Get the Nasties out of your mouth!

I love the Colgate Invisible Nasties Campaign! They are getting out the news along with bloggers that you can and will have "Nasties" growing in your toothbrush.  It is up to you to prevent it from happening!  Oral care is very important! Most insurance plans cover you for two preventive cleanings a year.  Do you go to them? Not sure about your insurance? Get a copy of your plan and see what it covers.

Invisible Nasties are little germs and bacteria that hide out in your toothbrush.  We are a homeschool family and here are our


TOP 10 TIPS to Prevent the Nasties:

  1. Changing your toothbrush every 3 months
  2. Rinse your brush and tap out the extra water after brushing
  3. Let it air dry
  4. Keep it away from the toilet
  5. Keep it away from the cats & dogs
  6. Don't leave it lay on the sink 
  7. Change it after a cold or mouth sores
  8. Don't share it with anyone
  9. Brush twice a day
  10. Go to the Dentist at least two times a year
Do you like our Nasties? It is fun to have real, tangible objects to explain a lesson. My 11 year old made the adorable nasties! She has a pattern that she made and traces it on to the muslin fabric.  She then sews the up and stuff with them cotton balls!!! She made Mr and Mrs Nasty look a little crazy.   For the clothes she used each doll as a pattern and make them clothes.   I like the happy doll. She looks cute and happy that she is free from the Nasties.

 When it comes to personal body care and needs tweens get a little embarrassed to find out they are offensive to others if they don't brush their teeth or put on deodorant.  That is why it is so important to explain it to them.  It helps to use objects to work things out by acting.  Great teaching tool.

Here are the ones who don't take care of their teeth:

Here is the happy one who is Nasty Free!
