Why choose Refillable Dental Floss?
Both the packaging of your standard store bought dental floss and the floss itself are made of a combination of materials, the majority of which is plastic. Even if you were to add the plastic container to your recycling bin, it’s too small to be processed, and will eventually end up in landfill. After use the floss itself is headed straight to landfill — it is made of a nylon fibre, and cannot be recycled.
The simple waste free solution? Use dental floss that is zero waste: biodegradable and compostable — stop single use plastic at the source.
Are the Dental Lace Refills Vegan?
Dental Lace does make a vegan version of their refillable floss. The vegan refill floss is made from bamboo charcoal and PET rather than silk. EORTH do not stock the vegan version of refillable floss. If you are seeking a vegan floss we do stock Noosa Basics Dental Floss which is packaged plastic free in a cardboard box.
How do you use the Refillable Floss?
To get the best results from your Dental Lace, cut the desired amount of lace from the metal container (we recommend 30-45 cm). Wind the floss around each of your middle fingers, leaving a few centimetres of floss in the centre.
Hold your Dental Lace quite tight between your thumb and index fingers and slide it gently up and down between your teeth. It’s not recommended to force the floss as it may cut your gum tissue.
Once used the floss can be added to your compost. When you’re ready to refill your container, simply unscrew the metal lid and add a new refill floss to the glass jar.
