I heard as well that mouth wash was supposed to be good. Can't say I have tried it yet though.

I am currently using malt vinegar and I also have a bottle with garlic in it, which I just keep refilling with water after I have used some. That way the garlic has time to marinade with the water.

I used to make my own with a bottle of apple cider vinegar, a few drops of citronella essential oil and I'd have a couple of cloves of garlic in the bottom of the spray bottle.

70ml citronella oil
