Mouthwash to take out corona virus in saliva

seens to be a no doubter for effect, it will not treat a lung infection but it kills SARS virus within 30 seconds when rinsed for mouth care. The Cardiff crew is great and very focused and very forefrontin Covid research. It is not truly treatment as much as it is prevention, but I am gong to take it up and ask that my unproven covid patients rinse before I stick a tube in their mouth.

Colgate has a lot of products iwth cetyl pyridinium (CPC), logical target site and cheap treatment: Crest pro mouth wash, Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash Alcohol Free Multi-Protection Fresh Mint

any mouthwash with .07% cetyl pyridinium (CPC)

So is old school Listerine a good mouthwash for this? My parents and grandparents always swore by it, so I’ve always done the same. Tastes fairly close to gasoline but I’ve always figured no bacteria could possibly survive Listerine

Nope. Listerine contains thymol, eucalyptol, menthol and methyl salicylate. None of which are the chemical Ray mentioned.

Colgate Swish

or Crest Pro Wash have teh cetyl pyridinium, that is the key viral killer.

Ok thanks guys. Good info

I had some dental work a month ago at 2 different offices in Gentry and Roger’s and both required a rinse before seating.

I’ve been using Colgate Total and Crest Pro Health for years. Twice a day. I can’t remember the last time I had a cold much less the flu or the Wu.

Great stuff and thanks for posting! Anything to potentially help prevent getting the Rona is good to know! Much appreciated!!!

Been using Crest Pro and Scope forever. Bye bye scope and stocking up on Crest Pro now.
Thanks for the info.

Actually Scope has the right chemical, CPC.

Ingredients: Water, Alcohol (15 Wt%), Glycerin, Flavor, Polysorbate 80, Sodium Saccharin, Sodium Benzoate, Cetylpyridinium Chloride, Benzoic Acid, Blue 1, Yellow 5

The report said it must have at least .07% Cetylpyridinium. Might want to check for that.

Crest Pro Health, which is what I use, does.

The active ingredient in Crest Pro-Health Rinse’s formula is 0.07% Cetylpyridinium chloride ( CPC ). The active ingredient in Crest Pro-Health Rinse has been recognized as safe and effective by an FDA advisory panel.

Website doesn’t list the percentage of CPC, but 0.07% isn’t much. In a 32mL bottle of mouthwash, that amount of CPC is one-44th of a milliliter, which is literally less than half of a droplet (20 drops per mL).

This is what my dental hygienist told me to use.
