The ‘Swish and Makan’ event is a reflection of LISTERINE®’s commitment to holistic oral care, helping to #CompletetheClean after one’s daily brushing routine. While brushing and flossing are important for removing plaque, they can quickly build up again, causing cavities, gum problems, and bad breath. Studies show that using LISTERINE® twice a day for 30 seconds kills 99.9% germs and reduces plaque 5x more than brushing and flossing alone. This highlights how LISTERINE® plays a key role in a full oral care routine.

While most Malaysians understand that basic mouth cleaning involves brushing our teeth, studies reveal that brushing alone only cleans 25% of your mouth.  Given the variety of foods Malaysians consume every day, the risk of mouth and gum problems is prevalent without good oral care routines – which includes brushing, flossing and rinsing. 

Dr Kayla Teh explains to members of the audience the importance of mouthwash for a complete mouth clean

Aside from helping kill germs and bad breath, rinsing with mouthwash has several other benefits as explained by dentist Dr Kayla Teh “By including rinsing with a mouthwash formulated with essential oils for 30 seconds in your daily oral care routine, twice a day – you can reduce plaque, and tartar and achieve healthier gums overall too”, she added.

Two (2) schools that were part of the event to be part of record-breaking moment

Two schools within the Klang Valley, Sekolah Kebangsaan Sungai Binjai and Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Kemuning 2, were part of the record-breaking attempt. To encourage younger Malaysians to include oral care and mouthwash in their daily routines, interactive sessions and informative demonstrations were conducted within the schools where they learned practical techniques for achieving and maintaining healthy smiles, reinforcing the importance of regular oral care routines with mouthwash.
