Join Me and Take the Listerine 21-Day Challenge

Listerine 21 Day ChallengeI remember the day I started flossing regularly like it was yesterday. About 20 years ago I went in for a cleaning and the hygienist told me “You know, we can tell when you only floss before coming to the dentist.” I was embarrassed but she was right and I could not argue with her. Back in those days I only flossed before the dentist or if I got something stuck in my teeth. That hygienist proceeded to tell me that brushing is only a small part of overall oral health. She basically scared me into a healthy routine which included brushing at least twice a day and flossing once a day. But in recent months I have come to realize that even this is not comprehensive enough. Thanks to my genetics and maybe other factors I am now fighting against periodontal disease. It isn’t very advanced but I am now taking my oral health even more seriously. So when I got the opportunity to participate in the Listerine 21-Day Challenge, I knew I had to take it.

The two Listerine products you see up there? Those will remain on my bathroom counter for 21 days as my family takes part in this challenge. It is a simple challenge really: rinse with Listerine twice a day for 21 days and see what happens. Brushing alone misses 75% of your mouth. Maybe your mouth still feels dirty after you brush? Maybe your kids miss a lot when they brush? What ever your situation, why not participate in this challenge?

As part of this challenge, I swung by Target and picked up several Listerine products. I honestly had no idea that Listerine made mouthwash for kids. The children’s version has no alcohol in it and comes in fun flavors like Mint Shield (featuring the Avengers) and Bubble Blast. My kiddos cannot wait to start using it tonight!

One fun part of this campaign is the #SwishSelfie.” While you are swishing tonight take a selfie and post it to Listerine’s Facebook page. For every Swish Selfie posted, Listerine will make a $5.00 donation to Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America, up to $85,000. I was just over on the Listerine Facebook page and it looks like they are giving out a weekly $500 prize for #SwishSelfie posts. So get those phones ready and snap away.

Target has a ton of Listerine products including many different mouthwashes, breath strips, and even toothpaste. Head over to Target today to get started in the Listerine 21-Day Challenge.

Disclosure: 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. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.

    Glad you put something up about oral hygiene. It is so important! Good post!

  2. Please let us know how it goes and if your kids will get used to the taste. My son hates ‘regular’ Listerine even if I dilute it with water.

    Always use Listerine.

  4. Hmm. I really do need to floss more.
