    I'm on Day 3 and I'm a little confused so I have some questions and i was hoping you could help me out.

    What brands of mouthwash can we use?

    Can we eat pepper and salt?

    What teas can you drink?

    Should the teas be in a teabag or in leaf form?

    I am sorry these probably sound like really stupid questions but I have heard differing reports on all of these things so I just want to be sure.

    Thank you

    there is no such thing as a stupid question. its a big learning curve for all of us at the begining. i am not too sure of the answers and i know someone will reply for you.

    i dont think you can have salt - not sure about pepper.

    dont think it makes a difference re teabgs or leaf

    think mouthwash is listerine

    as i sais someone who is more definite will reply. good luck in your journey. nremember no question is stupid. the chances are someone else has previously asked it anyway

    You can have pepper but no salt, you can also have a bit of chilli if you want. Any LEAF tea is allowed, nothing made from berries or flowers. Some teas include: white tea, redbush tea, peppermint, nettle, normal tea. Im pretty sure toothpaste is ok so long as you dont eat it!!!

    Regarding the 'leaf' thing - just in case there's any confusion. Any tea you have must be made from the leaf of the plant - ie you can't have tea like cammomile (sp?) which is made from flowers or rose hip which is made from berries but you can have things like peppermint, nettle, green (with no other flavouring in), redbush (rooibos) or anything made from leaves but it doesn't have to be in leaf form, it's okay if it's in a teabag.

    You can have Listerine (original only), Listerine strips or Oraldene. There may be others as well but I'm definite about these.

    You can't have salt and the pepper question is debatable. Many of us have been told we can and have had it with no apparent adverse consequences. Others have been told that they can't have it as it comes from berries. I'd say if you can do without it do so - just in case - but if you can't stomach the soup without it then have a bit and see what happens.

    And like everyone has said - there's NO such thing as a stupid question! :) x

    My understanding is that the leaves are cut off as they're bitter and it's the stalk that's used to make the tea.

    I might be wrong but I wouldn't chance it myself just in case. x
