  1. Navy boot camp we used dental floss to reinforce the loop on our pea coat. Don't know what they do about it now. Maybe just cry in their safe space.

    Dental floss is great for sewing on hard use buttons, like pants or a heavy coat, especially if they keep breaking with regular thread. I use it to repair buttons on my hunting clothes and its always a one time fix.

  10. Thanks! As a soldier we used to use floss to sew buttons back onto our field jackets as it lasted longer than regular thread. In 2011 I did a field repair to a rucksack using floss, and it's still good!

  11. As a crocheter, I sometimes use the Navajo ply (aka chain ply) method to get a triple-thick strand of yarn off the skein. You could use it on dental floss, too, for a quick and easy way to get a thicker strand. There are YT videos on how to do it.

  12. In this same vein, People seem to have forgotten about cheap, available, binder twine in favor of expensive paracord. The price of twine is usually 1/10 of paracord, and will do just about the same thing as well.
    Last summer I rigged a sun shade in my yard with binder twine. It lasted from May until the first snow.

  13. how about cheap braid fishing line ? you could do even more with that and cheaper too maybe another vid cheers keep up the top vids
