Home Remedies For Lice

Will Listerine Mouthwas Kill Lice Eggs?

I keep on reading about this method and sometimes it includes vinegar as well.  I phone Listerine customer service on their customer servvice 01344 864042 and they stated that on no circumstances would they recommend the us of any of their products for the treatment of head lice and lice eggs.

The reason that mouthwash and vinegar does not work is that many mouthwashes contain alcohol and vinegar contains diluted alcohol products both of which evaporate as soon as it leaves its container.  The velocity of the liquid is far too thin to cover and suffocate the louse and egg and both will be dry on the hair in a short time depending on the ambient temperature of the room.

Head lice can hold their breath for up to eight hours, alcohol will not penetrate the body of a louse before evaporation of the liquid takes place.


The other part of using mouthwash and/or vinegar is the fact that it is very painful if it gets into the eyes and ears and can burn the scalp on contact with sensitive skin.

The only part of this method that will remove head lice and lice eggs is the combing, which needs to be done every three days.

Let me put it this way I certainly would not put such potentially painful liquids on my daughter head.
