Whiten Your Teeth for Less With Arm & Hammer

Whiten Your Teeth for Less With Arm & Hammer

When I see the celebs on TV, I’m sometimes blinded by their shiny, white teeth. Since I love coffee, red wine and many foods that stain teeth, I’m a bit jealous of their smiles. Cosmetic dentistry is very expensive, and whitening strips make my teeth feel sensitive. What’s a mom to do?  I’ve tried whitening toothpastes in the past, but I’ve never noticed a difference. When Arm & Hammer challenged me to switch to their AdvanceWhite Toothpaste … Read entire article »

Switch and Save With Arm & Hammer Toothpaste

Finding the time to take good care of myself is hard to manage. As many moms know, personal care and beauty tend to fall to the bottom of the ever-growing “to-do” list. I make time to brush and floss twice daily, so I avoid cavities. But maintaining pearly white teeth feels like much more of an effort and a luxury. (Whitening strips and laser treatments aren’t cheap!) Almost every toothpaste claims to whiten nowadays, but I’ve … Read entire article »

Fighting Stains With Arm & Hammer

As a mom to two little boys, I deal with a lot of messes. Boys are stain magnets. Between the grass stains and mud stains from a day on the playground or a muddy soccer game and the ketchup stains from summer barbecue parties, it is tough keeping their clothing looking like new. Using hand-me down clothing saves money, so I’m hoping my youngest will be able to wear his older brother’s clothing. But I don’t … Read entire article »

What Stains Drive You Crazy?

What Stains Drive You Crazy?

My little boys are high energy; they zoom from one activity to the next without stopping for a breath. My older son loves soccer, which is a wonderful way to keep active, but terrible for keeping his clothes clean. Everything winds up with a grass or mud stain. The clothes that manage to escape the mud and grass get stained at lunch! Removing grass stains without fading the clothing is a big task, which is why … Read entire article »

Keeping Pool Toys and Lawn Furniture Fresh

Keeping Pool Toys and Lawn Furniture Fresh

I was challenged to use Arm & Hammer Baking Soda to tackle a large cleaning project around my home. I’ve already successfully used Arm & Hammer Baking Soda to clean my children’s bath toys and stuffed animals as well as to freshen our diaper pail and deodorize our refrigerator. I’ve also tested Arm & Hammer’s Spinbrush and Whitening Toothpaste. I don’t particularly enjoy large cleaning projects, but I do enjoy eating outside and playing with my kids … Read entire article »

Arm & Hammer Spin Brush Solution!

Between visits to the dentist, it’s important to keep your child (and yourself!) in a good routine of dental hygiene. Instilling good dental hygiene habits at a young age is the one of best and most effective ways to teach kids about the importance of healthy teeth and gums. When Arm & Hammer asked me to participate in their Spin Brush Challenge, I decided that the biggest dental challenge in my household was getting my four-year-old … Read entire article »

Arm & Hammer Spinbrush Challenge

Arm & Hammer Spinbrush Challenge

Did you know that dentists recommend brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day? Getting my four year old to brush his teeth is easy enough, but getting him to brush for two minutes is a challenge. Thankfully, he’s been cavity free at his dental checkups, but several of his friends have had cavities — and bad experiences at the dentist. I’d like to spare him that trauma, so I worry that he’s not thoroughly … Read entire article »
