When I travel, I take dental floss along with my toothbrush and tooth paste. And at home, we floss daily. A roll of dental floss is also a pretty good item for an on-person survival kit. Or in your EDC bag. It is small and light, has a good amount of cordage, and it fairly strong. You may even be able to split a piece of floss into smaller fibers. I have done that in the past for emergency repairs. 92729B16-A063-44CE-AEF6-71C0FF4EDAF2 by Hanzo posted Aug 25, 2018 at 11:26 I shuck the case to make a smaller carry. Don't need the cutter as I always have a knife (or scissors on a plane). Cordage is a most useful thing to have. Many years ago, at a friend's child's birthday party, they wanted to string up a pinata. But had no string. My little hank of cordage that lived in my pocket saved the day. Some time back, wifee needed cordage for something. I don't remember what it was, but we were out. Oh, I remember. Sandal repair. So I pulled out a hank of bank line and we got her sandals sorted. She was surprised, but only a little, that I had cordage on me. For the sandals, doubled up bank line was not only stronger, but more comfortable than floss. But if she ever had something stuck in her teeth, I would have been good to go too.
