obviously brushing, flossing and using a tongue cleaner (brushing the tongue is not enough) is extremely important. however, I stopped using mouthwash (especially that "listerine") a long time ago. Do these mouthwashes actually do anything? If not, why are there loads in supermarkets? It's cheaper to chew on fennel seeds or the like than using so called "mouthwash". On that point, why isn't flossing an absolute must these days?

I use it sometimes, but I feel as if it is not that necessary

Listerine is acidic and therefore dissolves your enamel. Alkaline mouthwashes should be used.

It's not a necessity and I don't use it but I mean if people want to feel unnecessarily reassured then go for it.
Listerine was originally invented as a floor cleaner and they made up a term to try and sell it to people as a mouthwash, there is literally no point to it existing. Have a watch:
