Left-Handed Dental Floss

Dental Floss for Left Handed People

The other day I was pulling at my dental floss, and the entire roll came out with that white plastic part that holds the clipper and the roll in place.

I placed the white plastic part back in the container backwards, and accidentally invented left-handed-dental dental floss.

Also, makes a good *suttle* practical joke.

       For people not in their right minds.

       Interestingly, that inner mechanism is called a "shuttle".

       But what do you use for the teeth on the right side of your mouth then?

       Upper or lower?

       I thought this was going to be string theory related but liked it and tried it. Its great but now the little cutting blade faces the wrong way and requires a somewhat gimpy outward movement. Any thoughts?

       Pre-cut lengths of floss? Packaged in a long, slim case which has a tiny hole in one end for the floss to be fed through. The cuts are made about 95% of the way through the fabric so when you pull the floss out the hole it breaks off at the cut. No more cutting blades to make you look gimpy.
