switch & save challenge

I’m really excited to share a new site with you all!!  I have been asked by Better Homes and Gardens and Arm & Hammer to be a part of the “Switch & Save” team and website.  Each month, for four months, I will be switching common household products that I currently use with Arm & Hammer products and I will be sharing my experience with you!  I will review the product, share tips and tricks  from Better Homes and Gardens and Arm & Hammer, savings, coupons and even giveaways!!

I hope you will click over to site SwitchSaveChallenge website and check it out!.

Spinbrush ProClean

I’ve always worried about how my teeth looked, even before “bright white teeth” were all the rage!  I was one of those lucky kids who never had a cavity.  I think I was in my late teens or even twenties before I ever had a filling.  I thank my parents for making sure we always brushed, and for making me suffer thru 2 years of braces!

As an adult I quickly realized what the importance of a good tooth brush to dental hygiene.  I tried my fair share of manual brushes to the expensive electric toothbrushes.

Do you remember the drab ho-hum electric toothbrushes from the 80’s? Well, I was recently given the opportunity to review the Arm & Hammer® Spinbrush® ProClean and let me tell you, this brush is light years beyond those days.

Arm & Hammer® Spinbrush® ProClean

  • clinically proven to remove up to 70% more plaque (in hard to reach places versus a manual toothbrush)
  • Dual Action Technology – a combination of spinning and back and forth brushing action heads
  • Available with soft or medium bristles and replaceable head.
  • Comes in several colors to suite all personal styles (great for assigning each family member their own color)
  • Includes 2 replaceable AA batteries (ready to go out of the box!)
  • Less than $9 suggested U.S. retail
  • Ranked #1 battery-powered toothbrush brand.


I’ve been using the  Spinbrush® ProClean for several weeks now, and I have to say, I am very impressed with my healthy, white smile and how I get that ‘straight-from-the-dentist-chair’ feeling after I brush.  I no longer have my wisdom teeth, and this brush is great for reaching all the way back to that empty space behind my last molars, massaging my gums along the way!

Maintaining proper oral hygiene can be beneficial to your overall health, so eat a balanced diet, brush and floss daily and, of course, visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.

    I love everything you said about this product! I never had a cavity either until I was in college when I guess my nutrition became deficient (blush).

    You have the most beautiful smile Cheryl! I can’t wait to read more about your Switch & Save Challenge. :)

    I LOVE your toothless grin!

    I just took 7 of my kids to the dentist and they didn’t have a SINGLE cavity! WOOHOO!

    Adorable pics! You do have a great smile…even toothless. That is so great about your parents and their dedication to oral hygene. I think I had my first cavity in jr. high. So far my kids have not had any. This is a good reminder to keep up on the brushing and flossing. I have tried the spin brushes and have liked them as well.

    You’re such a pretty woman with a strong face…and of course good teeth 😉
    Love your blog!

    That is the cutest picture I’ve seen in awhile! And you were so lucky with no cavities- I had them starting out really young. We have soft enamel in my family. I’ll have to check out that toothbrush. Thanks!

    I have had only one filling my entire life! Woo hoo! I’m going to look for that toothbrush, I haven’t had a rotating one since my daughter left our expensive one at camp. Grr. 😉

    Ha!! Love your photo:-) I want that tooth brush now too.

    Love the spin brush! It definitely helps me brush longer.

    I don’t have any cavities. Never have. We have SpinBrushes for the older kids, and they love them. It’s greatly reduced my worry that they’re scrubbing when the toothbrush is in their mouth, and we had great reviews from the dentist last time we were there. And I agree with everyone else, your smile is beautiful!

    Sweet picture of you! I love Arm & Hammer toothpaste! :)

    Sweet picture of younger you and beautiful picture of you today! When we were kids my mom used to make us brush our teeth every once in awhile with just baking soda and water, she said it gave our teeth a good overall polishing. I still do that today…every once in awhile.

    If this is your secret to your beautiful smile, I’m going out ASAP to buy some spin brushes!

    I’ll have to check this toothbrush out, I am about due for a new one. You’re a stunner, Cheryl!
