It was probably only a few hours ago that you swirled a capful of Listerine mouthwash to help keep your mouth clean and smell fresh.
Listerine is said to kill germs that cause plaque, gingivitis, and bad breath, which is why millions of people around the world use it. It kills all the things we don't want, because going to the dentist and paying thousands of dollars is just not something we like to do.
We all love this product, some of us love it so much that we can't fall asleep without our mouths smelling cool and minty fresh. I always have two bottles, one on my bathroom counter, and one in the cabinet under the sink.
Listerine has been around since 1879, so you'd think it would be good for you because it's been around for so long. Wrong.
According to Grunge, Listerine isn't as amazing as we think it is, in fact, we've been "lied to our whole lives."
You're definitely going to think twice before you raise another cup of this mouthwash to your mouth...
