Important Information

Directions
Flossing is Easy with the Proper Technique: 1. Wind an 18inch piece of floss around your middle fingers, leaving about 4 inches of floss between them. 2. Grasp floss firmly between thumb and index finger of each hand. Gently slide floss between teeth, using a slow sawing motion to slip between tight teeth. 3. Move floss up and down against tooth to clean both above and below the gum line, curving the floss around the tooth for best results. 4. Repeat cleaning procedure for each tooth. Every few teeth, move to a clean piece of floss by unwinding floss from one finger and rewinding it onto the other finger.

I have used several different "Reach" brand floss products. I bought this particular floss 6 pack in an attempt to be economical, but I was disappointed. This particular floss frays easier than a previous floss in the same Reach brand and shape container that I earlier purchased. Regretfully I cannot find the name of that product online (I hope it was a different product...) Admittedly this particular Reach floss is at least stronger and frays less easily than cheap generic store-brand floss.

If I am going to use a thin floss, I want one that is strong and doesn't fray when used in tight spaces between teeth. Otherwise I would prefer non-thin floss varieties. I liked Reach's "Gentle Gum Care" woven floss or "Dentotape". Both seem more effective at getting at stuff stuck between teeth at or slightly below the gum line. (Woven does fray but the extra abrasiveness of the weave makes up for that.) They are both worth the slight extra cost IMHO.

As a long time teeth brusher/flosser I thought I had experienced everything there is to experience in oral care products. But after using Reach Dental Floss, I can honestly say this is far and away the best string I have ever used for dislodging rotting food from between my teeth. Bravo Johnson&Johnson, your floss walks tall. Floss on mofos!

Size: 200 Yard (Pack of 6)
Up until about a month ago I had been been using this floss for decades. However, it's quality has deteriorated in recent years: (1) the winding is now so tight that the strands often get stuck together so that you can't pull the floss out and you have to open up the container and free things up. (2) Very recently they made it thinner, so much so that it doesn't feel like it's actually cleaning my teeth. Fortunately I found the GUM brand of floss (Butler weave), which also comes in a 200 yard length, and I am very happy with it.

Size: 55 Yards (Pack of 4)
I've used Reach Dental Floss for years. The positives are the following:

1. It does a good job of getting food particles and the like from between the teeth, which is one of the main reasons to use dental floss.

2. It's easy to grip, unlike some brands, which are so slippery they keep slipping out of one's hand.

3. The flavor is pleasing. (This is particularly true of the Cinnamon, which is about my favorite flavor.)

However, for people like me with very tight spaces between my teeth, there's a drawback as well. The Reach brand floss is hard to get into these spaces. And on a number of occasions I've had a piece break off and get stuck between my teeth while I've been flossing my teeth. This requires me to use another strand of floss to get the first strand out of my teeth. Thankfully, usually this works, but it is somewhat annoying.

Size: 200 Yard (Pack of 6) Verified Purchase
Shortly after starting the first box, the floss no longer would feed, even though I managed to keep it going a little longer by prying open the lid, turning the floss upside down, and then closing the box. This worked for maybe 2 days, after which time prying open the box and reversing the roll of floss would no longer work. I notified J&J and sent them back the defective package, thinking that it was a fluke. It was not. I had the same exact problem with the next box before I'd hardly used any of it. I advise buying Reach Dental Floss in a small enough size that does not use a tall box because that size box has a packaging defect.

This is an effective dental floss from Johnson and Johnson. It is normal width, waxed for easier access between teeth, and is mint flavored. If one uses about 16 inches of floss per application, then this cassette will last about 4 months. If you want to keep your teeth for a life-time, develop the flossing habit. As one wise sage said: "If you ignore your teeth, they will eventually go away".

I recommend this product. It is effective and costs pennies per application.

Size: 55 Yard (Pack of 12) Verified Purchase
I've been through several different kinds of floss, since Meijer (my most visited local supermarket) stopped selling this floss. This is the thinnest and most comfortable floss to use. Out of all the other floss's I've tried, even the ones with the trendy sparkling cases, that say things to make you think that you will be getting the most comfortable and pleasurable flossing experience, this one is the best one.

pros:

1- Thin waxed floss that easily slides in between my tight teeth and pulls out lots of junk.

2- No flavor...Flavored floss is always ultra intensely flavored with mint or spearmint which is very harsh and uncomfortable on my gums.

3- Its inexpensive.

Cons:

1- flossing really isn't much fun to begin with.
