How to use mouthwash

  1. Pour the correct amount of mouthwash according to the manufacturer into your mouth.

  2. Rinse and swish vigorously in your mouth for 30-60 seconds.

  3. At this point you may choose to spit this solution out and use new solution to gargle, or you may use the current solution in your mouth.

  4. Gargle the solution for 30-60 seconds as well. 30-60 seconds might seem long but it is important to do because a lot of the bacteria that causes bad breath reside in the back of the mouth by the throat.

  5. Spit out the solution in the sink.

At this point you may choose to rinse your mouth out with water, or you may choose to leave the residual mouthwash in your mouth to continue to work a bit longer. If you choose to leave it in, try not to drink or anything for 10 minutes. If you use a strong mouthwash that uses a high concentration of alcohol or hydrogen peroxide, it might not be a good idea to not rinse your mouth. Leaving strong mouthwash in your mouth may irritate, dry, or cause other problems in your mouth. Test different methods to see what works best for you.
