On September 29th, Canadians embraced their favourite vice of choice and celebrated National Coffee Day. Did you know that Canadians consume an average of 2.8 cups a day?

Here are some other interesting statistics about coffee that will keep you brewing the beverage every morning:

·       Coffee is good for your memory. A study conducted in Maastricht, Holland found that coffee can combat the forgetfulness that often accompanies aging.

·     Coffee helps fight the common cold. Coffee can help cold sufferers feel better faster by relieving the sluggish feeling colds leave behind.

While a great cup of coffee is the perfect way to start the day, sometimes our favourite morning ‘jolt’ can leave us wanting to hide under the covers...  You know what I’m talking about!

·   Clothing stains. All it takes is a little drip from your mouth to land on your lap or your chest (the worst part is when you don’t even realize it happened). OxiClean™ Colour Shield Liquid Laundry Stain Remover features the power of OxiClean™ that reaches deep into fabric fibers to quickly and safely break up and remove stains and keeps colours looking their brightest.

·        Teeth stains. Our teeth probably hate us the most for our love of coffee. ARM & HAMMERTM Truly Radiant™  Spinbrush and ARM & HAMMERTM Truly Radiant™  Whitening & Enamel Strengthening Toothpaste are the perfect pair to fight coffee stains and get to a whiter, brighter smile in just 3 days. ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Spinbrush removes 100% more plaque in those hard to reach areas, and ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Whitening & Enamel Strengthening Toothpaste removes stains, helps remineralize tooth enamel restoring its shine and smoothness.

                  What is your favourite way to enjoy your morning coffee?

It's Back-to-School... Are you Ready? #ChurchandDwight

Tomorrow is back-to-school in our world and I'm not exactly sure whether I am ready to jump for joy or cry? This summer was the first summer that MommyO did not work from home, which meant the kids spent their days at day camp, sleep-away camp, Grandmas house or with their amazing sitters. 

While half of me is wishing there was more summer goodness to soak up with the kids, the reality is that they are MORE THAN READY to go back (and willing I might add).

What I am not ready for??

Let's face it... lunches and lunch making are not the finer niceties of back-to-school. But, the kids need to eat, right? (Maybe they will need to do this themselves soon? Like... ASAP?)

Then, there is the MUST-DO laundry.

Laundry is easy peasy in the summer months, because no one really needs to wear anything specific. But during school? I NEED to wear this sweater tomorrow to match our science lesson on frogs, or I NEED to wear this shirt for 18 days in a row because it is my favourite! Yikes!

Eventually, the gym clothes laundry needs to get washed, as does everything else and why not choose the detergent I know works best. The OxiClean line of laundry detergents has your biggest stains covered! (Or rather, BE GONE!) But for your toughest stains, use this OxiClean™ Max Force™ Gel Stick to pre-treat.

And let's not forget about the teeth!

Brushing those pearly whites happens much less with back-to-school, so you'll need to make sure the kids stay on top of it when they return home. The Arm and Hammer Spinbrush works great, and your kids are sure to love their neat designs.
