4. Pop Tab To Hang Art

You’re about to hang your new picture or piece of art and you realize something: you have nothing to hang it with.

Dental floss has so many more uses than just cleaning your teeth. You can use the floss to cut cakes, cheeses, and other soft foods or food that is sliced thinly.
