With summer on its way, this will come in handy after your small children have red, purple, or orange Popsicles or drink Kool-Aid and have the "Kool-Aid smile" (the ring of color around their mouth). You can easily remove this color by washing their mouth and lips with warm water and a tarter control whitening toothpaste. The very light abrasion and whitening ingredients in the toothpaste will remove the color stain but not harm your child. It tastes good too.

When serving any flavored drink like Kool-Aid and your child comes away with a colored mustache, it can be easily removed by using any tartar control toothpaste on a damp washcloth.
