I helped him brushed his teeth.
I gave him water.

"Rinse your mouth with water."
"Rinse your mouth."


Do they sound natural?

I think 'with water' is implied, so the second one sounds more natural to me.

You could add 'now' to soften the tone, otherwise it sounds a little bit severe.

(While handing him a glass of water): "Now rinse your mouth"
