Favorite Things Friday - Toothbrushes and Mouthwash

 Today, we are going to tackle Oral Hygiene.  Okay, not really, but I did want to share two of my favorite new things that have to do with Oral Hygiene.  It is not unusual for me to use the same toothbrush forever. I mean, until the bristles fall out and it is FUNKY.  Why do I do this? I have no idea.  But, when I was at the drugstore the other day, I decided to pick up a new toothbrush.
I usually pick out a toothbrush based on color. Isn't that the way we always did it as a kid at the dentist's office? The hygienist asks  you what color you want, and you pick from the three toothbrushes they are holding outstretched in their hands.  If you were lucky, one of the three is your favorite color. And if you weren't lucky, you were stuck using the ugly toothbrush for the next 6 months until your next dentist's visit.
I didn't pick based on color this time. I chose one that looked cool. This one looks like serious business. It looks like plaque is no match for it.  It looks like maybe, just maybe, after brushing, I will feel a little bit like I just left the dentist's office with nice, clean-feeling teeth!
Guess what - it is the best toothbrush I have ever used. I love it. If you can say that you love a toothbrush.
Colgate 360 Sensitive Pro Relief

My other favorite item is Tom's Mouthwash.  I have never been a mouthwash fan. Basically, I think it tastes awful. And the awful taste stays with you.  I picked up this bottle of Tom's the other day at Sprouts.  I love it. Why did I choose it specifically?  What can I say, I chose it because it says "wicked fresh". And, it is. It tastes great, and it works. And you don't feel like you gargled with something full of alcohol and chemicals. Ewww.  It is fresh. Wicked Fresh! ;)
