Sanitation and Dental Preps

I can not stress enough how important it is to stock up on your sanitation and dental preps.  Oral hygiene goes a long way to helping maintain a healthy existence.  There is no pain greater than a sore tooth, ask anyone sitting in a dentist office!  So be sure to to purchase a few of the dental preps below and learn how to use them.

When a disaster strikes garbage men might not be coming by the house any time soon.  You will need to have the basic supplies to deal with human waste in a sanitary fashion.  You also need to stock up on supplies to keep you and your family clean. I often use Amazon Suscribe and Save to order these items monthly to ensure I have plenty of sanitation supplies on hand.

If you do eat or drink any sugary items, make a habit of brushing your teeth within 30 minutes to remove any sugars left on your teeth. This can significantly reduce cavities.
