The How-To Lounge: Remembering to Floss

Flossing — it's a total drag but so important to your dental health, not to mention your breath. For some helpful tips on how to remember to floss, click here to

  • For some strange reason, many people, including myself, have a mental block against flossing, but once you get into the habit, you won't be able to stop.
  • If you are constantly running late in the morning then floss at night, after lunch, in the shower, or any time when you can devote an extra five minutes out of your day.
  • If you need a reminder, add a daily alarm to your calendar at work and excuse yourself to the bathroom to floss your teeth.
  • Floss Ups make flossing less tedious so keep them in your medicine cabinet or desk drawer — wherever you decide you will be flossing.
  • Since the holidays are coming around, make it your New Year's resolution to floss — it's going to be one of mine this year and I promise you won't regret it!

Since I know I am not the only one that hates to floss, ladies, if you have any other helpful tips, please share them below.

i always floss before i brush my teeth. it's just a habit i've created since being a kid. i can tell my teeth feel cleaner after i've flossed them too. i always used to think flossing was a hassle too (especially when i had braces!), but my sister introduced me to this flosser that has a handle like a toothbrush (kinda like floss-ups, but bigger) and changeable floss heads that you buy. it's great, especially for people who don't like to thread the floss around your fingers.

I need to floss more than I do.

I bought mint flavored floss and that helps a lot. I love the taste, but maybe I am weird...

I too use those toothpick versions. Makes it MUCH easier to floss.

I recently started flossing more. It's mostly because I changed jobs and won't have insurance for another month or so and I need to go to the dentist! LOL So I don't want a scolding. But now I floss every night before I brush my teeth. I use those toothpick things and it's very quick and now that it's in my routine, it comes a lot more naturally (which I'm really happy about!).

i use the toothpick ones that they sell at cvs and other stores. when i had braces i hated flossing becuz it was soooo difficult, then my dentist gave me a floss that was special for braces and it made it so much better.

Those toothpick flossing things (they are at the drugstores) are super easy to use on the go and don't require too much work. Might want to check those out for those of us on the run.
