To investigate the intra oral spread of an erythrosine mouthwash in relation to the rinsing period. Twenty subjects were randomly divided into two equal groups and asked to rinse with 1Oml erythrosine mouthwash for cumulative periods of 15, 30 and 60s (group I) and 30, 60 and 90s (Group m. Each rinsing session was followed by new plaque measurements. In group I there was difference observed between 15s, 30s rinsing period and 60s rinsing period. In group II there was difference observed between 30s, 60s and 90s rinsing period. Plaque score in 60s rinsing period in group I is more when compared to the 90s rinsing period in group II. Rinsing for 60s appeared to be sufficient for all plaque covered surfaces of the dentition to come into contact with the mouthwash.
