I participated in this sponsored campaign on behalf of REACH® and One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own.
When The Teen was a baby I read about the importance of having a “bedtime routine” to help little ones calm down from the day and get to bed easily. We started a bedtime routine when she was just an infant – dinner, playtime, bath time, brush teeth, read a book and then bed. When Midge was born, The Teen was still doing her bedtime routine, so we just added her right into the mix. It has made putting two girls to bed – even in the same room for nine years – a piece of cake.
I realized a few years ago that while I thought the girls were the only ones with the bedtime routine – but in fact I had one too. As soon as the girls are tucked into bed and given their “hugskiss” my bedtime routine begins. My routine is pretty different from theirs – it involves things like letting the dog out one last time and making sure all of the food in the kitchen is put away and the house is locked up. But the one thing that we have in common is brushing our teeth – every night. Without fail. A new study from REACH shows 82% of the nation’s moms never skip brushing their teeth every night. It is good to know that even as tired as we may be some nights, so many of us prioritize good hygiene!
If you know me, you know I am a little neurotic when it comes to dental hygiene, so I can say with conviction that there is never a night that I skip brushing my teeth – or a morning either. I just can’t. It will literally drive me crazy. But I know not everyone is as neurotic as I am, so I am glad to work with companies like REACH who make products that help to make remembering those mindless things like dental hygiene a breeze! Recently I had the opportunity to test out the new REACH Complete Care 8-in-1 Mouth Rinse and Complete Care Curve Toothbrushes. The Complete Care 8-in-1 Mouth Rinse helps kill germs and prevent gingivitis – but it also comes in an awesome pump dispenser which has a correct dosage cup and a toothbrush holder that you won’t find with any other mouth rinse. The rinse tastes great and doesn’t burn your mouth like so many others do, and is uniquely designed to target the problem areas in your mouth that your brush may be unable to reach. REACH helps you keep your vanity tidy and your mouth healthy – its a total win-win.
I have been very pleased to work the REACH Complete Care 8-in-1 Mouth Rinse into my Bedtime Routine every night. I may forget to take off my makeup some nights and I do not always remember to switch the laundry – but I never forget to brush my teeth. And now that I have the Mouth Rinse right there – I never forget to swish either – talk about an added bonus. The girls think it’s so cool – they each want one for their bathrooms now too. I guess REACH is making it’s way in to all of our routines.
