Mouthwash is not just for getting rid of plaque! This multi-tasking product can be used in and around the home in so many different ways so sit back and behold the many uses of alcohol-based mouthwash…

1. Nail fungus treatment

A powerful combo.

If your toes are showing the first signs of a fungal infection, or you want to prevent it – this is wise as once you’re infected, it’s difficult to eradicate – grab a bottle of mouthwash. Make a 1:1 solution of mouthwash and white vinegar, and apply to the affected area with a cotton wool pad two to three times a day.

2. Reduce the appearance of a bruise


If you’ve had a little knock or bash to your body, immediately rub in some mouthwash to the area. You can help prevent the bruise from developing too dark.

3. A travel hand sanitiser

Safe for all.

Pour some mouthwash into a travel spray bottle to use as a handy hand sanitizer. Make sure our mouthwash is alcohol-based and sugar-free, to keep it stick-free.

I love a multi-tasking product, and this is a great way to save precious space in your suitcase.

4. An emergency alternative to deodorant

Handy to know.

Out of deodorant? Apply some mouthwash to your underarms using a tissue. Caution: do not use this method on freshly shaven armpits as it will sting on open wounds.

5. Refresh your feet after a long day

Minty fresh.

f you’ve been on your feet all day, give yourself a refreshing foot soak by mixing a cup of mouthwash into water. This will refresh and soften your feet as well as kill any bad bacteria that might be brewing.
