Hi,

Welcome to just answer

Listerine mouthwash has 26% alcohol, which is more than what is contained in beer and wine. Sometimes after using the mouthwash, a breath analyser test can come positive. But since this alcohol is not ingested, it usually decreases fast as is excreted faster from the body system

There are two types of mouthwash. One with alcohol and one without. Studies have shown that there is no difference in effectivity of both. So, in future shifting to mouthwash without alcohol might be better.

Hope this information is helpful

Regards
