Did you know? Brushing only covers 25% of your mouth. Germs left behind in your mouth may cause bad breath, plaque and gum problems. Listerine Mouthwash reaches all parts of your mouth to remove 99.9% germs and reduce gum problems in 2 weeks. Our unique formula with 4 Essential Oils (Menthol, Thymol, Eucalpytol, Oil of Wintergreen) deeply penetrates to remove the bacteria in the plaque biofilm. For best results, rinse with undiluted 20ml twice a day for 30 seconds. Don’t worry if you can’t get to 30 seconds the first time, it gets easier with each try.
I brush my teeth every day, why do I need Listerine?
Think about it, when was the last time you cleaned those teeth right at the back, or under your tongue? Germs may get left behind even after brushing. These leftover germs may cause gum problems, plaque and bad breath. Listerine reaches your whole mouth to remove 99.9% germs and reduces gum problems in 2 weeks*.
*When used twice daily; Individual results may vary.

What else does Listerine do apart from just giving you fresh breath?
Leftover germs in your mouth may cause bleeding gums and build into plaque, besides bad breath. Listerine reaches your whole mouth, including hard-to-reach places where brushing misses, to remove 99.9% germs that cause these oral problems.
The taste of Listerine feels intense – is this normal?
Yes, it is perfectly normal to experience intense taste initially. It gets easier with every use. However, if you prefer a milder taste, we recommend that you try the new Listerine Cool Mint Mild Taste which contains the same formulation in a mild taste.
