LISTERINE 21-Day Challenge: The Results!

You may remember that a little over three weeks ago I shared that Shane & I would be starting the LISTERINE 21-day Challenge. Well, it’s all over & I’m ready to share how we did!

Listerine 21-Day Challenge

I have to admit that I still don’t floss every day, but I definitely do it more days than not now. I used to only floss once or twice a week but now it’s at least every other day. &While I already used LISTERINE mouthwash at night, even before the challenge, I am now using it in the morning- and swishing for the entire 30 seconds each time. At first that was a tricky thing to accomplish because the mouthwash does tingle a bit {in that way that you can just imagine the germs in your mouth meeting their untimely demise} but I got over that within a couple of days.

Listerine 21-Day Challenge- The Benefit

LISTERINE says that within just two weeks of using their mouthwash twice a day for thirty seconds each time, you could have up to 5x healthier gums- and I have to agree. My gums, while still not perfect, I’m sure, no longer bleed almost every time I brush my teeth. They still do once in awhile, but it’s not an all-the-time thing anymore. I can’t wait to see what changes occur in the next few weeks, since I fully plan on keeping up the routine.

Listerine UltraClean

I have always been a fan of LISTERINE but I have to say that I’m totally switching to their new UltraClean formula from now on. All of their mouthwashes are great, but this particular one is really strong {in a good way} & has a nice flavor to it- and most importantly, my mouth feels cleaner & stays that way for longer. I’m totally sold on it & plan on continuing to use it.

Shane did okay with the challenge, too. He is already great about brushing {even more so now that he has a super cool Phineas & Ferb toothbrush that we received for this challenge} and is too young for their mouth rinse, so we were focusing on flossing throughout this campaign. We did pretty good about flossing the first week- he didn’t like it, but eventually he’d let me do it- but he got off easy because he’s been sick for the last two weeks, so I haven’t been wanting to battle with him over flossing his teeth. When he’s better though, I plan on starting the challenge over with him since he really responded well to the chart & was proud to get his check marks every day- until he was too sick to care.
