Everyone likes a nice smile, but did you ever think that the toothpaste you use to keep your teeth healthy can be useful around your home too?
From cleaning, to stain removal and dealing with pimples and bites, toothpaste has more uses than just cleaning your mouth.
How many have you tried before?
1. Remove scuffs from your shoes
Have your leather shoes seen better days? Bring them back to life with a some help from toothpaste. Just add a little toothpaste on the scuffs of your shoes and rub with a soft cloth. The scuffs will disappear after you wipe them clean.
2. Clean your iron
Get the gunk off the bottom of your clothes iron with the help of the non-abrasive nature of toothpaste. Just apply the toothpaste to your cool iron, scrub with a rag and then rinse clean.
3. Polish a diamond ring
Has the sparkle diminished from your ring? Clean it up in a jiff with a little toothpaste on an old toothbrush. Once you're done scrubbing, just remove the residue with a damp cloth. This is so much easier than going to the jewelry store or paying for an expensive cleaner.
4. Stop itchy bug bites
Nothing ruins a great outdoor experience than being covered in itchy bug bites. Stop those pesky bites from bothering you by adding a drop of toothpaste to the effected area to cure the annoying itch. This will also help to cool down the irritated part of your skin.
5. Remove smell from your hands
Have you been chopping garlic and now no matter how many times you wash your hand the odor remains? Toothpaste can actually help. The ingredients found in toothpaste are able to deodorize your mouth, so the same effect can happen to your hands. Minty fresh!
6. Clear up pimples
Did a pimple pop up just before you have that big staff meeting at work? Dab a little non-gel, non-whitening toothpaste to the effected area and it will be dried up by morning. The toothpaste dehydrates the pimple and absorb the oils so that it disappears quicker.
7. Remove smell from baby bottles
After a while, baby bottles take on the smell of sour-milk. Believe it or not, toothpaste can take care of that! Just add a dab of toothpaste to the end of your bottle brush and scrub the inside of your bottles. After a good rinse, they will be like new again!
