Gently Minted Waxed Silk Dental Floss
This floss has a bit of a learning curve in that unlike the super smooth plastic tape floss that I used, it's 1. not as smooth, 2. thickness not as even, and 3. breaks if pulled too hard.
In the first week or two, I was unsure whether I'd be able to stick with it. On a few nights that I was in a hurry or stressed, I went back to my plastic floss, because I didn't want to have to adapt to this less comfortable floss when I was already in a tense mood. But I was willing to stick with it because it's 0 plastic vs. 100% plastic.
As the weeks went on, I got more used to it. I've been using it for 2 months now, and I have not gone back to my plastic floss for many weeks. I'm completely okay with the drawbacks above - it just takes adapting to, not the end of the world, whereas plastic could contribute to the end of the world in a way. I've stashed my remaining plastic floss to my travel bag, mainly because this floss comes in a glass and I'm a bit worried about breaking it during travels.
I was really excited to try this floss and it did not disappoint! I didn't find that it broke and it is sturdy. I'm happy to say I will now permanently switch to this floss. Thanks etee!
I love that it works as well as dentotape. I love that there is no plastic going into the earth or oceans. I love that it looks like a monarch chrysalis hanging in a glass enclosure! The silk will break on occasion, but what doesn’t?

Team etee is big on keeping their chompers and the houses that they live in (ie their gums) healthy, so having a plastic-free floss option was a no-brainer over in these parts.
Each spool contains 30 metres of our 100% pure mulberry silk, candelilla wax and natural peppermint oil floss (total of 60 metres of floss in each 2 spool box - that's 2/3 the length of a football field of floss!)
