  • I bought this drugstore brand of mouthwash upon the recommendation of my sister who stands by its potent cleansing power, and indeed I had to agree, although, I found it too strong to be tolerable
  • I thought it was a ready-to-gargle type of oral rinse, when in fact, it’s a concentrated formula that needs to be diluted in water
  • I became accustomed to the burning and I learned to tolerate the sensation
  • What I like about this brand of oral wash amid its beyond-tolerable-strength, is that it’s fairly lasting a long time in my bathroom shelf, maybe due to its concentration so you consume it bit by bit

      A mouthwash really comes useful when all you need is a quick oral rinse after a light midnight snack. I commit to a strict post-dinner regimen which includes brushing right after eating the evening’s bounty and proceed to the nightly baths. I try to turn in early straight to bed but I always get tempted to turn the television on. So there I am watching tv while comforting myself with good food. Being such a loafer, I just cleanse my mouth with a gargle instead of brushing my teeth again; at least I don’t sleep with residual food stuck on the crevices of my teeth. I bought this drugstore brand of mouthwash upon the recommendation of my sister who stands by its potent cleansing power, and indeed I had to agree, although, I found it too strong to be tolerable.

      I had my own dose of stupidity because of deficit


      knowledge pertaining how the mouthwash was to be properly gargled. I still laugh at myself every time I remember what transpired the first time I reached for this mouthwash. I thought it was a ready-to-gargle type of oral rinse, when in fact, it’s a concentrated formula that needs to be diluted in water. So I stupidly poured the solution on my mouth without even checking the instructions and it felt like burning hell. I felt like I was gargling some poisonous green-dyed acid. My buccal cavity was tingling in pain then and it was badly scalded, but it wasn’t too bad to cause me serious oral injuries. A lesson learned, I realized it was a concentrated solution.

      My mouth felt so abraded after that, as if it’s been scrubbed off vigorously. Astring o-sol was really the strongest mouth wash I had gargled in my life. Even when ...


      • following the prescribed instructions of diluting it in liquid, I still find it probably 3 times more burning than the old Listerine wash I once had. Its alcohol content must be quite high. Rinsing with the solution is likened to a numbing sensation in the mouth while the tingling sensation feels like pricking needles but only in the first occasions of use. I became accustomed to the burning and I learned to tolerate the sensation. In a way, the solution leaves a satisfying feeling in the mouth, very refreshing and cool, even twice better than ordinary brushing. It doesn’t leave a bitter after-taste.

        I got the one in fresh mint which tastes a lot like peppermint flavor. I usually pour just 1/5 of the cap, a very small solution and diluted in more parts water. I tend to be compulsive when it comes to oral hygiene so it

        takes longer than 30 seconds for me to gargle. What I like about this brand of oral wash amid its beyond-tolerable-strength, is that it’s fairly lasting a long time in my bathroom shelf, maybe due to its concentration so you consume it bit by bit. The bottle lasted 2 months which was twice longer than the regular time it takes for me to use up one full bottle of mouth wash.

        It costs only 2 dollars for a bigger, ample size than the travel sized bottle. I was thrilled to finally end my affair with this product and search something else more mild in formula. If you have higher tolerance to stinging oral solutions, then Astring o-sol would be your best bet, otherwise, if you prefer a gentle rinse, then this would be the least on your list.
