Sigh. I'm old enough to remember the old Listerine commercials. Husband comes in the door from a driving rain storm, wife tells him to change clothes, dry off and gargle with Listerine.

Then they had to engage in corrective advertising. "While Listerine will not prevent colds or lessen their severity...blah, blah, blah..."

Rubbing alcohol + Q-tips work just as well for probably 15% of the cost.  We all need to be frugal in these turbulent times.

a good psa for everyone:

the engineering test lab came up with this concoction to help keep us safe as (and i hate this label) "essential workers"

people jacking up the price or a scarcity of stock on hand sanitizer?  the lab guys made these jugs of isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol), tea tree oil, and moisturizer (so as not to dry your skin out).  gave everyone these little test specimens bottles to keep on us, and refill as necessary.  or just use an old cashed bottle you've laying about.

you can make gallons of this crap on the cheap, smells good, and keeps your skin soft.  truly a remarkable idea

They have better dental care than the U.S., sweetie. They're just not as vain about getting braces for that denture-perfect look.

Back in my day, we used corn based alcohol to clean up our breath.

Instead of smelling like dirty pigs, we just smelled like alcoholics. Not unlike the folks that used that listerine that happened to contain alcohol.

Because we all know that people that buy listerine are people that are just trying to get drunk.

The US might have better looking teeth. In the UK dentists will leave a healthy but crooked tooth alone.

How do they define "average"?

One could make an argument that "average" gun crime is lower in the UK than in the USA, and that fewer people were affected by COVID-19 in the UK than in the USA...

But it doesn't really take into account the fact that the UK is smaller than the smallest state in the USA.

And the USA has FIFTY states, not including territories.

An average takes population size into account. If the USA has 50 cases and the UK has twenty then the UK has a higher average. That's how averages work.

oh yes, forgot to mention. if you're like me and like to use hand sanitizer after taking a greasy dump, don't use the above if you've had a bit of the rashy swamp-ass going on after a hard days work out in the sun

because you'll find yourself loudly doing the native American rain dance around your throne in the bathroom.

The chart provided also says "*or latest provided year."

Is it not disingenuous to put something like that in something that is implied to be truthful?

"Yes, this is accurate... but, um, for whatever year... uh... whatever year... suits our argument best."
 
2020-05-14 7:20:03 PM  
Researchers with colleagues who have bad breath, that is.

Seriously, it likely won't really help with COVID-19, but really more people need to use mouthwash on a regular basis.

Yes, this probably means you.
 
2020-05-14 7:24:37 PM  
I'm pretty sure mouthwash is a relatively new concept, as in it probably didn't exist two centuries ago.

A better solution would probably involve brushing your teeth and avoiding the possibility of eating things that might break your teeth.

This may sound like common sense, but apparently, this is too much for most people to handle.

If you can find rubbing alcohol, this is a good idea. I just found a bottle at the local supermarket a few days ago. First one I've been able to find since I ran out in mid March.

Some folks say that drinking copious amounts of scotch will protect you from COVID-19.
Others folks say that eating large quantities of garlic will protect you from COVID-19.
I know both of these claims to be false.
I am still not taking any chances...

2020-05-14 8:02:05 PM  
The graphic says, "Person drinks mouthwash." This is obviously some strange usage of the word drinks that I wasn't previously aware of.  Never drink mouthwash unless someone has hidden all your booze.

Braces aren't always worn for aesthetic reasons. My son had them to prevent gum recession and tooth loss from his overbite.

Calling a stranger "sweetie" is incredibly condescending.

Actually, I just put my glass in a Ziploc bag. EverClear. And let sit. And bam like new. And, I end up with zero waste because when the wash dehydrates it's useful too
