Who knew floss or the floss container had so many uses, it's like a mini utility belt or a swiss army knife in your purse. You can use floss to cut cake or tie up your turkey or chicken and hang pictures. The little cutter on top of the floss container can be used as scissors, if you sew or do certain crafts and don't have a pair of scissors to cut your thread just pull out your floss and cut it, perfect on an airplane since scissors aren't allowed. Just a little advice, keep it under wraps when going through security or they may confiscate it as a weapon!!!!
