Mouthwash

Redirected from Antiseptic mouth rinse

Antiseptic mouth rinse, often called mouthwash, is an oral hygiene[?] product that claims to kill the germs that cause plaque, gingivitis, and bad breath[?]. It is used by people interested in oral health and in not offending others with bad breath. It often comes in a mint flavor.

Proper use involves rinsing one's mouth with 20 milliliters of antiseptic mouth rinse two times a day. One then spits out, rather than swallows, the mouth rinse.

Active ingredients include thymol[?], eucalyptol[?], methyl salicylate[?], and menthol[?]. Ingredients also include water, and a significant amount of alcohol (around 20%). Because of the alcohol content, it possible to fail a breath analyzer[?] test after rinsing one's mouth.
