Climbing plants like to grow upward. Put a wooden dowel in the soil that they can wrap around, then keep them from breaking off by tying around a bit of dental floss. You can also grow your plants right in a container you already own.
Use floss as the string on banners, balloons, popcorn strings and floral garlands instead of investing in specialty craft supplies.
Silence annoying drips
If a dripping tap is giving you a headache, remedy the noise with floss until you have a chance to fix the leak for good. Tie floss around the tap head, making sure the other end of the string is guided into the drain. The drops of water will slide quietly down the floss instead of thudding into the sink below.
