|Facts About Mouth Wash
the commercial mouthwash preparations available today fall under two categories, those
that contain alcohol and those that do not. They also contain fillers, so you have to use
a lot. Those without alcohol depend primarily on heavy, sugar-laden flavorings which mask
over bad breath but do nothing to eliminate its cause. Those with alcohol destroy some of
the bacteria in the mouth, but ineffectively. Additionally you have the potential harmful
effects of alcohol on tender oral tissues.
The use of food grade hydrogen peroxide to eliminate bacteria is an extremely
effective, safe and gentle alternative. When you combine this with the soothing effects of
aloe vera you have a great product to cleanse the mouth.
