I have been using and recommending these soft picks since they were introduced by Sunstar. They are great! They are soft but sturdy and can be used anywhere. They are portable which makes them very desirable. You don't have to depend on a toothpick after eating out, because you can have soft picks with you! You can use them in the car, in an airplane,watching tv or before bedtime. It's a great design and it is easy to hold and maneuver between the teeth. They are one time use and easily disposed of.
