Most of us know flossing is good for us. Getting to the area between our teeth is impossible with toothbrushes. Floss helps us with that. It makes sense. And, yet, I hated the idea of flossing. The traditional approach to flossing involved an elaborate dance with my fingers and I ended up finding excuses on most nights.
Then, I read about Listerine’s flosser and decided to give it a spin. Listerine ensured the product was designed with a handle and replaceable heads. It sounded great. And, it was.
One of the top reviews on the Amazon page of this product was “Habit forming.” I couldn’t agree more – that is what this did for me too.
This flosser, thus, has become a daily reminder of what great product design looks like. By virtue of thoughtful product design, it makes it easy for users to form a habit to do something that they both want to do and is good for them. It is exactly what the best products do.
Learn from the flosser, we can.
