    Hello
    Have a question about mouthwash. Are we allowed it on LL? MY LLC says no but I usually use it and am missing it. So are my gums which have started bleeding again since I stopped. I use an alcohol-free one.

    Where does everyone get their freshener sprays from? I've tried Boots and supermarkets and they seem to be few and far between. Also haven't since the Listerine strips anywhere, do they still exist?

    Am desperate to get myself minty before I have to breathe over people at work tomorrow!

    Mouthwash is fine as long as you don't swallow it! If you think about it, sprays and Listerine strips are worse (although still fairly innocent unless you're using lots), because unless you spit afterwards, you are going to swallow whatever you put in your mouth...whereas with mouthwash you're always going to spit it out afterwards.

    Gold spot seems to be officially ok - I used that for a while with no falling out of ketosis. I also use Listerine mouth wash and spit it out. But generally I try and wash my teeth more too.

    In my LL record book it says, "Unlimited toothpaste and mouthwash" so I don't know why your LLC is against it. I think it is essential to use it!

    thanks for the reassurance, I couldn't really see what the issue was with it, but LLC wasn't keen

    think I'll stick with it anyway ...
