    Another great use for Listerine is to stop the terrible itching from Florida’s poison ivy. After listening to your Sept. 22 radio show I decided to try it since both hydocortizone and the Technu recommended by our pharmacist had no effect whatsoever. The itching stopped immediately after applying a generic form of Listerine! Without your show it would never have occurred to me to try it. Thank you.

    Listerine for smelly pits. Gladly try this. At least no salts of Aluminum.
    But I do think about the dyes or other chemicals in mouth wash after years of use as an anti-deodorant. Any best guess what would be the active ingredient that stops odor from forming? Then only use this/these item[s].
