The best antiseptic for purposes of persu nal hygiene



Being efficiently antiseptic, non-poisonous and of agreeable odor and taste, Listerine has justly acquired much popularity as a mouth-wash, for daily use in the care and preservation of the teeth.

As an antiseptic wash or dressing for superficial wounds, cuts, bruises or abrasions, it may be appled in its full strength or diluted with one to three parts water; it also forms a useful application in simple disorders of the skin.

In all cases of fever, where the patient suffers so greatly from the parched condition of the mouth, nothing seems to afford so much relief as a mouth-wash made by adding a teaspoonful of Listerine to a glass of water, which may be used ad libitum.

As a gargle, spray or douche, Listerine solution, of suitable strength, is very valuable in sore throat and in catarrhal conditions of the mucous surfaces; indeed, the varied purposes for which Listerine may be successfully used stamps it as an invaluable article for the family medicine cabinet.

Special pamphlets on dental and general hygiene may be had upon request.
