The Family That Flosses Together Stays Together

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LISTERINE. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

Oral Care Listerine

You may remember I shared with you that we have added a few LISTERINE products to our oral care routine.  It has been a few weeks, and I’m happy to report that things are going well!  Both Ollie and Ruby were already great at brushing their teeth at least twice daily.  Ollie has been using mouth rinse for about a year now but we wanted to get Ruby into that habit as well.  I added the LISTERINE ULTRA CLEAN ACCESS FLOSSER to my daily routine and love it.

Listerine Kids Rinse

As a family, we were looking to improve on our rinsing and flossing habits and I can say that we certainly have done that.  LISTERINE SMART RINSE ANTICAVITY FLUORIDE RINSE is in use daily for Ollie and Ruby.  Ollie was already in the habit of rinsing but it has taken a little getting used to for Ruby.  I make sure to remind her each time not to swallow any since she is new to the process.  I have to be honest and say that it’s still a work in progress with her as she just hasn’t gotten used to this particular flavor.  She is a real trooper and still does her rinsing most days, though!  It is so beneficial to little ones, our doctor recommended it as soon as Ollie turned 6.


The big surprise in this healthy habits process was that Ollie starting asking about the flosser right away.  “Mom, what’s that?  Can I try it?”  I showed him how to use the LISTERINE ULTRA CLEAN ACCESS FLOSSER and he asks to use it every day!  I am so proud that he has taken an interest and thrilled that it really is easy for him to use even at the age of 7.  I make sure to watch and help while he flosses, since he is still learning.

The LISTERINE HEALTHY WHITE FLOSS has been working out great for me every day. Adding this step that has been sadly neglected for a while, has made all the difference.  I can be confident that my teeth and gums are getting all that they need.  I can feel the difference as well.  I’m thrilled to do all that I can to preserve a smile that I have always been proud of.  The flat floss with cool micro-grooves helps remove gross plaque and has baking soda for whitening.

These LISTERINE products have made healthy oral care habits easy to keep up.  We are really doing a great job as a family and will continue our healthy habits routine.  Our dentist will certainly be impressed at our next visits!

      It really is worth it to take the extra steps daily to preserve your teeth and gums. Adults and little ones!

    I am one of those weird people who actually LOVES oral hygiene. My mom was a dental hygienist, so I think it’s just in my blood – or my gums 😉 Flossing has become so much easier since they invented those stick flossers. Gotta love em. Your kids are too sweet!

      Awww, thanks! That’s too funny, flossing is in your blood! Once you get into the routine your feel just awful if you miss a step. I can really feel it in my teeth and gums.

    Our dentist preaches this with our kids every single time we go for a cleaning. My daughter has deep grooves in her teeth and really needs the rinse to protect against bacteria growth.

      Yes, our dentist recommended it right away for Ollie since his teeth were just prone to cavities. It has helped tremendously!

    My husband loves these flossers! He does not like traditional floss so getting these has been a good thing! They are handy easier to use and far less messy. I have also enjoyed your other posts about Listerine! We have two different mouth washes in this house because I like the citrus but my husband likes the original flavor. Thanks for the posts!

      Oh, citrus? I don’t think I’ve ever tried a citrus rinse. I am enjoying the Healthy White Rinse right now!
