I use Original Listerine and a brush to clean the light colored grout on my Italian ceramic tiled floor. Nothing else works as well and it leaves my whole house smelling fresh too!

I am shock to hear that drinking to much water can raise your sodium levels in your body. It's unbelievable but can be true back in 2003 I was in a hospital in S. Jersey and a male patient was drinking to much coffee all the time and and the doctors warned him that it would set levels in his brain off etc....but did not hear and comply the warning neither etc.... so there might be some truth behind all of this, so believe it is more likely this can happen.
My twin sister drinks alot of water daily and I try to warn her as well, but is a diabetic type 2 and is also very thristy etc....

I have also tried Listerine as a bug spray to keep those pesky gnats away while working in the yard and also when I am out on the golf course. It works temporarily and smells better than other bug sprays.

Wasn't that the saddest thing you ever saw? That woman cradling the bottle of mouthwash like a baby, she just wanted to sleep with it...but the husband wouldn't let her because she would just drink it? She would come out and look at it and go back to bed....sad....

We used to have a laborer who would drink a big bottle of it at work everyday.....Sometimes his breath was so good that he could hardly walk.

You can use listerine to douche. It cures imbalance in the vagina. I had a common yeast infection, it was very uncomfortable on a Sunday when there were no doctors available. I took a sandwich bag with no zipper, 2 teaspoons of listerine and filled the rest with warm water. I stuck a straw in it and used a rubber band to seal it. I got a towel, laid down, inserted and left for 3 or four mins. I felt better within half an hour. I continued this process for a few days and it was gone, though I am sure it was after the first time better safe than sorry. Used properly it's a safe douche for when you are ill, not normal use as you shouldn't douche regularly.

Is this really true? Mouthwash for my scalp?
