Chlorhexidine. Also known as N,N’-hexane-1,6-diylbis[N-(4-chlorophenyl)(imidodicarbonimidic diamide)]. Chemical antiseptic. Bactericidal to both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, as well as having bacteriostatic action. It also tastes bloody awful.

Unfortunately, I have a dental cavity and couldn’t get a dentist’s appointment until tomorrow morning. This means that mouthwash is necessary to keep this tooth clean until I can get it looked at. Mouthwash, brushing and eating very carefully.

Still, maybe next time I’ll buy a slightly less vile tasting mouthwash. Amusingly, a lot of mouthwashes are actually sweetened with sucralose
