You may remember my post earlier this month talking about the Listerine Challenge that my family took. Now, you get to read all about our experience with the challenge :).
We were sent several products from Listerine and Reach for the purposes of this challenge. Some of those products were: floss, mouthwash and toothbrushes.
Since my boys are both too young to use any of the mouthwash products available, we focused on brushing and flossing every day with them. To make flossing easier, my husband and I used floss picks which made flossing between each of those little teeth a breeze and both boys were excited to practice flossing on their own. Every day they got to put stickers on their charts we got from Listerine and both of my boys did better at reminding me to help them brush and floss than I did at remembering! The stickers were a great incentive for them to want to brush and floss.
My husband and I did a fair job at remembering to brush, floss and rinse twice a day but once we got closer to the holidays I think we both just forgot to do the whole routine every morning. We did notice however that on days we didn’t brush, floss or rinse in the morning, our teeth felt considerably grosser at night! Now that we are home from traveling, we are going to try harder to get back into that routine.
I think that after doing this challenge, my entire family has been able to see the benefits of consistent oral care and I do hope that we will be able to make brushing, flossing and rinsing twice a day a good habit. I know that as long as we keep a sticker chart, my boys will be wonderful at reminding us to not only take care of their teeth but to take care of our own as well!
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Listerine and received a sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
