With four kids I am constantly in a battle to keep their teeth as healthy as they can be, and I will admit my oral care routine could use some help too. In the morning, as we get ready for school, and at night when we get ready for bed, our house is shear chaos. Shuffling four kids through the bathrooms while I am trying to get ready myself is a nightmare, and things are definitely missed. I am glad to be getting together with Listerine to get our whole family on track with the Listerine 21 Day Challenge. If your house needs some help I urge you to join us on this adventure.
Did you know there are more germs in your mouth that there are people on the Earth? That is just disturbing! If you are brushing alone, you are missing about 75% of the germs! I brush regularly and use floss, but I don’t always use mouthwash, and that means there are lots of germs still hanging out in my mouth. My kids brush but don’t use rinse either. For my 6 year old I have to fight to get him to even use toothpaste! We need this challenge in our house to get us all on track with our oral health.
Having kids I knew getting them on board with this challenge would not be easy. But when the box from Listerine arrived I found it was easier than I expected. The kids immediately noticed the Phineas & Ferb picture on the outside and wanted to tear into the box. When they spotted the Perry toothbrush and mouthwash they tried to steal them away. Boy was that smart of Listerine! Without the characters I may have had more of a fight on my hands.
Starting this week we are embarking on a 21 Day Challenge to improve our oral health. We are doing this not only to help ourselves but to also help those in need. For every person who signs up for the challenge, the LISTERINE® Brand will make a contribution to help Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America program toward their goal of connecting up to 210,000 children with needed oral health services in 2013.* I have distributed our new Listerine products to each of the bathrooms and I have practiced brushing and rinsing with the kids. I will be a role model for the kids as well, making sure follow the challenge to a T.
So what do you need to do if you join this challenge? Just sign up online and then add only a minute of oral care to your daily routine. One minute! Twice a day we will be adding a 30 second rinse with Listerine Ultraclean Rinse. With just adding that we can make our gums 5 times healthier in just two weeks, and 9 times healthier in 4 weeks. My poor, beat up gums could really use that!
You too can pledge to improve your oral health within 21 days by brushing, flossing and using LISTERINE® ULTRACLEAN® twice a day, while also helping children in need across America receive oral care through Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America® program. To sign up jut head over to the Listerine Facebook page at https://www.facebook.
Make sure you check back with me when I wrap up the 21 day challenge to enter a giveaway for a Listerine Gift Pack and a $100 Walmart Gift Card!
*$6.40 will be donated for every person who signs up for the challenge, up to $64,000.
