Why is it so hard to find a decent roll of dental floss. In my experience, it either cuts your gums or flays and gets stuck in your teeth.

My favourite dental floss manufacturer is Oral B, because the tape doesn't flay, it glides in between your teeth easily, and more importantly, glides out from between your teeth with no fuss. Also, Oral B dental tape has a minty smell, which is important.

As for dental tapes and flosses to avoid, I'd have to say Tesco value "wins". It costs about 99 pence for three 50m spools, which is about 50 pence more than a spool of string of similar length. Also, a length of string is much more comfortable than this so called "dental floss".

Also, how do you dispose of dental floss? I roll it up into a little ball, wrap some toilet paper around it and carefully place it in the bathroom bin.

Share your floss related stories or wisdom with me.

I ain't used dental floss for years. The last time I remember using it was at the dentist and I ain't been there in a long time either. I might have some floss in the bathroom though...

You obviously never visited the "Your Daily Log" thread, the most excellent, if short lived bathroom related thread to ever grace this forum.

If you don't mind, can we keep the discussion firmly on dental floss.

I forgot to mention, the little metal hooks you cut the tape with is often a bit fiddly, although if you pay the money, you get a higher quality cleave. Tesco floss is a bit of tin foil folded into a triangle, while the superior Oral B (blackdragon inadvertently reminded me of the type of floss I favour) is a more sturdy metal. It does however dull towards the end of the spool. I sometimes have to use a pair of scissors.
