Listerine, the popular mouthwash brand, contains numerous helpful substances such as thyme and eucalyptus and can be used for more than just maintaining your oral health. Here are some creative uses for Listerine you probably didn’t know about:
Rub it under your arms
You went out but forgot your deodorant? Listerine can help you! Just pour some of it on a cotton ball and dab it under your arms to destroy the bacteria on your underarms and prevent body odor.
Soak your feet in it
Soaking your feet in Listerine for 30 minutes will eliminate toenail fungus easily. For more advanced infections, add some white vinegar in the mixture.
Dab it on your itches
Dabbing some Listerine on bug bites and itches will provide some relief. According to dental hygienist Carrie Ibertson, Listerine should be your go-to source for bug bites and itches caused by poison ivy or poison oak.
Pour it down the toilet
Pour some Listerine down your toilet bowl to disinfect and deodorize it. Besides this, the mouthwash product will also give your toilet bowl a pearly white shine.
Rub it on your dog
Listerine can successfully replace the expensive flea sprays and products you’re using on your dog to eliminate the pests. It also doesn’t contain harmful chemicals that can harm your pet’s health. The Krazy Coupon Lady suggests mixing it with shampoo in a bath or diluting some Listerine with water and using it as a spray for best results.
Wet your hair with it
Not many people know it, but Listerine is a great anti-dandruff remedy. Just massage some of it in your scalp, wrap your hair in a towel and rinse with water in the end.
Put it on your face
According to a comment on the Seattle Times, nothing works better against acne than Listerine. Apply it twice a day (in the morning and evening) to relieve the problem effectively.
Dip your toothbrush in it
Just as it can fight germs in your mouth, it can also destroy the germs on your toothbrush. Just pour some Listerine in your nightstand glass and leave the toothbrush in it for a couple of hours to destroy the bacteria and prevent problems such as bad breath.
Put it in your trash
Odors coming from the trash can smell especially bad, but Listerine can help you defeat them. Just line the bottom of your trash can with a Listerine-soaked paper towel and you can throw your garbage without fearing odors.
Spray it on your screen
Listerine can help you clean your TV od PC screen better than any other product. Just spray some on a soft cloth and wipe the screen to clean and disinfect it well. It will also leave a minty smell behind instead of the chemical smell left by popular cleaning products.
