Frays and Snaps
on November 2, 2016
The product is a tape-type floss so it doesn't fray like thread-type flosses - that's why I bought it. But it is prone to snapping from time to time, and will also fray horizontally across the tape. Think of Scotch tape, when it splits and you have that narrow bit, and you're going round and round to find the other half of the tape so you can cut it, and use the full width? Well, this sometimes does that, especially towards the end of the reel. I've even had it where it is wound back on itself, and had to open the case to disentangle it.
This was what it was - and we're talking floss here - but my dentist gave me a sample of Johnson & Johnson Listerine floss, and it's a revelation. It's a better-engineered product, in particular because the tape is stretchy, and so doesn't snap. I feel Glide has been outclassed, and I switched my Subscribe & Save order accordingly.
