    Hey, I've used thread for this, too. Who has time to run to the bathroom for floss when thread is right there? Yes, I've also had the thread break & get stuck so I still had to go for floss. Oh well, it's worth it for the times it worked. Ha.

    I read this and I am still laughing at my miss interpretation..How do you "use thread instead of going to the bathroom"? Thought for sure there was a new use for thread
    I use needles sometimes instead of dental floss.. but dental floss is great for bead work..(gotta get off QB and get some projects done!)

    Hey, I've used thread often as dental floss, I just triple it. I also carry dental floss in my travel sewing kit, the glove compartment, my purse, etc. Can't stand having something stuck in my teeth!!! Drives me nuts!
