Apparently, we need to be putting toothpaste on more things than just our toothbrushes. The minty and magical substance usually reserved for our choppers happens to have a plethora of other benefits.
Some are crazy weird, some are pretty logical, but it seems that toothpaste has some hidden uses we’ve got to try!
1. It cleans your shoes
Scuffs, scratches, dirt, be gone! Just make sure your paste is non-gel, and give those sneaks or leather shoes a lil scrub.
2. Clean your jewelry
Diamonds, silver. It’s all the same, and your toothpaste can be used to make it look spankin’ new.
3. Prevent your mirror from fogging.
Scrub on, wipe off. Just make sure it’s non gel.
4. Acne dry up
Toothpaste helps dry those pimples out – just blob some on before you head to bed for the night. You’ll be amazed how quickly it disappears!
5. Destain your clothes
Works with makeup, even the reddest of lipstick. Scrub some on the site of the stain. Just be wary if it’s a whitening toothpaste on colored clothing!
6. Remove crayon from walls
Your kid thought he was the new Picasso, but not for long! You don’t even need to repaint if you scrub hard enough.
7. Buffer up those nails
Toothpaste will help strengthen the enamel and gets rid of those callouses.
8. Water rings on wood
You won’t forget the coaster next time, but for the meanwhile, toothpaste helps get rid of those ugly stains.
9. It cleans baby bottles
Toothpaste is the best way to get rid of the sour smelling aroma in your baby’s cup. Just make your own minty solution.
10. Most obvious is that toothpaste gives us those pearly whites
Toothpaste, you da real MVP.
