Mouthwash Isn’t Just For Your Mouth. Expert DIYer Shares 10 Nifty Uses For It At Home


Most of us have a bottle of mouthwash in our home to keep our breath fresh. But did you know that your bottle of mouthwash can do far more than that?

Well, it can! Here are some household uses for mouthwash in your home.


The antifungal properties in eucalyptol, which is found in most mouthwashes, prevents the growth of a yeast-like fungus called Malassezia. An overgrowth of Malassezia is what causes dandruff. Mix one part of witch hazel, one part mouthwash, and eight parts of water in a spray bottle and spritz your hair at the roots and scalp after you wash your hair to fend off dandruff. Just make sure you don’t have any open cuts, scrapes, or wounds on your head because this solution might burn.
