Ingestion of mouthwash by children

This letter by Tamsin Wade and Alison Gammon (17 April, p 1078) wrongly stated that “The mouthwash … was a supermarket ‘extra strength’ own brand which contains 37% alcohol.” It should have stated that this type of mouthwash “may contain up to 37% alcohol.” The manufacturers of the mouthwash have informed the authors that it contained about 20-25% alcohol, which is still far more than what one would expect a child to have access to.
