- In the kitchen. I use dental floss in the kitchen for so many things! When I bake sheet cakes I tie the floss between my fingers and use it for perfect slicing. This also works well to slice boiled eggs and other soft foods like cheese, jello, etc.
- Hanging Pictures. Rather than using wires to hang pictures on the wall, consider stringing dental floss to hang it up instead. Floss is strong and will not mark your walls.
- In the Garden. Back when I had a pretty elaborate garden in my back yard, I would use dental floss to tie tomato plants to stakes. Floss works great to secure your climbing plants, plus the mint flavored floss will help aid in keeping some of those pesky bugs away!
- Crafting. Looking for some great crafting supplies for the kids or your own DIY projects? Floss makes excellent string to make necklaces. Also around the holidays, floss would be perfect to make ornaments. You really can come up with several great DIY Projects (see tip below) and Crafts using the extra floss you have on hand.

- Sew Cool. Don't you just hate when that stupid button keeps popping off your favorite blouse? Instead of thread, next time try using floss. Floss is strong and will keep the button in place. Floss is also good to repair tears in other things like playpens too.
- DIY Clothes Line. If you're vacationing or even camping this is perfect for you. Use Dental Floss to make a makeshift clothes line to let wet clothes, towels, and swim suits dry. It's strong enough to hold a few items like your towels and suits from the beach all day.
- Lift food off baking trays. This really works! Just slide through a strand of dental floss between the cookies or biscuits on your baking tray, and you will be able to lift off the food with no mess or crumble.
