Can You Compost Dental Floss?

No, most dental floss products cannot be added to the compost pile. Most dental flosses are made of nylon threads coated with some form of wax. These threads don’t easily break down.

The good news is that there are eco-friendly alternatives out there that can be added to compost piles. For example, Radius sells natural silk floss which is biodegradable.
