Wash and rinse the mouth thoroughly.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
Spraying mosquito liquid in the mouth is not fatal. To remove the effects, wash and rinse the mouth thoroughly with fresh water. If there is any irritation in the throat then warm saline gargles can help in removing the traces of the liquid.
It can only cause a minor gastric disturbance. There is no need to worry.
I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you good health.
