Last month, I told you about the LISTERINE® Challenge that I was taking part in, so now it’s time to tell you how it went. It was very easy to sign up, and you receive a coupon just for registering. The idea of the challenge is that you rinse with LISTERINE® twice a day, and “check in” each day at the challenge website. It simply asks if you rinsed today, and when you click YES, you get to spin a wheel for more chances to win $20,000‡ and a shot at daily prizes. It also provided me with some helpful daily tips on oral hygiene.
To help remind me to rinse and check in, I set the alarm on my phone. I use alarms for everything, like waking up, getting the kids to and from school, the kids’ bedtime, etc., so adding a couple more alarms wasn’t a big deal. I don’t know what I’d do without my phone!
I think the challenge was a great way to get me into the habit of rinsing twice a day to keep my mouth healthy. By completing this 2-week challenge, I helped to reverse early gum disease*. I know a lot of people think that bleeding gums are a result of brushing too hard, but did you know that it’s actually a sign of early gum disease? LISTERINE® TOTAL CARETM kills 99/9% of germs that cause early gum disease, so it leaves you with not only a fresh mouth, but healthier gums too.
The LISTERINE® Challenge runs from January 27th, 2015 to July 15, 2015 and is open to Canadian residents only. I hope you’ll give it a try like I did and let me know what you think.
Now, you can enter to win a LISTERINE® kit! It’s worth about $45, and contains all sorts of fun LISTERINE® products, like mouthwash, oral care mist, breath strips, and floss. I really love the breath strips and keep them in my purse all the time. This giveaway is open to Canadian residents only, excluding Quebec residents. Readers can enter across multiple blogs, but only win once. It will run until April 30 2015. Good luck!
