trailingclouds could use some advice:

I've decided to buckle down and remove all those little guilt-inducing waste-makers and money-suckers in my home...One thing I can't figure out, though, is dental floss. Does anyone know or can think of a way for me to replace this item without having to dispose of anything? I've thought of fishing line (which I already possess), but it seems like it would wear out, and as it is plastic would never biodegrade.
