Mouthwash and Fasting
According to Hanbali school Can we use mouth wash during fasting to avoid inconvenience to my colleague during working hours. My mouth produce very bad smell even I brushed my teeth.
Non-alcoholic mouth wash can be used but one must ensure that the mouth has been rinsed thoroughly and there be no remnants of the mouthwash left. It is highly recommended to use normal siwaak.
