Don’t know about gums but most definitely yes for throat, especially for folks like me who has tonsil. Definitely alcohol based! Good old Listerine. I do it once a fortnight or something though. For regular usage nothing beats lukewarm water and salt combo.

A tiny piece of alum (fit-curry) in warm or cold water.

When I used this formulation, I realized that all commercial mouthwash are scams.
All my family members use this only.

Alum is best disinfectant for mouth/skin/nails.
My sis got rid of fungal infection of nails washing with hot water+Alum when none of medicine worked.

Oh really! They use that thing, fitkari in them cheap saloons which i always despised, mostly because they use the same piece for everybody other than the product itself. Mum said it’s a great disinfectant, but didn’t bother myself, kept using after shave lotions for years and now i have darkish cheek. So the thing works for oral stuffs too huh, hmm might consider it.

I don’t think mouth wash are scams by any stretch of imagination, especially the alcohol based ones, but if desi/ ancient old methods work better then new ones I’m all in for it.

You can keep a personal piece of alum to carry in salons.
Available for 10rs/pc in local stores.

Alcoholic mouthwash dries up your mouth and can lead to cancer.
Just use a little salt and few drops of lemon in a glass of lukewarm water, take in your mouth, rinse well and throw out.

Ha ha this is a good idea. I do carry the other stuffs for them to use and still even after 10 years I am still laughed at, so will just add a fitkari along with the rest Lol.
