I recently went to my dentist for a regular and routine appointment. This basically involved cleaning of my teeth by a dental hygenist. The appointment passed uneventfully enough as she worked away with basic dental tools which weren't torture devices. After a while, the hygenist stopped to ask me about my flossing habits. I replied that it was difficult enough, especially since I would need a flip-top head if I were to get to the back teeth.
That brought me to thinking about dental floss. Though thin, it is made of strong stern materials. As I sat in the dental chair I started thinking to myself of the many things it could be used for besides cleaning teeth. When I asked the hygenist what uses she knew of, she told me she knew the complete list, mentioning a few I wouldn't entertain.
Here's a few I was able to come up with:
1. fishing line
2. sewing material
3. impromptu string for cat toys
I knew of more the day of my appointment. Which uses do you know of? What are they?
