Step 1: The Infomercial


Step 2: The Items

One of the problems in buying Listerine at a big box store it comes in a bottle that's 1.5 litres, with a cover that holds maybe 3 oz of mouthwash, when all you need is about a ounce, and you waste
most of it, and if your like me in the morning, you spill more then you use!

I discovered that ACT (18oz) mouthwash's top fits the 1.5 liter Listerine bottle perfectly
which brought me to the idea of using the ACT bottle as a mouthwash dispenser for the listerine
(I'm not a big fan of the ACT mouthwash flavor) and at $4.00 a 18oz bottle or $3.89 for 3 times that amount...

    Waste of time. Quicker way: You can pull out the nozzle in the Act bottle with needle nose pliers, pour in your preferred mouthwash quickly (I use Dollar Trees verson of Act kids that has the same amount of fluoride, just bubblegum flavor). Then just pop the nozzle back in by pushing the stopper down with the same pliers.

    I have seen mouthwash "pumps" and other ways of just not pouring it out
    for me this idea was just a perfect way to get the exact amount of mouthwash
    and also save money by using less Listerine.

    why not forget the smaller bottle and just pour less into the larger cup of your original mouthwash?

    Or just use the ACT... I use it, it was recommended to me as better than Listerine by 2 different dentists.

    You're just re-using another brands more well-designed container. Still a great instructable! just underwhelming after the misleading title.

    I just take a swig from the big bottle myself.
