Silk Dental Floss
Did you know that traditional dental floss is actually made of plastic? If everyone in just the US flossed as recommended by the American Dental Association, the used floss would circle the planet more than 1,200 times. And the plastic containers? We'd fill a landfill the size of a football field six stories high (the equivalent of 2,184,000,000 canisters). No, thank you.
(Thank you to Viajar & Amar for doing that math so we didn't have to.)
This refillable silk dental floss is our go-to solution to keep our teeth healthy and bright. The floss itself is silk coated in vegan candelilla wax, and is packaged in stunning glass and stainless steel canisters that can be continually refilled.
Each glass canister comes pre-filled with one 33-foot spool of floss and one additional 33-foot spool. Refill packs include two 33-foot spools, without the canister.

Made in the USA
I have always used plastic flossers and have found cornstarch alternatives, but they still have plastic. I decided to give this floss a try and I have been pleasantly surprised. The floss has only broken once or twice in my tightly spaced teeth (slow and gentle usually solves my breaking issues) and I love that I'm not using as much plastic. I've been using it for about a month and decided to order more.
Maybe my teeth are too tight but the floss did not hold up
Love the bottle, and the floss. However, I have tight contacts for my teeth so it does break a little more easily then other flosses when I floss. Being a little slower and very gentle makes it work just fine, though.
I floss A LOT... I keep this product on the arm of my couch and one in my car (these are my floss spots). I have been using this product for almost a year and have only had the floss break a couple of times. Knowing that this floss isn't plastic nylon string in a plastic container makes me feel guilt-free about utilizing it. I throw it in with my food waste
I love the concept of this natural product & it’s packaging but the silk breaks very easily. Even when I doubled the floss up, it constantly breaks and made flossing a frustrating process. Please make this floss stronger - I really want to love it!
Oh no! I'm sorry to hear this floss isn't the best solution for you. If you find a stronger alternative, please let us know so we can look into it ourselves!
