My mom used Listerine for just about all needs medically.
And it worked.

You don't suppose that's why Johnson and Johnson bought the brand from Pfizer after it merged with Warner-Lambert?

Sounds like that Chris Rock joke when he talks about how his Dad said "put some Tussin on it!"

How much did Listerine pay to get this nbc4 article written since there are many like kind products on the market?

Alcoholics drink it when they run out of booze. Saw that on Intervention.

it keeps the skeeters away too. Alcoholics supposedly also drink rubbing alcohol and cheap after shave. Not me---I like the good expensive stuff!

I received an e-mail from one of my cousins and it says if you spray it on your lawn etc. that bugs will stay away for outdoor parties. I recently put some in a plastic dish while having a bbq and it really worked.

It's good for hot spots on dogs too. Clip & clean area with Listerine & then put corn starch on the area.

Listerine combined with Skin so soft (3/4 listerine 1/4 SSS) also keeps the sand flies away while at the beach.

Wow. If it can do all that, Listerine sounds like it could be more qualified to be president than Obama!

If it does all that, is it really safe to take it internally? But seriously, that is some nasty tasting stuff. If Nytol still has alcohol in it, you'd be better off drinking that to get drunk.

I hear it's a main ingredient in magic fairy dust, and it can cure lycanthropy.
