Researchers from Cardiff University have conducted a study and have found that common mouthwash has the ability to kill the coronavirus in 30 seconds or less. The study found that mouthwashes that are purchasable over-the-counter and have 0.07 percent cetypyridinium chloride (CPC) show "promising signs" of being able to kill coronavirus.

So, how did the researchers discover this? The scientists mimicked the environment of the human nasal cavity and oral passage in a test tube. The researchers then added the common mouthwashes such as Dentyl and Listerine to the test tube and observed the results. Below you will find comments from Dr. Nick Claydon, a specialist periodontologist, who spoke to the BBC.

Dr. Nick Claydon said, "If these positive results are reflected in Cardiff University's clinical trial, CPC-based mouthwashes ... could become an important addition to people's routine, together with hand washing, physical distancing and wearing masks, both now and in the future".

"This study adds to the emerging literature that several commonly available mouthwashes designed to fight gum disease can also inactivate the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus (and other related coronaviruses) when tested in the laboratory under conditions that are designed to mimic the oral/nasal cavity in a test tube," he said.
