Dental floss isn’t just for keeping your teeth and gums clean. Floss can be used for more projects around the house than you may have expected. From hanging art to quick fixes, cleaning and kitchen uses, make sure you pocket this little dentist freebie to make your life at home so much easier.
Check out these other truly extraordinary uses for household staples you already own.
Hang home accents
Floss is strong and stretchy, making it a great option when you’re hanging accessories around the house. Plus, unlike braided wire, it won’t ruin the paint on the wall behind. Try attaching floss to not-too-heavy paintings, frames and more.
Slide off fresh cookies
There’s a way to take warm cookies off a baking tray without turning them into a crumbled mess – no need to wait for them to cool. Just slide a piece of floss under your baked goods to keep them from sticking, then slide them gently off.
