I received a Target gift card to purchase LISTERINE brand products from Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. and The Motherhood as part of my participation in the LISTERINE 21-Day Challenge. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.
I don’t know about the rest of ya’ll, but I HATE going to the dentist. I will do pretty much anything to make sure that the dentist doesn’t find anything wrong in my mouth. Last year I finally got my wisdom teeth out and haven’t been back since, but it’s getting to be about that time.
I have to admit that I don’t floss nearly as often as I should. It simply hasn’t become a habit and is just something that I do when I remember or if I have something stuck in my teeth.
Honestly, I also rarely use antiseptic mouth wash. I hate the way that it burns and always leaves me nearly in tears.
Listerine has challenged me to use their items, found at Target. For the next 21 days, I’m working hard to change those habits into good habits of remembering to do each step in cleaning my teeth. Brush, Floss, and Mouthwash. Did you know simply brushing your teeth misses 75% off the germs in your mouth? WOW! That’s a scary statistic!
My kids will also be changing their habits. They will be starting to use the LISTERINE SMART RINSE. I can’t wait to see how they do with it.
Taking part in the LISTERINE 21 Day Challenge also helps children in need. For every person who posts a “Swish Selfie” to LISTERINE Brand’s Facebook Page, LISTERINE Brand will make a $5.00 contribution to Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America program, up to $85,000 toward their goal of connecting 210,000 children with needed oral health services in 2014.
Will you join us in this challenge? What tips do you have to get your family to do more than just brush?
