Why Listerine?

Today, we use it mostly as a mouthwash, but its creators had other plans for it. According to “Krazy Coupon Lady,” the liquid formula was developed in 1879. Listerine was used for the decontamination of surgical instruments. It was first introduced into stores as a breath freshening agent in 1970.

The wash has many valuable ingredients, among others, extract of thyme, eucalyptus and menthol, extracted from peppermint. It also contains alcohol, which is a strong antiseptic.
