My family has been participating in the LISTERINE/REACH Oral Care Challenge. The goal of the challenge is to brush, floss, and rinse with mouthwash twice a day for three weeks improving oral health and teaching the importance of taking care of your teeth. Most of the time everyone around here is pretty good about brushing twice a day. Not so much on the flossing and rinsing, but we are working on it.
I LOVE< LOVE< LOVE the Agent Cool Blue by LISTERINE! It has to be my favorite product that they have ever made. You use it before brushing and it tints your kids teeth blue so that the child can see where they still need to brush…and I can easily see where they still need to brush. Best product ever, I am tellin ya! I also like the Smart Rinse that provides extra protection against cavities, cleans the mouth like the regular LISTERINE and strengthens teeth 99% better than brushing alone. It comes in Pink or Green, you can even get a bottle with Barbie or Batman on it which makes for a great Stocking Stuffer!
Speaking of Stocking Stuffers, my kids all get a new toothbrush in their stocking every year. Without fail. Because it is a tradition, they know it will be there and it isn’t going to be a surprise…but after going through this Oral Care Challenge and trying out the REACH TOTAL CARE + Whitening Toothbrush, Erin has specifically asked for that toothbrush to be in her stocking. It whitens and removes stains using an exclusive Calcium Carbonate Micrawhitening technology. It also has a tongue cleaner which we have come to love having on our toothbrushes.
I have two personal favorites that I have found as a result of taking part in this challenge. I have learned that I really like using a flosser vs. hand-held floss. It’s like having a piece of floss attached to a toothbrush and makes it MUCH easier for me to handle. Me and hand-held floss usually results in disaster, I get frustrated and say forget it. I have also learned that I like the new LISTERINE ZERO mouthwash. It is less intense than the original varieties and contains no alcohol. For me, that is huge since I try not to buy any products that contain alcohol.
What have we learned? We have all learned how to properly take care of our teeth thanks to LISTERINE and REACH. We have all learned that we don’t all like the same size toothbrush, the same mouthwash or the same toothpaste. Knowing what our personal preferences are has made taking care of our teeth a much more pleasant experience.
The makers of LISTERINE and REACH have also teamed up with America’s Toothfairy to launch “Trick or Treat for America’s Toothfairy,” a campaign to raise awareness of pediatric dental disease and help provide life changing care to under-served children.
