Listerine is challenging families to improve their oral care and Rosie and I are taking the challenge!

Sounds easy?  Why don’t we do it?  It needs to become a habit and by accepting this challenge – I’m hoping that we will establish the habit!  For me, I grew up brushing twice a day and I still do that, but the flossing and rinsing… well, not-so-much.  Did you know that brushing alone misses as much as 75% of the germs in your mouth?  Adding a therapeutic mouthwash is an essential step in proper oral care.  I try.  I do well for a bit then fall off again.  I’m truly planning that by doing it twice a day consistently for two weeks we will establish a routine and a habit.
Okay, heading upstairs to do it now.  An added benefit?  I won’t be tempted to eat/snack because I’ve already brushed my teeth.  Yes!  I love double-duty habits.  brb
Ah!  It felt good!  This is what I did:
  • put a new head on my electric toothbrush
  • actually listened to the two minute timer thingie and brushed for two minutes
  • flossed
  • used tongue scraper
  • rinsed with Listerine Smart Rinse
Rosie said she doesn’t want to do it until bedtime, so when I came downstairs, my inner child came out and said, “My mouth feels good! Nonny, nonny, boo, boo!”  *sigh* Someday, I will grow up!
Day One, well, really Day Half:  Success!
Join me on the challenge – you know you need to do it!  If you want more information about oral care and Listerine, go to the Listerine website.  And I promise I won’t say, “nonny, noony, boo, boo” if you skip now and then!  There’s a coupon for $1 off Listerine Mouthwash – click here.
