1. Rescue your plants from infection. If your plants are showing signs of either, spray them once a week with a solution of 25% mouthwash and 75% water. This helps kill any infection without damaging the plants.
2. Deep clean your skin. Helps remove dirt, make up and oil from the skin that cleansers won’t remove. Dilute mouthwash and water in your mouthwash cap and pour onto a cotton pad before applying to your skin.
3. Treat mild cases of dandruff. Use an alcohol based mouthwash as a rinse after shampooing your hair.
4. Garlic odour remover. As well as removing the odour from your mouth, mouthwash can get rid of the smell of garlic on your hands too.
5. An emergency alternative to deodorant. Apply some mouthwash to your underarms using a tissue. However, do not use this method on freshly shaven armpits as it will sting
6. 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 becoming too dark. Epsom salts also work extremely well to soothe inflamed or bruised skin if you don’t have a bottle of mouthwash to hand.
