Tonight I decided to try rinsing my mouth with Listerine. I decided to try it since Surgeon's General (whoever he is) says it's the best; better than my original Colgate mouth wash.

I started to swish and thought of the Listerine commercials with all those people who rinse for 30 seconds in there jammies. Well, this is what I think about those commercials, I think those actors are liars. I think those actors were rinsing with water. Why? Because my mouth burned so bad after 7 seconds I didn't know how I was gonna make it 30.

I tried my best to hold it and did a little hot-mouth-dance (like that was going to help) but after 20 seconds I couldn't stand it so I spit it out and actually screamed because of the burn.

So it's been five minutes. Yes my mouth does in fact feel very clean, although I don't agree with the "minty fresh breath" taste so much. In fact, I think my breath tastes more like a shoe.

But will I do it again tomorrow? You betcha!

I switched to using Crest Pro Health (which does *not* burn and tastes much better) and I like it much better.

I can go the full 30 seconds. By 22-23, I'm telling myself that it wouldn't be manly if I failed. Can't have that happening!

I agree with the shoe taste, although I've never tasted a shoe, I can well imagine :)

Have you tried Listerine Vanilla Mint? It's not as bad as the other Listerine flavors.

p.s., It's also recommended that we keep our toothbrush in a cup of Listerine to kill the bacteria that accumulate on the brush.
