Default Proper dental floss usage

A professional in the field of dental hygiene instructed me to use a forearm's length of floss on my teeth, however, I am unclear as to how much floss I am supposed to use for each space between my teeth. I've found that using a different section of floss for every single crevice will expend the entire strand long before I am finished, while repeatedly using the same area of dental floss will cause a disgusting gunk buildup. I want to know if there is some sort of magic number for times I should reuse a section of floss or if I should even reuse at all.

I would say either use more floss or rinse and reuse parts of the floss.
