A few weeks ago, I took the kiddos to Walgreens and we stocked up on new toothbrushes, mouthwash and dental floss to help us out in the Listerine Challenge. Now, I have almost completed my LISTERINE 21-Day Challenge. This challenge is to remember to swish with mouthwash morning and night for 21 consecutive days. I used LISTERINE® Cool Mint mouthwash and noticed my mouth felt cleaner for longer. I didn’t put a timer on it, but the minty freshness from my morning swish would last almost until lunchtime every day.
Letting kids pick out a new toothbrush is just one way to help them get excited about taking care of their teeth. Check out these other helpful tips for encouraging kids to brush and rinse. We also made up a fun rinsing game that only works with LISTERINE® SMART RINSE® for Kids.
Update on my preschooler’s cavity mouth: I have been doing my best to brush my 3-year-old’s teeth morning and night. Sometimes he runs away from me – he thinks it is hilarious when I chase him around the house with his toothbrush. At least I get a little bit of a workout! We finally found a toothpaste flavor he likes to use (he’s very anti-mint flavors.) He goes back to the dentist for a check-up in June. I am crossing my fingers he will not have any cavities next time. I just have to keep up our regular brushing routine and hope for the best.
Some days I really don’t like taking the extra time to floss my teeth. I started flossing daily about a year ago. I do skip a day every now and then, but I really try hard to keep up this good habit. My dentist can tell a difference and flossing has helped me have better dental check-ups. I notice that my teeth just don’t feel as good if I don’t floss.
Until recently, I didn’t realize LISTERINE® made a dental floss. I have been using it the past few weeks and I have to say, I am a fan. The LISTERINE UltraClean Mint floss is very comfortable to use on my gums. The floss glides in between teeth very easily. It also has microscrubbers that help clean in-between teeth.
I’m swishing with LISTERINE® every day and organizing my stuff.
The LISTERINE® 21-Day Challenge isn’t just about me developing healthy oral care habits. I have also been getting daily tips e-mailed to me from organizational expert, Peter Walsh. Last week, his tip inspired me to take a few minutes and clean out my junk drawer. It was something I needed to do, and his helpful hints made the task seem possible. So I did it!
