I did hear something about it being bad as it destroys the good bacteria.  But on the other hand it also would destroy the bad bacteria.  Anyone have links to any findings or have any advice?  Thanks

Most antibacterial mouthwash are probably bad from an overall health standpoint. Oral bacterial populations are necessary for the conversion of dietary nitrates to nitric oxide, and antibacterial mouthwash have been shown to prevent the blood pressure lowering effects of healthy vegetables (beet root in particular, but the same would likely apply to arugula and other vegetables).

Here's something from McGill University, 


Alcohol in mouthwashes doesn’t actually kill bacteria


I would recommend no mouthwash, period. If you (water) floss, brush, and scape, plus have a healthy oralbiome from probiotic yogurt or other oral probiotic, you really do not need anything but water to clean your mouth. Most toothpaste, mouthwash, etc., is damaging to your oral biome, and only serves to coats your mouth in flavor and toxic chemicals, killing the vulnerable bacteria, and leaving the resistant ones, much like an antibiotic does to your gut.
