The Listerine Story – From Surgery Antiseptic to Modern Mouthwash

Listerine was first created by chemist Joseph Lawrence after he saw a surgery being done in a chamber sterilized with pulverized antiseptic which resulted in higher post-operation survival rates. This inspired Lawrence to create a formulation of his own that was perfect for killing germs in the mouth.

In 1879, Lawrence created the first ever Listerine mouthwash, a unique antiseptic for use in surgeries and bathing wounds. By 1895, various studies were released that show that the Listerine formula was effective at killing germs in the mouth, cementing Listerine’s place as a top oral hygiene product.

In 1914, Listerine mouthwash became the first prescription product in the US to also be sold over the counter. It was marketed as an oral germ killer and was well-received by consumers.

How Listerine Got Its Name

Have you ever wondered how the Listerine brand was derived? Dr. Joseph Lawrence, the creator of Listerine mouthwash, wanted to name his work after an English doctor and surgeon named Lister who inspired him to create the mouthwash. Lister was the surgeon who performed the surgery mentioned above in 1865.

Composition of Listerine Mouthwash Solutions

The active ingredients listed on Listerine bottles are essential oils menthol (mint), thymol (thyme), methyl salicylate (wintergreen), and eucalyptol (eucalyptus). When combined together, these ingredients will have an antiseptic property.

Listerine Products

Apart from mouthwash solutions, Listerine also has a variety of oral care products including toothpastes, toothbrushes, and floss, all marketed under the Listerine brand. These products make Listerine the go-to brand for your oral hygiene needs.

Alternative Uses for Listerine Malaysia

When Listerine is mentioned, the first thing that comes to mind is antiseptic mouthwash. Listerine products can effectively kill germs that cause bad breath. Many do not know, however, that the antiseptic mouthwash produced by Listerine can be used for more than maintaining your oral hygiene. Thanks to its antiseptic properties, Listerine products can be used to remove bacteria and germs. Here are some unconventional ways you can use Listerine antiseptic mouthwash that you might find useful:

Get Rid of Your Pet’s Fleas

If you have dogs and cats as a pet, it is highly likely that it is attacked by fleas often. Instead of using expensive remedies, you can use Listerine to get rid of the fleas. You can mix the antiseptic mouthwash with shampoo. Wash the pet with the mixture by getting the animal wet all over and then scrub the modified shampoo over its fur. Let the shampoo sit for five minutes and then rinse the animal thoroughly.

Remove Odour in Your Garbage Disposal

Do you notice a foul smell emanating from your sink or garbage disposal? You can get rid of it easily by using Listerine mouthwash. All you need to do is to pour half a cup of the mouthwash solution down the sink or garbage disposal and the smell should go away in no time. Otherwise, you can also soak a paper towel in Listerine and put it at the bottom of your trash can to help remove the stink.

Get Rid of Dandruff

Having dandruff can be embarrassing and uncomfortable. Rather than spending a fortune on specialised anti-dandruff shampoo or hair treatments, you can use Listerine to get rid of your dandruff issues. The anti-fungal ingredients in Listerine are effective in countering Pityrosporum, the fungus that is the main cause of dandruff.

To utilise Listerine as a dandruff treatment, massage the mouthwash into your scalp thoroughly. Then, wrap your hair in a towel and let it sit for 15 minutes. After that, rinse it out with normal shampoo as normal. If you have a serious case of dandruff, you may need to repeat the treatment multiple times for the fungus to be completely killed off.

Banish Stinky Feet

Having stinky feet can be an embarrassing ordeal especially when you are in the presence of others. The main cause for stinky feet is usually germs and bacteria that emit a foul odour. To keep foot odour at bay, soak a piece of cloth in Listerine and rub it all over your feet to disinfect your feet. You can also apply a small amount of Listerine into the inside of your shoes too. Individuals with athlete’s foot can also benefit from applying Listerine onto their feet. Apart from that, you can also remove toe and nail fungus by soaking your feet in water mixed with mouthwash.

Get Rid of Mold and Mildew

As Listerine mouthwash solutions are antiseptic in nature, they can also be used to remove stubborn stains, including mold and mildew in your bathroom. You can use the solution at full strength when you are using it to remove shower mold or mildew. Apart from removing shower mold, you can remove the mildew and fungus from the soil of your plants. To do this, mix 1 part of Listerine with 3 parts of water into a spray bottle and spray the mixture at the area where the plant meets the soil once a week.

Apart from removing mold and mildew, you can also use it for cleaning other things around the house such as humidifiers, cabinets, sinks, and even television screens by mixing the mouthwash solution with water at a 1:1 ratio.

Relieve Toothache

If you experience a sudden toothache, Listerine can serve as a temporary painkiller of sorts. By dabbing some Listerine on the painful area to numb it. Although it is just a temporary remedy, it can come in handy especially in situations where you are unable to immediately seek a dentist’s help.

Act as a Deodorant

Cannot live without a deodorant? If your deodorant runs out, do not worry – your Listerine mouthwash can also double as a deodorant. Just dab a tiny amount of the mouthwash on a cotton ball or towel, wipe it on your underarms and you are good to go.

Kill the Germs on Your Toothbrush

Many of us know about the importance of keeping our oral hygiene but we forget the fact that our toothbrushes should be kept germ-free too. When we brush our teeth, some of the germs will be transferred to our toothbrush as well. To sanitize the toothbrush, simply immerse the brush side of your toothbrush in Listerine for 20 minutes to kill any lingering germs that might be on your toothbrush.

It seems that Listerine has many other uses besides keeping your mouth clean. For comprehensive oral care, you can rely on Colgate and Darlie to provide you with high-quality oral hygiene products.
