Listerine is a very popular mouthwash with many years on the market. For years, many of us have used it to fight mouth bacteria and have fresher breath, because that’s what it was made for, right?
But what if I told you that Listerine is the best-kept secret and has many more uses than you can imagine? If you want to know them, read on.
1. Nail treatment
If your nails begin to show signs of fungal infection, mix a 1:1 solution of mouthwash and white vinegar. Apply to the affected area with a cotton ball two or three times a day.
If you run out of deodorant, moisten a small piece of cotton with Listerine and apply it lightly to the armpit.
3. No more dry heels
Prepare a bath for your feet with 2.25 ml of Listerine and hot water, and soak them for 30 minutes.
4. Bathroom cleaning
If you run out of chlorine or bleach, pour a dash of Listerine into the cup and leave it for a few hours. Then clean it with the brush and rinse.
5. Fight acne
Apply in the morning and evening a little rinse on absorbent cotton and pass it through the affected area.
6. For cuts and scratches
Mouthwash was used as an antiseptic before its mouth-cleaning properties were known. It cures and disinfects some minor wounds with a cotton ball.
This amazing liquid has also been proven to be an effective anti-dandruff. Use it as a rinse with wet hair and let it work for a few minutes, then wash your hair and you’re done.
Rub a little bit on your dog to clean it and protect it from fleas.
9. Disinfect your toothbrush
Soak your toothbrush in a germ-killing mouthwash container for 10 minutes.
10. Say goodbye to the bad smell
An easy and effective way to avoid bad odor in a trash can is to place a paper soaked with a little bit of Listerine.
