A Stay Healthy Tip

I thought that in light of the fact that we're not the only sick family out there, I would share one of my mom's stay healthy tricks. Listerine mouth wash is the trick behind this one. (We like vanilla mint.) Just fill a cup about 2", and stick your tooth brushes in (head down) over night. Make sure you rinse it well to get rid of the nasty taste, but otherwise you're good to go! It might not kill everything, but it does really help cut down on the germs left on your toothbrush, so your odds of re-infecting yourself are allot smaller!

Well, I've never heard that one before...but it sure sounds good:-) Perhaps we ought to give it a try!

Have a blessed Lord's Day!

That's a good idea! Especially to fight off day-to-day germ encounters. (Though my pediatrician told us to always get a new toothbrush after run of strep throat. Consider it $2 well-spent!)

Great tip! And of course it goes without saying, replacement is best after an illness
