I ordered the silk floss and I thought that it would be more fragile than a conventional floss. Surprisingly, I found that it was very strong. I like the resuable container too. I will have a good dental hygiene in an eco-friendly way !
Hi Pascale - super stoked that you're enjoying the silk floss :) clean teeth, clean planet!!
Makes flossing fun again
Nifty little container, and a quality product. I go through a little more floss than usual because (as advertised) the corn floss isn't ideal for tight-together teeth like mine. Nothing flossing more frequently can't fix, I hope. Next time I'll try the charcoal floss.
Hi Liam - thanks for your review of the corn floss. It is tricky to find the perfect compostable floss but we're glad you're managing well!
Bamboo charcoal floss
I tried them all, silk floss, corn floss, finally with the Bamboo charcoal floss, I found one that worked. The silk and corn floss got stuck between my teeth, broke and frequently I had to use a non-biodegradable floss to get the stuck pieces out. The bamboo charcoal floss works and doesn’t get stuck or break.

Nylon dental floss.
Traditional dental floss is usually made from either nylon (petroleum), teflon (the chemical mouthful polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)), or synthetic wax (petroleum).
These toxins can be absorbed into your bloodstream during those times that you floss a little too hard, or it’s been, say, longer than the suggested three times a day since your last floss.
Discarded dental floss cannot be recycled, takes 30-80 years to break down, and can be harmful to wildlife.
Glass floss containers replace the need for plastic dental floss containers and allow you to refill and reuse instead.
Pull out about 18 inches of floss, cut on the lid of the container.
Wind the floss around your fingers (no need to get all tangled!).
Slide floss gently up and down between your teeth.
*Take care around your gum line.
At the gum line, curve floss into a C-shape against your tooth and gently slide into the space between the gum and your tooth.
Repeat for each tooth.
Cheese to check out those pearly whites.
*Keep your container for future refills.
