Todd’s Redneck Dental Floss – A Plastic Grocery Sack
You ever get something stuck in your teeth and you don't have a toothpick and you don't have any dental floss or even a toothbrush? It happened to me yesterday morning at work. I had just eaten some beef jerky and I had an Elvis-sized piece of jerky caught between two molars. I had nothing to get it out. Then I remembered I brought my breakfast to work in a plastic grocery sack. It's what Brian and I call redneck dental floss.
The thing is, it really works. Sometimes better than dental floss and definitely better than a toothpick. I hate when a toothpick breaks off in your teeth. Then you have 2 things you can't remove from your chompers. I always carry a plastic bag in my truck for such emergencies.
WHAT TO USE IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
What do you do if you don't have floss, a toothpick, a toothbrush, or a plastic bag? Here are a few items I have used over the years to remove chunks from betwixt my teeth:
- Business Card
- a twig
- Baseball card
- Paper Clip
- McDonalds Hamburger Wrapper
- Thumb Tack
What have you used?
