Social media users were quick to mock Apple’s AirPods when they were first unveiled back in September, calling them electric toothbrush heads and their containers, dental floss dispensers.

But who’s laughing now, huh? AirPods enthusiasts, that’s who. It seems that the dental hygiene similarities have an upside: Disguise.

Yep, some AirPod users have begun creating stickers to deter would-be thieves from rolling them for their expensive wireless headphones.

Just look at these innovative DIY jobs, made to look like dental floss packaging.

Pre-designed stickers are even being sold on Etsy for $7.10, which is a bargain considering if you lose them, they’re $69 each to replace. Ouch.

But with great ideas come great risk. In this case, the risk of losing your AirPods altogether, because you thought they were old dental floss and throw them in the trash.

Not to mention the fact that now thieves may become extra vigilant when it comes to checking those floss dispensers.

Well, it was good while it lasted.
