    15. Some reusable interdental flossers that'll help get gunk and plaque from between your chompers without making your gums bleed in the process. They're also amazing for those of us with permanent retainers, because let's be honest — navigating some floss in there is a real nightmare.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "Flossing with permanent retainers is a difficult task, and these little doodads make the process so much less of a hassle. They easily slide under my wires and unstick pesky things (like popcorn kernels) without much work. I don't know what magic they were blessed with, but they don't make my gums bleed the way regular floss does, either (I have a very sensitive mouth). One last thing: they're über flexible, but don't break easily, so you can do a bit of brushing between your teeth without worrying about the bristles snapping off." —Alice Prendergast

This electric shaver got rid of ALL the annoying pills and my sweaters look good as new. It's super gentle on clothes and it took way less time to get rid of the pills." —Kaysey Davis
