That it was still compact, still light weight but quality.” (Heather)“You know, years ago, there was a wide thing that you could buy that had a floss material that you could reuse. If they could put something like that in that you could wash and use. Like three or four or five times without having to take floss and have to pull so much.” (Herbert)“It is usually very impromptu…they always forget something when they come back.
