Most of us know toothpaste as a paste or gel used as an accessory to clean and maintain the aesthetics and health of our teeth. But, did you know that it’s also one of the most versatile items in your household?
Here are 10 unexpected uses for toothpaste that REALLY work!
Use a small amount of toothpaste on your toothbrush to shine your silver.
Clean Faucets and Fixtures
Rubbing some toothpaste on your faucets with a wet sponge will clean away all the buildup on your faucets.
Clean Your Car Headlights
The chemicals in toothpaste will make your car headlights shine like new.
Clean Up Spilled Makeup
Spilled makeup can stain, but with some toothpaste, it will come right off your countertops.
Sometimes soap and water don’t cut it. Rub a little bit of toothpaste on your hands to get rid of fish or garlic smells on your hands after handling.
Stains on Wood Surfaces
Rubbing a wooden surface gently with toothpaste will get rid of stains. This works especially well with watermarks.
Clean Your Iron
Get those burn marks off your iron with some toothpaste.
Permanent Marker Stains
Toothpaste can also get out permanent marker stains, especially on wood.
Treat Clothing Stains
Lipstick, tomato sauce or grass? No problem! Gently rub a little bit of toothpaste on your clothing or tablecloth stain and let it sit for a short period before you wash it off. Make sure you’re NOT using a whitening toothpaste. This could bleach your clothes.
Dry Up a Zit
Cover your zits with a dab of toothpaste before you go to bed. It will be gone in the morning.
