I use the waxed dental floss. You have to double knot it to get it to hold but I love it. I wrap it around 1 1/2 times & then tie a knot & it holds well enough until I get teh 2nd knot tied. When I just wrapped through thr front to the back the floss wouldn't hold & would come loose.

This is how I use the waxed dental floss too. I always double knotted no matter what I was using so I loved that the wax held the knot until I tied it the second time.

I love organza since it kind of grips to itself and I get a tight knot. I get it from UB 1/4"on 50yd rolls for 1.30 so its super cheap that way.
