Innovations in dental care

This has got to be one of the greatest inventions of the 21st Century. Aquafresh toothpaste has come out with a dental floss gizmo in the cap of the toothpaste tube. Aquafresh® Floss 'N' Cap™. It's so simple, I'm surprised they didn't come out with this years ago.

I think it's a gimmick. You've still got to pull the floss out of the cap. And for those of us daily flossers, I would probably run out of floss before running out of toothpaste or vice versa.

Do you really need the floss in the cap taunting you to floss your teeth?! I think it's just another gimmick, as Kem mentions here.

It reminds me of this new Lysol toilet brush I saw at the Wal-Mart Axis of Evil™ this weekend. It was battery-operated, and it automatically dispensed toilet bowl cleaning solution (a la the Swiffer). How lazy can you be?! People will buy anything...
