Bad Alternatives to Dental Floss!

We all know that we should floss every day or else we get shamed at our next visit to the dentist. But some people have unique, if not downright gross ways to floss without using dental floss. According to a recent survey, 61% have used their fingernails while 40% have used folded up cards or other bits of paper. I must admit I do this if there is something caught in my teeth and I’m far from the floss. Meanwhile, 21% have used a knife, fork, or spoon to do the job. Safety pins stand in for floss for 14% of those surveyed, while half that number 7%, say they’ve used their own hair. For the record, only 16% admitted they floss at least once a day. Showoffs.
