Listerine Challenge Post 2 (follow-up)

A few weeks ago my family decided to take the Listerine Oral Care Challenge.  You can find my first post here.  The idea of the challenge was to improve the oral care habits of everyone in my household.  Now I can tell you how thats working and what we are using.  My family needed improvement in flossing.  They are now flossing more, which is a great improvement, but we still haven't met our goal of twice daily but at least we are flossing once a day.  Listerine and Reach help to make this challenge a breeze with product kit I received.

Let me tell you about it.  We were sent Reach children's toothbrushes.  Designed for use with children 3 and older, they sport the characters of Batman, Barbie, and Phineas & Ferb.  They have soft bristles, small head design, and an ergonomic handle.  All designed to help your child get the best brush possible.

I also was sent Reach Total Care Floss for the kids.  The Micro-Groove technology work to remove 2X more plaque than other floss products.  The soft filament is gentle on teeth and gums, provides a comfortable grip, and won't shred while flossing.  It comes in mint flavor.

To Finish up a great dental hygiene routine we needed a great post-brush rinse.  For that the kids received Listerine Smart Rinse.  As a Mom, I love that lab studies show that Smart Rinse strengthens teeth 99% better than brushing alone.  The kids love that they feature Barbie and Phineas & Ferb and flavors such as Berry Shield and Mint Shield.

We, Mom and Dad, were sent our own tools to complete the challenge as well.  For brushing, we received a Reach Total Care + Whitening Toothbrush and a Reach Total Care Multi-action Toothbrush.  They both feature precision-grip handles with unique thumb hole, angled necks, and tongue cleaner (Hub's favorite feature).

For flossing, we got Reach Total Care plus Whitening floss.  This floss is designed to remove stains, such as coffee, tea, and wine.  This floss features baking soda and Micro-Grooves that work to remove 2X more plaque than other leading flosses.  We also got a Reach Access Flosser, which I feel is good for the whole family.  This is also the Dentist recommended flosser.  It features a flexible handle, which helps to floss hard to reach places.

For rinsing, Listerine gave us 2 options, Listerine Total Care Zero and Listerine Antiseptic.  Listerine Total Care Zero is less intense because it contains zero alcohol.  This anticavity fluoride rinse restores enamel, strengthens teeth and kills germs.  Listerine Antiseptic is clinically proven to kill germs and is the only nationally branded antimicrobial mouthwash to receive the ADA Seal of Acceptance for fighting plaque and gingivitis.

Now that your informed, I challenge you and your family to improve your oral health.
