Q:

Which mouthwash is better at whitening: Listerine or Crest?

A:

Teethwhiteningathome.com rated both Listerine Whitening Restoring Fluoride Rinse and Crest 3D White Multi-Care Rinse a 3.5 out of 5 in whitening ability. Listerine Whitening Pre-Brush Rinse was rated a 3 in whitening ability.

Women's Day rated Listerine Whitening Pre-Brush Rinse 2.6 out of 5 for whitening ability. Listerine Whitening Pre-Brush Rinse and Listerine Whitening Restoring Fluoride Rinse both use hydrogen peroxide as a bleaching agent. Listerine Whitening Restoring Fluoride Rinse and Crest 3D White Multi-Care Rinse contain the same three bleaching agents that are found in Crest Whitening strips, but the rinse is only in contact with the teeth for a very short time, which may not be sufficient for removing stains.

    How do you get rid of garlic breath?

    A:

    According to Breath MD, the most effective way to alleviate garlic breath is to thoroughly brush your teeth, scrape you tongue, floss between the teeth and then use a mouthwash.
