The Reason It's Called Listerine . . .

Ever wonder why Listerine is called Listerine? Well, it was in the 1870s that English surgeon Joseph Lister discovered that his patients had a much better outcome it he washed his hands and his scalpels before operating on them. He used stainless steel drums to hold the surgical instruments. Today, of course, we all know how important it is to clean the hands and remove colonies of bacteria. Thanks must go to Lister for starting us on this road to cleanliness.
