This page is going to show you a simple trick that will make it so you almost never have to pay a single penny for dental floss picks every again.
Granted, dental floss picks are very inexpensive as it is (about $2 for 75 of them) but using this simple trick, a pack of 75 dental flosser picks can last you a couple of years making this part of your oral health routine as close to free as possible.
We all know flossing is a part of good oral health and the ease of use and convenience, as well as low price, is one of the biggest reasons flosser picks have become so popular lately. Most people, myself included, generally use these after brushing your teeth and then throw them away. If you brush your teeth twice a day, that is two floss picks seeing the garbage can a day.

How to make your Floss Picks Last Forever
This trick is so simple, that if you have not thought of it already, when I tell you it your going to slap yourself and wonder why you never thought of this before.
- Take a small Tupperware container or very small glass (something that holds about 3 – 6 oz of liquid) and fill it about half way up with mouthwash.
- After you have flossed, rinse the floss part of the dental floss pick under the water.
- Place the dental floss pick, floss side down, into the vessel of mouthwash and leave it there until next time you use it.
This simple trick will allow you to safely and cleanly use that same dental floss pick over and over again numerous times. In fact, you can keep using the same one, over and over, until the time comes when the floss breaks from repeated use.
I find I am able to keep using the same floss pick for a week or more. This means a pack of 75 dental floss picks should last you 75 weeks or longer!
