My teeth are very close together and finding a dental floss that actually works without huge effort to get it between these tight teeth has been difficult. My first experience with Dental Lace was when I won a basket at Casco Baykeepers fund raiser while we were visiting family in Maine. I gave it a try, loved it, love it’s refillable glass container and have been using it ever since. I’ve also given it as gift! Funny thing to give as a gift but it’s that good.
I would highly recommend this floss, both for its use and for its sustainability. At first I tried the Dental Lace vegan floss, and in general I would prefer a vegan option to a non-vegan option, but I found it prone to breaking at least once every flossing, which meant I had to use more - very frustrating! I know they said the vegan floss was stronger, but I disagree. I got a free silk floss sample with my original order, and if it weren't for that, I'd probably have given up for Dental Lace. The silk floss really works for me - rarely breaks, works well. I know for me I was looking for basic effective floss with as little waste as possible, and this fits the bill perfectly! I really appreciate the sustainability of this floss and it's packaging. I keep a little round glass vase on the bathroom vanity to use for compost (both for this floss and for the bathroom plants' leaves), and that's worked well to fill it up and take it outside to the bin when I run out of space. I can't speak to the speed of composting. I've considered that I should probably cut it up a bit before putting it in the compost bin, just to avoid having it wrap around the rototiller when it comes time to prep the garden. I'd appreciate it if the company offered a bulk option / discount (buy 10 refills for discount / less packaging) - I prefer to minimize my shipping use and stock up.
