I like to be prepared for all kinds of situations, so I have products in my medicine cabinet for just about any situation that might come up. Which is why in the past, I only used mouthwash like Listerine for its intended purpose. That is, until now…
As it turns out, there are actually a lot of unexpected uses for mouthwash.
How about using Listerine as deodorant, a nail fungus remover, or a toilet bowl cleaner? Sure, there are products specifically made for each of these purposes. But what if you’re out of, say, window washing fluid? Then, knowing that you can also use Listerine saves a trip to the store.

Listerine, which was created in the late 1800s, was originally developed as an antiseptic. And from the beginning, it was intended to be used in surgery. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that it starting being marketed as a bad breath remedy.
The mouthwash contains useful ingredients, such as thyme, eucalyptus, and alcohol, so it’s not surprising that people have started using it in all sorts of creative ways. And it goes without saying that you can use other types of mouthwash, too!
