De-Clutter Your Children’s Bathroom
Spring is here and it is the perfect time to go through your children’s bathroom and throw away old toothbrushes, old toothpaste containers and empty floss containers. Keeping old toothpaste containers around can be a breeding ground for bacteria and fungus. Along with toothbrushes that have not been changed in three months. Taking time to clean up the bathroom with your children can help encourage them to spend time brushing their teeth.
Even sprucing up the tooth brushing area, by purchasing a new toothbrush holder, or a new tooth brush, new toothpaste can help your children become excited again about being in the bathroom and brushing. But more importantly than that, is getting rid of old toothpaste containers that are harboring bacteria and old toothpaste around the top of the toothpaste container. Using old, dried toothpaste decreases the effectiveness of your child brushing their teeth.
Tooth enamel is a critical component to keeping your children’s teeth healthy. By changing out the toothpaste during the spring and getting rid of the old you ensure that the toothpaste your children are using is effective and doing its job.
