It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 6 months since the Coronavirus completely changes the world. We’ve all been forced to stay home, and adjust our way of life because of this crazy disease.

As scientists continue to learn more and more about the disease, we are finding out about more ways to potentially protect ourselves.

This latest item that experts are saying could help is something you probably have in your bathroom right now; mouthwash. 

In a new study by the, Journal of Medical Virology, researchers investigated over-the-counter mouthwashes and nasal rinses commonly found in drug stores and supermarkets, since both types of products “directly impact the major sites of reception and transmission of human coronaviruses (HCoV)” — namely, the mouth and nose — and “may provide an additional level of protection against the virus.”

After studying many products you can find in drug stores, the researchers came to the conclusion that,

The Listerine mouthwashes, as well as Crest Pro-Health, Equate Antiseptic mouthwash, and CVS Antiseptic mouthwash, were “highly effective at inactivating infectious virus with greater than 99.9 percent,” 

So there you go, not only will your breath be fresh, you may also be protecting yourself from this horrible disease.
