To maintain clean mouth...etc.......?

I have been longtime user of product listerine original mouthwash. Additional to the maintenance of teeth and gums it has other benefits.

But the product is discontinued. I am a bulk buyer ( of lots of things ) and running down my existing stock of LO. What next ? What is the best replacement?

Any LO addicts with an idea ?

Perhaps adding rum to any old mouthwash might have useful effect ?

I'm with you. What is wrong with bog standard, original Listerine? Perhaps the millennials can't handle the "flavour" and need ii perfumed with mint, orange, menthol and all the other touchy feely stuff.

Perhaps it's because the colour of the original may be offensive to the poor dears in this overly PC world. .

If you find a replacement (for either the Listerine or the PC world) please let me know.

DaveReidUK I read your link. The right mouthwash is in fact good for my long term health, including aspects other than my teeth and gums. ( I won't post the exact details ) .

That is why I seek another product with the same properties as the discontinued one.

Try Corsydyl. I have used it everyday for years. Seems to work and my teeth and gums are getting ancient!

Another vote for Corsydyl.

Buy it in a discount warehouse.

It can make your teeth go a bit grey/brown.

I used Corsodyl years ago, following a severe gum infection. It's certainly very good if you have any gum problems, but my dentist did warn against using it all the time, as it does stain your teeth.

I also use eucryl tooth powder every now and again to keep them sparkly

Why did you think it was discontinued? Still seems to be advertised.

We use Colgate Max. I am a recent convert. After a thorough teeth clean session I am amazed how much is then washed out, even after using interdents.

yes vodka is in contention. Sallyann1234 I thank you for that link but.......

The product offered seems to be from USA and works out around five times the price I have paid in the past. Indeed there are a few things in my life where cost is not a consideration but this is not one of them.

I find a 50/50 mix of salt and baking soda works well, either dry as a toothpaste or dissolved in warm water as a mouth wash.

On this side of the pond every supermarket chain has their own branded knockoff, pretty much identical to the original. Perhaps British entrepreneurs are not as shamelessly greedy as ours? Find one and point out the available market niche. Or buy a small factory and do it yourself; the recipe is available on Wikipedia.
