Innovative Uses for Toothpaste!
If I asked you why you use toothpaste, you’re obviously going to say you use it to clean your teeth! But what if I told you I remove stains with it? Would you believe me? Yes, it’s true! Toothpaste has other alternative uses, and today I’m going to tell you about some of them to help clean your home!
Having children is beautiful but the smell of sour milk in baby bottles is horrible!
With a little toothpaste and water, clean the inside of your bottles to remove unpleasant aromas! Then rinse very well with water!
Carpet stains are obnoxious and don’t always come out with the products on the market! Try the following: place a little toothpaste on the stain and rub with a brush (You can use old bristles—I tend to recycle!), rinse and repeat until the stain disappears! Keep in mind that this is not a magic charm! For very complicated stains you may require a special cleaning service!
If you can remove stains on the carpet, does the same principle apply to fabrics? Yes, it does! Apply to stains and rinse off with water before placing in a washing machine. It is very effective to remove ink spots and shirt collar stains but it is not miraculous. Avoid using whitening pastes on colorful fabrics!!!
Another idea is to reuse brushes for refrigerator seals. This is a narrow space with uneven angles and often gathers dirt and even fungus when you keep the refrigerator closed for a long time. For example, if you take a long trip for 20 days or more. With a little paste and the help of your small brush, disinfect the seals and leave them as good as new! Impressive, don’t you think?
Do you have Jewelry or Diamonds? Awesome! Good for you! Toothpaste is useful for cleaning jewelry and other silver pieces.
Just rub the toothpaste on the object and leave all night. Clean with a non-scratch rag in the morning. You can also make your diamonds shine by using a toothbrush and a little water. Rinse well! Remember: This process shouldn’t be done often but only once in a while!
Your Phone or Tablet screen will never look cleaner than with this trick. If you do not use a screen protector, it can get scratched quickly! Gently rub the screen with a touch of toothpaste and your finger. Rinse with a slightly damp cloth and dry.
Do you have small children who love to paint on the walls? Not to worry! Use a damp cloth and a little bit of toothpaste to remove crayon and pencil stains from your walls.
The paste you use must be safe for your walls, so it is best to test a small area of the wall where it cannot be seen. For high-gloss walls it is important to note that toothpaste can remove brightness, so you may decide to use another product on the market!
Renew your shoes, purses and other leather objects by rubbing a drop of toothpaste with a soft cloth. Rinse with a damp cloth.

For music oriented families, toothpaste is perfect to polish piano keys.
Rub each key (Yes! That’s one by one!) softly with a damp cloth and a little bit of paste. Dry with a clean cloth and ready! This is also useful to polish metal instruments and is safer than chemical polishers!
Use a little toothpaste to polish the faucets in your kitchen and bathroom. And when you rinse, you will refresh the drains too. This will avoid bad odors! A great win-win situation!

Toothpaste also helps you to: Remove stains on garden furniture, remove water marks on furniture and clean the soles of your white shoes!
And if we clean almost everything with toothpaste, why don’t we try the bathroom? It can clean the tartar and stains on the sink, the acrylic fiber on the bathroom walls and even the faucets! Try another trick: if you want to avoid the fog on the bathroom mirror when you shower, rub toothpaste (not gel) on the mirror and clean before you shower!
