Can a person use a mouthwash that contains alcohol?



Alcohol is divided into 3 types:

1) Naturally formed ethanol, found in very small quantities, in most fruits and plants.

2) Ethanol formed from the carbohydrate fermentation process.

3) Ethanol formed from other petro-chemicals.

The type of alcohol normally used in products of which its purpose is not for consumption is made from industrial petro-chemicals and not from the carbohydrate fermentation process. According to scholars, this type of alcohol is not impure and can be used
