And if that's not available in the area where you live a double thread of waxed dental floss does the job fine too  bear_grin , always available at your drugstore / pharmacy round the corner.

Thanks Marianne I've read that many use dental floss and wondered how it would work , would be a good standby if you ran out of your normal stuff !   bear_thumb
