Yes: Overuse of mouth rinses can cause changes in the salivary pellicle, or coating. A good soft tooth brush with mild flouride toothpaste, along with a little listerine daily is all you need. Sounds like you may be overdoing it.

Possibly: Try backing off those two products and replace them with something else for a while. If the problem goes away, try the old mouthwash for a while, then later the tooth paste to see if the saltiness returns.

Yes: Most likey the culprit is the baking soda toothpate. Switch to another brand that doesn't have the baking soda ingredient and see if that helps.
