why does SmileDirect whitening kit tell me not to floss before use?

I just had pork chops for dinner. I was getting ready to do my usual routine of brushing and flossing before bed and then whiten my teeth. The directions state "do not floss, only brush" but I'm pretty sure i'd be leaving some pork chops stuck in my teeth. Has anyone flossed and used the whitening kit? Has anything happened? I feel gross just brushing and not flossing. but i want to follow directions.

     whitening could weaken the tooth enamel and flossing might damage the tooth's surface.
