"I have tight teeth, and get stuff stuck in them. This floss works amazingly well, and doesn't get stringy like others."
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.
Hi Jocelyn - thanks for your review, glad you were able to try them all and found your favourite!
Love this stuff! Will definitely be purchasing more once I go through this as well as the refill pack that I ordered!
Hi Megan - stoked that you will be ordering more and that you like our floss >3
Love this stuff and especially love the glass bottle that it comes in. Super easy to travel with as well. Love having a refill and eco friendly floss option!
Hi Meg - thank you so much for the review, we're glad the container and the floss work for you!
I was very pleased with the container and floss. Sleek and minimalist glass container embodies the sustainability mantra, and the floss is easy to use - just like you would any other floss! My only pro tip for switching to use this versus conventional floss, is you might have to spindle out more than you used to. For the corn based floss - this is the one I purchased, and the only one I've tried thus far - it does break/snap between teeth a bit easier than conventional nylon floss. This makes sense given the comparative tensile strength of these two materials, especially when you remember our teeth edges our meant to be sharp and cut things! So not a disappointment; rather, a consideration, as I tend to end up using more floss per floss session. But I know I would MUCH rather use a bit more biodegradable floss instead of less of will-be-in-a-landfill-for-eternity conventional floss. Ultimately, an absolute must for anyone looking to reduce plastic use in the world.
Hi Erick - thanks for the thorough feedback! It's true that it can break a little bit more easily than other floss, especially if you have tighter gaps in between your teeth. But we're stoked to hear that you understand why and are still as motivated as us to reduce your plastic consumption!! We're grateful for you!
Works really well. Love the glass container! Has snapped a few times when I pull too much but not a big issue. Love that its compostable as well!
Hi Lia - great to hear you're enjoying our floss!! Thanks for your support.

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.
How To Use
- 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.
