Sweet and minty no, effective YES

Review Text: 
For the past 40 years I've used the original Listerine and I will continue to use the original Listerine for the next 40 years (if I live that long). It leaves my mouth feeling clean and my breath fresh. No, it's not sweet or "minty" like candy and I appreciate that. Thank you for continuing to provide a not sweet or minty mouthwash option.

I don’t know if it’s just me but this mouthwash is so gross! It tastes like bleach or some sort of chemical is it it? It makes my tongue numb for an hour!? Worst mouthwash I’ve ever used! The fumes make my eyes water

My husband uses the mint listerine and I would like to use the product as well but can’t open the container with my arthritis. Possibly an easier way to open your product? Still a full time working Realtor - any advice to open your product easily? Please do not share my contact info

Impossible lids

Review Questions: 
State: Idaho
Age: 65 or over
Review Text: 
I like this product, but I"m tired of the hassle of getting the lids off. Then I don't dare put caps back on tightly so I just leave the caps "resting" on top. There are two bottles left and they will be the last I buy. Add to that the black plastic rim that holds the bottles together. Listerine isn't that perfect of a product

I let my supply of Listerine Regular run out--it can be hard to find--everyone with good dental sense is using it. I used another brand. Within days, my gums were bleeding and one spot is particular was very sore. Going back to Listerine--will stock up and never let my supply get below a certain level. Thank you for this product.

Due to other health issues, I had slacked off on my dental program over a two year period. Brushing once a day at night. Inevitably this led to bleeding gums and the signature puffy red telltale of gingivitis. I immediately started flossing again. While helpful, it wasn’t enough. A bloody mess, let’s leave it at that. I even started noticing that my gums were receding. Then I remembered Listerine. I never thought it was that intense or painful; when my mouth was healthy. So I bought Cool Mint Listerine and added it to my program. Brush, floss and rinse with Listerine twice a day. For the first week it was excruciating. It took everything I had to keep swishing for 30 seconds to a minute. But I held in and got through it. By the second week I noticed it was much less painful. Still intense, but completely tolerable. What I also noticed though was that my gums were bleeding only a tiny bit while flossing and they were starting to look a healthy shade of pink again. Unbelievable. I will never let this happen again and will continue using Listerine after flossing. To me, the pain was both a punishment for letting myself go like this and also a sign that this formula was burning out all the bacteria and germs that were causing my problems. Want a healthy mouth? Set up a program and stick to it. It only takes ten minutes total out of your day. Brush, floss and thoroughly rinse with Listerine. Thank you for this product!

Listerine Original does the job

Review Questions: 
State: Colorado
Age: 25-34
Review Text: 
The two common complaints with Listerine is that "it burns", and that the original formula contains alcohol. While both sentiments are true, there is simply no finer mouthwash on the market than Listerine Original. This includes other flavors of Listerine. Believe me. I've tried them. Listerine Original is the only mouthwash that leaves my mouth clean, and my breath fresh.

Bad Breath

Review Questions: 
State: Wyoming
Age: 25-34
Review Text: 
In the past two years, my love for spicy food has gone up affecting my breath. In gathering, i can feel people uncomfortable around me. I have started using Listerine Freshburst for over two weeks morning and evening after flossing and brushing. My problem is, how do i know listerine is solving my problem or do i try a different variant of listerine for instance Listerine Origional?
