Floss Hacks

Dental floss is good for more than plucking food from between your teeth. It can also take a stubborn ring off your finger, cut a cake, and help dry clothes. Take a look at these floss hacks.

1. DENTAL FLOSS RING REMOVAL

Step 1: Pull about a foot of floss from your roll.

Step 2: With your palm facing up, thread one end of the floss under the ring.

Step 3: Wind the floss down the length of your finger in a circular motion, giving extra attention around the knuckle.

Step 4: Secure the end of the dental floss through the last loop.

Step 5: Grab the piece of floss near your palm and start unwinding. As the floss rolls down your finger, the ring will move, too.

2. HANGING PICTURES

You can use un-waxed dental floss to tie to the back of a picture frame and hang it on your wall. Floss won’t chip or scratch your wall like wire.

3. CUTTING A CAKE

Step 1: Cut a piece of floss longer than your cake’s width.

Step 2: Wrap the ends of the floss around each of your index fingers.

Step 3: Start slicing using both hands!

4. DRYING CLOTHES

Floss can make an easy indoor clothing line in a jam. Tie it to two stable anchors, like a shower rod and shower head. Don’t worry, it’s strong enough to hold your soggy clothes!

5. STRINGING JEWELRY

You can use floss to restring a broken necklace. Kids can also make their own jewelry by threading macaroni and beads through floss.
