One of the things the kids get every Christmas tends to be a toothbrush in their stocking. Now I don’t know about your kiddos, but mine have a bad habit of leaving their toothbrush someplace it can easily fall on the ground… and in the downstairs bathroom that means it far too quickly can come into contact with the cat litter (the cats kick it out often, and I can’t be there 24/7 to sweep it all back up.
In some cases, a toothbrush or two (or three… or four…) has landed in the cat box (eww) and I just tend to chuck them. At least if they’re cheap manual ones like they’ve tended to get. Though I know I could easily boil them, they also do get the basic manual tooth brush every 6 months from the dentist.
I have developed a bit of a preference for electric toothbrushes lately, but can’t really afford to get an overly expensive electric toothbrush for each kid. Only to have them put them far too easily in places where they can get nasty, broken, or damaged.
Thankfully ones with replaceable heads don’t have to be overly expensive items! The Arm & Hammer Spinbrush Truly Radiant battery powered toothbrush has an MSRP of $8.99! Plus you can buy additional heads once the original one wears down.
On top of a new toothbrush, you can never, ever have too much toothpaste when you have five kids and three adults in one household. Either somehow a tube goes missing (I don’t even…?!), it gets used up, or… and I hate when this happens… it falls in the floor and gets stepped on by someone sleepy. *sigh* So we always need a backup tube or five. >.>
Arm & Hammer came out with their Truly Radiant toothpaste in February 2014 and not only does it hep whiten your teeth, it helps strengthen Enamel as well. As someone who has never had very strong enamel (my baby teeth and some adults teeth came in with enamel hypoplasia) I need whatever help I can get in Enamel strengthening!
Here is some information from Arm & Hammer:
- Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant toothpaste helps remove 100 percent more surface stains than ordinary toothpaste and also helps smooth surface imperfections while restoring shine.
- Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant Spinbrushes feature elongated bristles for those hard-to-reach places, allowing them to remove 100 percent more plaque than manual toothbrushes.
- Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant Whitening Booster is easier to use, works faster and has 3x more whitening agent than a leading whitening strip.
