Interesting Things That You Can Do With Mouthwash
Mouthwash, Not Just For Your Breath
About a month ago I first discovered that that you can use mouthwash on insect bites to stop the itch. Intrigued, I decided to try and discover just how many things that you can use mouthwash for. This is one bathroom staple that you can't afford to be without.
Treat Athletes Foot And Poison Ivy
Apply a cotton ball soaked in mouthwash several times a day to the affected area. For poison ivy it will provide the relief of an instant cooling sensation while stimulating blood flow to the area,which will help it to heal quicker. And mild cases of athletes foot should respond after a few days.
Fungicide Treatment For Plants
You will find that this works great as a fungicide treatment for your plants. Just fill a spray bottle with one part mouthwash to three parts water and spritz your infected plants once a week. Some plants are more delicate than others, so be sure to first do a test on each one to ensure that it doesn't harm the plant.
Sometimes, especially during the summer regular washing alone isn't enough to cope with dirty smelly socks. But you will find that if you add 1 cup of alcohol-based sugarless mouthwash to the wash cycle the combination of alcohol and antibacterial oils with effectively kill the odor causing germs.
Sanitize Your Toothbrush
Everyone knows how important it is to keep your toothbrush clean and free from germs. And the easiest way to do that is to swish your toothbrush around in some mouthwash and let soak for about thirty seconds.
Clean your counter tops
In a pinch mouthwash makes a great household cleaner. You can use it to wipe down and disinfect countertops and mirrors in your kitchen and bathroom.
