Not only is dental floss a necessary item used in your daily dental hygiene routine but it can be used in a pinch for numerous other things. Dental floss is something you get from your dentist each time you get your teeth cleaned, usually every six months.
Cutting Food-Floss may be used to cut items that tend to squish when using a knife, such as fruits, cheese, hard boiled eggs and slicing a cake. Take the dental floss and tie it around the item and pull softly to create a perfect slice.
Dripping Faucet Bothering you?-If you happen to be somewhere there is a dripping faucet when you are trying to work or sleep, take a piece of dental floss and tie it around the bottom of the faucet and then guide string down the drain. The water will now slide along the string into the drain rather than dripping constantly.
Cleaning Between Small Cracks and Crevices-Hold floss the same way you would to clean your teeth to remove dirt and other substances that get stuck in tight places, like between piano keys and cracks found on some pieces of furniture. Also use on bathroom faucets if there is build up around the actual facet handles.
We hope you enjoyed these few tips for other uses of dental floss. You may never think of dental floss in the same way again.
