I've actually not had the greatest brushing habits. I grew up very hit or miss when it came to brushing. I've gotten a LOT better but I remember being told when I was about 20 that if I continued the way I was going, that I would have dentures when I was 40. Yikes. 40 seemed like ages away then so I only got a LITTLE better. It wasn't until probably the last 10 - 15 years or so that I got much better with oral hygiene. Something about having kids probably did that to me. Still, I'm not a twice a day brusher. Neither is my family. I know we should be, but we're just not. Sigh.
Well, I've decided that my family and I are taking the Listerine 21 day challenge. So we headed to Target and picked up a bunch of Listerine products to help us with our goal. 21 days of brushing, flossing and rinsing. Twice a day. Think I can do it? Twice a day? For 21 days? I'm going to give it a shot! So who's with me? Who's ready to take the Listerine 21 day challenge?
I signed up and submitted my Swish Selfie on Facebook. Listerine will make a $5 contribution to Oral Health America's Smiles Across America program with a goal of connecting 210,000 children with needed oral healthy services. Plus, you could win $500. Very cool, huh.
So head on over to the Listerine Facebook page, submit your "Swish Selfie" and join me in the Listerine 21 Day Challenge!
We're going to have a blast doing this and hopefully in 21 days, we'll have formed a habit! I'll check in with you in a couple of weeks and let you know how my family is doing. I'll also be joining the Twitter party with the #LISTERINE hashtag to chat about the 21 Day Challenge and get some thoughts and tips for good oral hygiene.
After picking up our supplies, I took some goofy pictures of the kids and some future Listerine users!! Don't forget take a picture and join the 21 Day Challenge!
