      My husband is a sucker for anything new, improved or “as seen on TV”. It’s bad; he will not only watch infomercials, but actually start reaching for the phone until I slap him and he snaps back to reality. Commercials advertising new, gimmecky products are to my husband as Kryptonite is to Superman!

      Now, my husband is also a very good dad. So when he saw a new dental rinse that boasted an ability to “make brushing fun” for kids, he was on his way to the store quicker than I could react to pick some up for our son. Without my slap, there was no stopping him. He was on a mission to save our son’s barely-formed teeth!

      My husband came home with this


      bottle of blue stuff called Listerine Agent Cool Blue. It looked like mouthwash, and I thought it couldn’t be a bad idea. Then I realized it wasn’t mouthwash at all. I asked my husband how much the stuff cost while I looked over the label description. He told me he spent about $4 on the Agent Cool Blue. That may not sound like a lot, but to me, that’s $4 too much for a product that is nothing but blue dye in a liquid that stains your kids teeth. Then the kids brush it off immediately. What is the point? I know, I know, it’s “fun”.

      They could at least add flouride, or other beneficial ingredients. Maybe a non-alcohol based mouthwash, with the same ...


      • fun color effect. I like those dental tablets and rinses that you use AFTER brushing, to show you spots you’ve missed. That is a good product, with a purpose, for new brushers.

        Why does brushing need to be “fun” anyway? Life isn’t always fun, sometimes you just need to get things done. Like brushing your teeth! Besides all that, I hear that certain batches of the product was recalled a while back, though I’m not sure if ours was affected. I think my son used this Cool Blue dental rinse a grand total of four times, and almost always at my husband’s reminding. My son’s interest was fairly minimal, except maybe the first night. I still think my husband was more excited about it

        than anyone!

        Plus, the stuff stains like crazy if your kid dribbles it down the front of himself! I think I got my sons dribble out in the wash, but it wasn’t on a white shirt. White clothes would probably be ruined. And it makes the sink look like it’s tinged a light blue color, as well.

        I do not recommend this product simply because I don’t find it to have any real value. I’m sorry to say, but I think this Listerine Agent Cool Blue dental rinse is pretty darn useless, and why spend your money on something that doesn’t accomplish anything? Buy your kids a fun colored rinse that does something for their actual dental health, not this one which just colors their teeth!
