Are you sick of your bad breath? If so, try rinsing your mouth with mouthwash! For your benefit, mouthwash is made of ingredients that extinguish bad breath. Some of those ingredients are:

Antibacterial agents: Bad breath is caused by bacteria, and the mouth is the perfect place for bacteria to multiply. Because your mouth is warm and wet, the bacteria spread between the teeth and over the tongue throughout the day. This makes your breath worse. Most mouthwashes contain alcohol, which is an antibacterial agent that removes the bacteria that cause bad breath.

Germicides: Some mouthwashes use germicide that not only kills germs but also reduces plaque buildup. This germicide is called cetylpyridinium chloride. Plaque is a major cause of gum disease and tooth decay, which are dental issues that often cause bad breath. Germicides help keep your mouth healthy long after you swish your mouth, which helps keep bad breath at bay.

Fluoride: Fluoride helps strengthen tooth enamel and makes the smile less vulnerable to tooth decay. So, the stronger teeth you have, the less plaque buildup you have, which will improve your breath overall.

As you can see, there are many ingredients that can help you improve your smelly, stinky breath.
