Cutting Hard-Boiled Eggs with Floss

Find cutting hard cooked eggs to be messy and inefficient? With a simple tool, this task will become simple and easy!

Cutting Hard-Boiled Eggs with Floss

Slicing hard-cooked eggs into wedges can be a bit messy and often results in crumbled yolks. It is, however, done easily and neatly using a long piece of unflavored dental floss. Simply pull the floss taut, then slide it lengthwise through the egg, cutting it in half. To cut the halves into wedges, simply slide the floss lengthwise through the center once more.
