This Old House

What do you use to hang your artwork and pictures on the wall? If you said picture wire, you wouldn't be alone as that's what most use. That said, it can cause damage to your walls, but this dental solution won't. Did you know you could use good old floss to get the job done? Neither did we.

Over at This Old House they've compiled a list of 10 different ways to put dental floss to use in more places than just your mouth (why does that sound so dirty). The one we were more likely to use is for hanging pictures.
