Plackers recently conducted a consumer survey for National Dental Hygiene Month and found that more than half of respondents did not floss daily. The most common reason? Either they forget (40%) or they don’t have floss handy when they need it (30%).



Plackers introduces the new Micro Mint Travel Case so that flossing is always convenient. The small refillable case, about the size of a pack of gum, holds 12 disposable Micro Mint flossers and can be easily slipped into a purse, gym bag, carry-on, or briefcase. It’s a great product to encourage people to keep their teeth cleaner through regular flossing between dentist visits.

Plackers invented the first disposable flosser 40 years ago, and ever since then we’ve continued finding easier ways for people to practice good oral hygiene,” said Jim Peliotes, vice president of marketing for Ranir, Plackers’ parent company. “Our new Micro Mint Travel Case makes it convenient to floss at the office, the gym, on the plane – wherever the need arises.”

Filled with 12 Micro Mint flossers, featuring Super Tuffloss® high-performance floss engineered not to stretch, shred or break during use, the new travel packs provide an oral care solution for people on the move who want a better clean than toothpicks or gum can offer. The Micro Mint’s fold-away pick also helps keep teeth debris-free on the go, and its mint flavor freshens breath for a thoroughly clean mouth feel.
