Mouth Rinse (gargle) to battle Covid?
Dr. Been thoughtfully reviews 3 studies (see link below) which demonstrate that mouth rinses may be very effective when gargled. High level takeaways (please see the video for more accurate info):
- 1st study is a small in vivo study of 20 hospitalized Covid patients. 9 of 10 using a mouth gargle had complete viral clearance in 6 days, compared to 1 of 10 from the control group.
- The other 2 studies are in vitro and test quite a number of different solutions, showing some have a very high efficacy
- Listerine Cool Mint stuck out to me as the most value in terms of accessibility and effectiveness.
- Although the in vivo study is very small it seems like a significant indicator. All in all I added Listerine to my regimen for the days after higher risk exposure.
- Does anyone know if further studies have been performed?
A bunch of us here heard about mouth washing and gargling from a recent FLCCC weekly update. They also talk about disinfectant nasal sprays.
Listerine is easy to find and I found Betadine sore throat gargle (povidone iodine) at a local pharmacy here in Canada. There were a few disinfectant nasal sprays too, but I’m ordering povidone iodine disinfectant liquid so I can dilute it and put it in reusable nasal spray bottles.
I don’t plan to use these every time I come home from a public place (some do). I’ll pull them out when it’s time to go to war.
ImmuneMist is another nasal and oral products recommended by the FLCCC
I recently purchased some but have not tried it yet.
I’m with hotsauce. While it is convincing that some mouthwashes can be effective at disrupting the virus, regular use of such mouthwashes seems likely to harm the mouth biome by killing helpful bacteria there. Like my horse paste, I only plan to add mouthwash to my regimen if I believe I’ve had a direct exposure to the virus or I begin experiencing symptoms.
Yes ImmuneMist.com and there is a 20 percent off code. Clubhouse20
It is ready to use sprays for nasal and oral.

FLCCC came out with a recent short video about how to dilute and use the 10% iodine solution.
İn it they say clearly not to inhale the 1% solution but to just drop it into your nostril and coat the inside of your nose then blow it out.
İ don’t think using an inhaler is a good idea. Unless you DO NOT inhale at the same time you squeeze the bottle.
