Fight Those Cavity Creeps!

Do you have a hard time getting your kids to brush their teeth? Well, I discovered this marketing gimmick cool new invention and now even bedtime is easier. That's right, I said BEDTIME IS EASIER! My boyz love, love, love this product. Ever since Eldest saw a commercial for it, he'd been obsessing and asking incessantly for the "new blue mouthwash for kids".
The premise is that kids are supposed to rinse with this mouthwash before brushing their teeth. It leaves a blue coating where plaque has accumulated so the kids know where to scrub hardest. Eldest can do it correctly on his own. He fills the cup to the line and then gargles for 30 seconds. Middle? Not so much. He completely swallows it, but it still manages to leave a nice blue ring around his mouth. And I'm not letting Baby anywhere near the stuff. I suspect if I did, he would instantly transform himself into a Smurf.
I only let the boyz use it right before bedtime, so since the novelty hasn't (yet) worn off, they actually get psyched when it's time to go upstairs for teeth and bed. You know what? For $3.99, it's soooooo worth it. This is not a paid advertisement for the stuff, but it should be, huh? If you'll excuse me, I need to go now so I can contact Listerine to become their new spokesmodelmom.

I am going to have to get this. I don't know how much brushing Hannah actually gets done and this would give her a better idea of what to do!!

Oh, we use Agent Blue and thank God for an other blue agent, Windex, to clean up after the swishing and brushing! We have seen an improvement in our oldest brushing!

I've heard of it but haven't purchased any. My oldest has always had great check ups at the dentist so I thought eh, who needs it. Then baby, at 4, has two cavities. Oh no. Maybe we do need it. Thanks for the tip!

Just wanted to let you know that I went to the listerine website to find out more info about Agent Cool Blue and saw that it has been recalled. The listerine website doesn't say exactly why but they mention individuals with suppressed immune systems having greatest potential for harm. Sorry to break the news if you didn't already know, just want to make sure everyone's kids are safe!
