Floss with container
No more cleaning those pearly whites with petroleum!
This floss will leave you feeling like you’ve just come back from the dentist.
Our dental floss is made from corn fiber and is lightly coated with candelilla wax for slide.
You can smile each time you use it knowing you’re no longer using traditional plastic floss containers and saving marine life with this biodegradable alternative. Simply save your stylish glass container and top it up with a refill (shipped in a compostable paper bag!) in your next order.
*Corn floss is best for those with wider teeth.
*Does not contain polyester.
*Bamboo floss is best for those with tight teeth.
*Unfortunately this does contain polyester, which means it is not compostable and must be thrown in the garbage after use.

Nylon dental floss.
Traditional dental floss is usually made from either nylon (petroleum), teflon (the chemical mouthful polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)), or synthetic wax (petroleum).
These toxins can be absorbed into your bloodstream during those times that you floss a little too hard, or it’s been, say, longer than the suggested three times a day since your last floss.
Discarded dental floss cannot be recycled, takes 30-80 years to break down, and can be harmful to wildlife.
Glass floss containers replace the need for plastic dental floss containers and allow you to refill and reuse instead.

How To Use
Pull out about 18 inches of floss, cut on the lid of the container.
Wind the floss around your fingers (no need to get all tangled!).
Slide floss gently up and down between your teeth.
*Take care around your gum line.
At the gum line, curve floss into a C-shape against your tooth and gently slide into the space between the gum and your tooth.
Repeat for each tooth.
