26 Things You Can Do With Toothpaste

Although the primary use of toothpaste is to clean and improve the aesthetic appearance and health of teeth, there are also 26 other things that you can use it for. Every household has one and every household uses it at least twice a day. And because of the common availability of toothpaste, you can try everything below. Remember, use only white paste.

1. Removes stain from cloth

 
To take out all kinds of stain like ink or lipstick. Squeeze some on the spot, scrub and rinse.


2. Even out scratches on CD / DVD


If the screen freezes, take out the disc, put some toothpaste on it, scrub and clean it off.


3. Cleans diamond ring

Just squeeze a little on a used toothbrush, wet the ring, scrub gently, rinse and your diamond ring should be look sparkling new.


4. Cleans silver

Toothpaste can be used to polish any kind of silver. It really does bring out the shine in silverwares.


5. Placate burns


Right after you get burnt, put it on. It helps to relieve the sting.


6. Removes crayon from painted walls


Rub the marks with the toothpaste and a damp rag. Wipe with water to get rid of residue.


7. Remove carpet stains


Squeeze some onto the carpet, scrub, rinse and let it dry.


8. Relieves insect bites


Spread a little over either of these and you’ll feel soothed and no itches. Mosquito, flea and ant bites work especially well.


9. Keep girl babies’ bows in their hair


If they don’t have much hair this is particularly useful. It doesn’t pull it out, it just washes out.


10. Clean your nails


Teeth and nails are made of the same material. To clean your nails, squeeze some on top of a toothbrush, wet your nails and brush them thoroughly. Be amazed by the sparkle.


11. Clean shoes


Scrubbing toothpaste with a wet toothbrush over the boots, working shoes and rubber part of sneakers will work. It can also be used to remove scuffs.


12. Put up posters


You can use toothpaste to put up posters without damaging the wall. However, avoid using it for collector posters. It can damage the ink over time.


13. Use it to temporarily seal holes


Can be used as a spackle to fill nail holes. This sounds evil, but you can use it right before you move out of your rented apartment. =P


14. Clean around the bathroom

Use it to clean shower doors and rings around the bath tub. It has an abrasive so that is why it works good.


15. Clean your vehicle’s headlight lenses


Put some toothpaste in a bowl with some water. Use a buffer pad and clean off fog caused by dirt and bugs hitting them.


16. Clean model cars


Hobbyists who collect and build model cars, robots and action figures can certainly use toothpaste to make them nice and shiny.


17. Remove scratches on your watch crystal


Dab some on the watch and scrub it with tissue.


18. Treat acne


Be very careful when using this. Use it at most once a week. Just dab a small amount on a pimple before bed, wake up and it will dry up.


19. Prevent fog in your swimming goggles


Just wipe it on, clean it off. Works well for me.


20. Clean piano keytops


A dab of toothpaste, a soft cloth and some rubbing will usually clean piano keytops and turn them white again.


21. Deodorize smelly hands


Wash your hands with a dab of toothpaste and it will remove smells like onions and other unpleasant odors.


22. Remove scratches on glassware


Polish with a squeeze of toothpaste. Your glassware should be shining in no time.


23. Remove beach tar


Getting that black beach tar on your feet can put a small crimp in your vacation, but it is easy enough to remove. Just rub it with some non-gel toothpaste and rinse.


24. Deodorize baby bottles


Works for sour smelling baby bottles. Scrub with toothpaste and a bottle brush and the bottles should end up smelling clean and fresh.


25. Cleans clothes iron


The mild abrasive in non-gel toothpaste is just the ticket for scrubbing the gunk off the bottom plate of your clothes iron. Apply the toothpaste to the cool iron, scrub with a cloth, then rinse clean.


26. Remove water marks from furniture


To get rid of those telltale watermark rings left by sweating beverages, gently rub some non-gel toothpaste on the wood with a soft cloth.
