The Listerine 21 Day Challenge – The Thrill of New Smile

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.

It is thrilling to recognize you need to kick up your game and to find a way to do it.  Recently I heard about the Listerine 21-Day Challenge  and I am excited to be part of it. As the mother of four children, my husband and I participate in at least 8 dental visits each year. At a recent visit, the dentist talked to me about flossing and explained that most cavities develop between teeth because it is hard for brushes to get there and people do not floss adequately.  Dental care often has an impact on other areas of our lives. Some dental professionals estimate that brushing misses 75% of the mouth.

I received notice about the Listerine 21-Day Challenge as I was making appointments for another round of dental visits. I went to my local Target store and purchased the products I would need to participate in the challenge. I picked up Listerine Antiseptic, Listerine Whitening toothpaste and Reach floss.

As I began I thought realistically and honestly about my own dental care routine. I brush several times a day, but flossing and rinsing are often put off as I rush around to care for my family and obligations.  I was excited to participate in the challenge because I wanted to kick my smile up a notch and pay more attention to my personal needs. The fact that the challenge said it would only take an additional minute of effort each day to swish with Listerine Antiseptic also helped me think the challenge was something I could do. At my house we run around each morning getting up, dressed and ready for school and work. We cannot do an oral care routine that is time-consuming. There are too many people and not enough time.

I talked with my husband and kids about the Listerine 21-Day challenge and they wanted to participate as well. The kids were excited about being able to use the rinse and my husband just wanted to take my floss.  Another exciting fact is that the challenge will not only help my family get better oral hygiene, but my readers can participate and help  raise money for 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 care services in 2014.

I invite you to join me in this challenge and improve your own oral care and help children in need. The Facebook page for LISTERINE Brand is www.facebook.com/listerine. When you get there, you will learn more about the challenge, the partnership with Oral Health America and be able to check out the best “Swish Selfie” photos of the week.  I will be back at the end of the Listerine 21-Day Challenge to let you know how it worked out for our family. Please share how the challenge goes for your family.

If you are interested in learning more about Listerine and what they are doing to help children
join the conversation on February 25, 2014 on Twitter with hashtag #LISTERINE to talk about the 21-Day Challenge and your own ideas on good oral hygiene or even ask some questions.
In conclusion, it is thrilling to recognize you need to kick up your game and to find a way to do it. So, the question for you this thrilling day is, will you join me in the Listerine 21-Day Challenge?

  • Love Listerine! That's actually the brand of mouth wash I use daily :)

  • I have been hearing so much about this challenge! I love Listerine and it is the only mouthwash I will purchase for my family

  • I'm very optimistic for our results. We are taking the same challenge! Good luck to you.

  • Good luck with your challenge. I am sure it will improve your family's habits.

  • I did this challenge last year, too. It made me get better with flossing.

  • I love LISTERINE! It's such a great brand, and really helps us to keep our smiles healthy. Good luck with your 21 day challenge! It only takes 21 days to create a habit, so your family is already on the right path to great oral hygiene.

  • I love Listerine. I use it daily. And my teeth are super healthy because of it! :)

  • My husband and I use Listerine a lot, but didn't even know about the toothpaste? Will check it out nex time. Anyway, what a great challenge for a great cause. I must admit though I don't like this kind of floss, but I like the ones that are easy to use, I forgot the name, but the white stuff with the sharp pointy thing. LOL! I sure don't remember the name, but yeah. I just find this one (floss) so difficult to use for me so I chose the other instead.
