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.
