Chances are.. if you coupon, you have tons and tons of mouthwash. We have loads upon LOADS of Listerine, and believe it or not, it comes in handy when I’m mopping my house.
Believe it or not, mouthwash is one item that has several uses – from mopping to laundry. If you have any alcohol based, sugar free mouthwash around your home, here are 10 uses for putting those extra bottles to good use:
Glass Cleaner. Apply to a damp cloth and wipe down your mirrors. You’ll nee d to dry with a dry cotton cloth.
Freshen your Laundry. Add one cup to a cycle of clothes (in the Rinse Cycle!) – it’ll eliminate the stinky smell.
Treat your Dandruff. Rinse your hair with 1/2 C. of Each Mouthwash an water after you shampoo. It might take a few rinses
Floor Cleaner. You can use Mouthwash to Mop your Floors.. just add to Mop Water as you would anything else.
Toilet Cleaner. Pour a cup in your toilet bowl, let it sit 30 minutes an rinse.
Facial Cleanser. Use a cotton ball dipped in mouthwash as astringent on your face – cheaper, an cleaner than buying brand name facial items.
Pet Pee. Deter your pets from peeing .. fill a spray bottle with 1 C. Water and 3 Tablespoons of Clear Mouthwash and spritz on the area.
Clean your Hands. After peeling onions or garlic, use it to clean your hands – simply wipe your hands with a cotton ball moistened in mouthwash.
Athlete’s Foot. Soak your Cotton Ball and dabble between the toes after your shower.
Garbage Disposal. Pour 1/2 C. down the sink / Garbage Disposal and run the disposal to eliminate a nasty odor.
