    saving grace

    Dear teachers,

    When you say to someone that he/she is no good in anything by using the phrase 'no saving grace,' which of the following would be correct and more commonly used?

    1. He/She has no saving grace.
    2. He/She has no saving graces.

    Thank you.

    They would both be used. I would probably use 2.
