Even with a common kitchen knife, cutting particular foods with a blade can be tedious and rather cumbersome. If you're anything like me, you can rarely get a good cut of anything, let alone a clean piece of cake or a sexy sliver of cheese.

Who should you call upon for help next time you're having a wine and cheese night with the ladies? Your hygiene homie Dental Floss. Make sure to grab an unscented pack, roll out a length of it that'll comfortably sink into whatever you're cutting, hold it taut, and get to cutting:

For those round and smaller cakes, you'll get nice clean slices as precise as your heart desires:

Those looking for more thin and frail slices of cheese off that big block, the floss will let you hone in down to the millimeter:

 And my absolute favorite, cutting a burrito with a knife sucks. Try it with floss:
