Why does mouthwash burn so much?

    The alcohol in the mouth wash, which is listed as an inactive ingredient, is why it burns when you use mouthwash.

    The stinging feeling you get when you use mouthwash is probably due to the alcohol content. Over-the-counter mouthwash contains around 20-25% alcohol, which helps to kill germs when used properly. If the stinging is too painful, just brush your teeth instead – dentists don’t really agree with the claims that mouthwash can significantly improve oral hygiene. Mostly, it just helps to reduce bad breath.
