The product states it is shred resistant, every time I use it I think I have hair in my mouth I have purchased this product twice and find it very poor quality compared to other dental floss. Waste of money
Purchased in July 2000 at Coles.
Strands come off and it often snaps after one go. I suspected it was a cheap 'Made in China' product but it's actually Malaysian made. To be frank it's just rubbish. Dressmakers thread would be more effective! I certainly won't be buying again.
Purchased in June 2019 at Coles Supermarkets for $3.00.
I sometimes buy Colgate total dental floss tape and found the floss to be pretty good as it doesn't seem to fall apart easily and doesn't hurt the teeth / I recommend the Colgate total dental floss to anyone who likes to keep the tooth gaps in between the teeth free of any nasty surprises
Do most people have fingers like sandpaper?
I am astounded that so many people seem to like the Colgate Total. Recently I tried it for the first time. Never again. The coating is so slippery that it's almost impossible to loop it around your fingers and make it stay there. It can be done, but it uses an awful lot of the floss, and at the same time you have to loop it so tightly it nearly amputates your fingers. In short, using it is a wasteful and painful process. On the positive side, if you're prepared to invest the time, expense and pain in getting the stuff around your fingers,...then it seems to do the actual flossing just fine. But who is prepared to make an investment of that kind. Only people with finger skin like sandpaper, but not me, dear reader. Cheapish, meter-for-dollar.
This is a great floss - I use it along with Colgate Total toothpaste & will never go back. It's not too expensive, lasts for ages and is very strong and durable. It makes daily flossing less of a chore as it is thin enough to fit between teeth that are close together!
I already used to use Colgate Total toothpaste, and then I was given a sample of this Colgate floss to try. It was great - it was strong enough not to break like some other brands that I've tried. Yet it was also thin enough not to get stuck between my teeth - it made cleaning a whole lot easier!!
No negative things to say about this floss!
I like using Colgate Total products and this dental floss is another product that does do what it says it will. Unlike several other varieties of tooth floss I have not experienced a big problem with the floss breaking while using it. You therefore do not use as much of it and it lasts a lot longer. Definitely lasts longer than many other products you can buy from the supermarket shelves.
This is a great tooth floss that is easy to use, feels like it does a good job and is affordable. The container usually lasts for some time.
There are none. A good hard working product.
This is an okay floss that helps you clean your gums and it has an alright flavour as well. Not too expensive to buy and this produce lasts for quite a while, so that makes it even cheaper to purchase. It help eliminate tartar build-up on your teeth and it can even massage your gums for you. I always use Colgates Dental floss as it is a reliable and the least troublesome out of all of the brands.
Does not get stuck or break between your teeth.
It can sometimes get caught in the packet it you do not pull it out correctly.
This is a floss that I can actually use, I find the price reasonable, and it lasts quite a long time. It would be handy if they had on the packet how to floss, not just the throw away packet.
I find this floss much more gentle on my teeth than other brands of floss I have used, I like the taste, and it doesn't then make me fell like I have to brush my teeth again to get rid of the taste.
Sometimes the floss gets stuck between the packet, or it will not pull off easily, but that mainly happens when my son uses it.
This is one of my favourite flosses that I regually purchase for our home. When I have any tartar build up I use this along with the toothpaste of the same range and it always gets the job done properly. It is also much much cheaper then going to the dentist to get it removed professionally. I also love the ribbon as it must have been well designed to prevent the fraying and breaking problem that other flosses do. This effective little personal hygene gem is a must have for every household.
Cheap and very effective.
I dont really like the smell too much.
Colgate Total Dental Floss is cheap because a packet of it lasts for a long time. I believe though that it will last much longer if it does not tear off easily. I hope that Colgate will also come up with a floss that is not tape or ribbon but a thread-like dental floss which is much stronger than the dental ribbon they have now.
It is manufactured by Colgate which is my favorite dental products brand. It is widely available. It cleanses well; it does a great job.
It tears very easily which really annoys me. However, I have also noticed the same with other brands of dental ribbon or tape.
I tried this brand of dental floss and found that it was constantly getting caught in the little metal blade due to a wax build up underneath it. It worked great to remove plaque and food remains caught between the teeth and not much is needed to provide flossing for all of your teeth.
It collects plaque caught between teeth well, inexpensive to purchase and widely available
I found that it shreds really easily and that it is hard to get out of the container as it gets caught frequently due to the wax coating which needed to be cleaned off regularly
I have trouble with the regular shape of dental floss as it does not fit between the gaps of my teeth.
I have found that Colgate tape fits very nicely and easily between the gaps between my teeth. My only problem with the product is that it tears very very easily. This is not a big problem though as it is cheap and easily available and can be replaced all the time.
Saying that though I find a container lasts a long time, being replaced every month or two.
Is a good shape that fits between very tight spaces.
Tears very easily.

While Colgate has a 2.7-metre trial floss length, and a 137m surgery size dispenser, only the Colgate 25-metre dental ribbon is sold in stores, available in a regular version or a tartar control version.
The use of single-filament PTFE is designed to help this floss resist shredding, especially when compared to other brands that use nylon floss.
This floss has a natural wax coating to help wax slide easily between teeth, however if you already experience trouble holding floss between your fingers, this may make it harder to grip.
While there are mixed reviews on the effectiveness of this dental floss, at $2.99 per 25-metre box, it doesn’t hurt to try it out and decide for yourself.
