Directions for use
Using mouthwash couldn’t be simpler. Fill the cap with the liquid and rinse your mouth for about 30 seconds. You need to use it moderately, however. Rinse your mouth no more than twice a day. Using mouthwash too frequently may dry out the mucous membrane and consequently damage it.
