Dental Floss in the Kitchen
5 Tips

Dental floss is not only for cleaning between your teeth - it also is a handy kitchen tool!

When a recipe calls for splitting a cake into two or more layers horizontally,  toothpicks and dental floss make this task easy.  Use several toothpicks placed at the proper level (use a ruler if you want precision sized layers) around the outer circumference of the cake, and then use a two-foot piece of waxed or unwaxed dental floss to make a clean straight cut. Just be certain that it is the unflavored type or your cake will have a hint of mint (which you might enjoy!).

Use dental floss to slice crumbly cheeses such as goat cheese or bleu cheese

Use floss to cut a cookie log into individual cookies.

Dental floss can sub in the kitchen for twine when tying herbs and veggies.

No – Do not use in oven.
