Silk Floss + Refillable Container
“It may be odd to review floss but I'm a dentist. I have tried several brands in my over-15 years in dental, and trust me, this one is good. ”
Mable Floss Container is a great zero-waste addition to your dental care routine. The floss is made with ahimsa silk, a non-violent method of silk harvesting, and is 100% compostable. The floss has a hint of peppermint essential oil and is coated with candelilla wax to better glide in between teeth. The stainless steel dispenser is made with food-grade stainless steel and is smash proof, making it ideal for travel or on the go flossing.
Each container comes with 1 spool of floss (33 yards).
HOW TO USE ITDispense your ideal length of floss and wedge between teeth to remove plaque and bacteria while enjoying the fresh taste of organic peppermint and tea tree. Vegan dental floss can be composted after use if available.

ABOUT THIS BRANDAlexey, Emma, and Gilmar, three friends from San Francisco teamed up to create MABLE, a super-stylish and eco-friendly toothbrush with a 100% biodegradable bamboo handle. They designed the MABLE brush for the modern home and lifestyle, to show just how easy—and chic—it can be to make a sustainable switch. MABLE, in an effort to educate the next generations on sustainable choices, launched their very own Buy Give Teach program. Through this program, they visit schools in their local community to teach kids about the power they have to affect change, just by making small sustainable choices.
It may be odd to review floss but I'm a dentist. I have tried several brands in my over-15 years in dental, and trust me, this one is good. The floss is thinner, but does not get caught in tight spaces. If you have rough fillings or crown work, it may get stuck. It did not shred, which I had expected at first glance. It was smooth as it passed between the teeth, and did a great job of removing plaque and food. My gums and teeth feel so clean. I do prefer a floss that's broader for myself, but I would repurchase this floss. I love that it's biodegradable, refillable, and most importantly works. The container is perfect for my purse, so I have some handy at all times.
Definitely NOT odd to review floss! We love hearing your experience and so happy to be able to help you discover Mable's Silk Floss. Everyone needs to incorporate biodegradable and refillable floss into their lives.
Mable silk floss
The floss breaks pretty easily in my teeth. Love the idea but not sure it will work for me.
Hi Lyda, Thank you for sharing your experience with the Mable Silk Floss and we are sorry to hear it didn't work for you! We appreciate the feedback and please feel free to email us if you are in need of any recommendations in the future : )
I’m thrilled with this option. I’m consciously starting down a path to minimize plastics and especially single use plastics so this is a great replacement product
Thank you so much for this review Paula. We agree, this is such an easy swap. So happy to have it here for you, and you get the refills whenever you're ready. Hero On!
Unfortunately, not for me :(
I simply adore the container, the zero waste option, etc. Really, this is the perfect-looking dental floss ever, but I'm so disappointed with the floss itself. After a few years of using drTung's Smart Floss, this one is just not it and I don't like the feel of it in my mouth.
Hi Michal, Thank you so much for this review - we appreciate hearing from you and will pass on your feedback!
Love this floss. I'm picky about floss (my husband and I legitimately argue over which floss to buy), so I put off finding a zero waste option because I didn't want to give up on my Desert Rose brand plastic case one that took me so long to find. Feel so lucky to have nailed it on the first try with Mable!
We definitely understand the struggle with finding the perfect floss! We are so glad that you have found a zero waste option that checks all the boxes!
