-free, alcohol-free, colorless mouthwash for your next load. Also, if you run out of detergent, you can use a little more.
Flowers
Keep your flowers fresh by adding a little mouthwash to the vase. It controls bacteria and slows down decomposition.
Post-piercing antiseptic
Apply mouthwash after a new piercing to prevent infection. For best results, we recommend using a sugar-free mouthwash.
Refresh the trash can
Try dampening a cotton or paper towel with mouthwash and putting it directly into the can or trash bag. This will help reduce the odor.
Clean and tidy bathroom
The antibacterial and deodorant ingredients in mouthwash make it a great alternative to regular bathroom cleaners. Pour a cup of mouthwash into the toilet, let it sit for about an hour, and then flush as usual.
Blisters and cuts
For small scratches, cuts, or blisters, apply a cotton ball, q-tip, or paper towel soaked in mouthwash to the wound. If you don’t have the oil, the antibacterial properties of the mouthwash may be different.
Clear glass
Amazingly, a sugar-free mouthwash mixed with water can clean windows. Test on a small area before wiping the entire window. Depending on the type of mouthwash, streaks may remain.
