Should you rinse your mouth after using mouthwash?

Hi AskDr, does it make it ineffective if I rinse my mouth with water after gargling with mouth wash?

Hey Cyeap! 
Thank you for your question. 
It’s always best to rinse with mouthwash then wait 30’mins before rinsing with water or eating or drinking anything just to give your mouth that time to absorb the antibacterial benefits from the mouthwash. Hope that helps!
