Please attach photograph. Caries can be prevented but once initiated needs to be filled. You can prevent caries by brushing twice daily,rinsing after every meal.

Hi tooth decay once started cannot be reversed . However it can be arrested at that stage for sometime . If there is cavitation you need to address it, just rinsing with anything may not help

Tooth decay can never be reversed. Only the progression can be checked by good oral hygiene measures like twice daily brushing, rinsing after every meal, flossing, using a mouthwash.
Next Steps
Kindly attach clinical picture of your teeth so that they can be assessed. Maintain oral hygiene and visit the nearest dentist once every 6 months for evaluation.
