Anyone remember who posted that trick to use dental floss to get off wedding rings? Can't recall which forum it was in. A friend on another board needs it.

Nevermind, found it!

Thanks Letha!

Take a long piece of floss is great. Take one end and run it up under the ring that needs to come off.Leave about 3-4 " then slowly wrap the other end round and round your finger usually over the knuckle make sure the thread is close together. Then take the short end (u put under the ring in the 1st step and slowly wind the ring off your finger.
I cannot tell you how many rings I have removed that way. Even in dire circumstances some people balk at having their rings cut....hope I have been clear enough..Let me know if u have success ! Letha

Yep, scary time, all right. (((((Hugs)))) and prayers for a quick return of that sense of peace and ease that we all used to take for granted. It does get lots better, though, once you know what's up and what you'll need to do to get from here to healed. Keep us posted!
