The Listerine Oral Care Challenge – Update!


Four weeks ago, I posted about how my family was taking part in the Listerine Oral Care Challenge and here I am to give you an update on how it went!


I expected the challenge to go smooth as silk because I never forget to brush or floss…or so I thought.  When I started keeping track on paper I realized just how easy it is to skip a day of flossing here and there.  We never skipped brushing or rinsing but personally I would let flossing slide by.  My husband was right on track the entire time.  He is competitive and may have just wanted to show me up but he’s usually more on top of routines than I am anyway so I’ll give it to him.


While thinking a lot about oral health care through this challenge I remembered back to my pregnancy and how difficult it was to brush once a day.  I could rinse all day long but something about brushing wasn’t good for me (I’m sure you know what I mean!).  I have never been so thankful to have Listerine!  Okay, I don’t know why but I just wanted to share that.


After the challenge my mouth feels cleaner and healthier.  They say that a habit is formed in 20 day and well, I would say that after the 30 days of this challenge I have a new routine formed.


This challenge has also been a good reminder to brush my little one’s gums.  She’s at the age where her teeth will be popping through any day and it’s now that I need to start a good routine of cleaning her mouth and making sure I don’t give her a juice sippy cup to carry around or go to sleep with.  I want to raise her with good oral habits so she’ll never be afraid of the dentist’s chair.


Reach floss


This challenge was very good for my family.  We had a common goal to unite us and we had fun keeping each other accountable.  We were able to try flavors of Listerine and different types of floss than we normally buy.  By the way, the Reach woven floss {the pink one} is incredible!!!  I’ve never used a floss that was so gentle on my gums and it didn’t leave my mouth tasting waxy.  You seriously should try it!
