Step 1: Good Oral Hygiene…

Is of course very important. However most mouthwashes have childproof tabs that require you squeeze the cap in the right way in order to open it. It's a little annoying though. I do not have kids in my house so I am comfortable using this hack.

Step 2: Bring Out the Dremel

A cut off wheel on medium speed will make quick work of this plastic.

Step 3: Done!

There we go. A "jail braked" mouthwash.

    I've been doing this for years. I am glad that I am not the only one. I used a utility knife. Another fun mouthwash hack is to mix the antiseptic with the Anti-cavity using a 50/50 mix. Then you get full coverage.

    Read the ingredients label closely, I look for a composition which contains 21% or more alcohol, the main active ingredient. I then cut it 50/50 to a more palatable yet still potent rinse agent. Now that's how you hack mouthwash, a 2- fer money saver.

    p.s. house brands are far cheaper than the "designer" brands to begin with and no less effective, compare labels.
