Top 30 amazing use of toothpaste

Toothpaste will keep your smile in great shape but it's also pretty handy in cleaning up around the house, polishing and making your stuff look much better. Let’s check out these top 30 amazing use and tricks of toothpaste that will help your life a little bit easier.

Toothpaste is a mild abrasive, often made with baking soda, that removes dental plaque. That same abrasive action works wonders on removing scuffs and stains on everything from walls to shoes. You can even use an old toothbrush for small items you're cleaning with toothpaste.

Curling irons, hair straighteners, and curlers can get a gummy coating from hair products. Toothpaste removes the gunk easily without damaging the appliance surface. Put a dab of toothpaste on a dry cloth and wipe away the buildup. Finish by wiping with a damp cloth and allow the surfaces to air dry.

29. Cleans Scratches from DVDs and CDs

People don’t use CDs as much as they once did, but if you recall, when they got scratched your CD was rather useless.Well, the same rules apply to DVDs and video games today. Instead of thinking your favorite games and movies are finished, just scrub the scratches gently with toothpaste.

In the same way mild abrasives in toothpaste remove stains from your teeth, they can also remove tarnish from silver. Apply a dab of white paste toothpaste (not gel) to tarnished silver and rub very gently with your finger or a soft cloth. Then, rinse well with warm water and buff to a shine with a soft cloth.

27. Removes Scuff Marks from Linoleum

A dab of toothpaste on a soft cloth or sponge will remove scuffs from smooth leather, patent leather, or vinyl shoes. Work on a small area at a time and then buff away the residue and scuffs with a soft cloth. Remember, it won't work well on suede leather shoes or boots.

26. Removes Gum from Hair

Spread toothpaste over the gum, leave for a few minutes, then you should be able to gently pull the gum free. Apparently the toothpaste breaks down the sugar in the gum, as it does when you're brushing your teeth, thereby loosening it from the hair. Wash your hair clean with warm water, then use a towel to dab it dry.

25. Whiten Piano Keys

Vintage pianos have keys made from ivory (teeth) so toothpaste works well to clean away dirt and scuffs. Modern piano keys are made from plastic but toothpaste works equally well for cleaning. Use a small amount of toothpaste and an old toothbrush to reach tight areas and then wipe down with a damp cloth.

24. Shine Up Sneakers

If you have tennis shoes that have the white rubber parts on them, then you know how quickly new shoes begin looking like old shoes when the white part gets dirty.

Well, you can now quickly fix that by putting toothpaste on a toothbrush and scrubbing the white parts of the shoe until they shine like new.

23. Deodorize baby bottles

Baby bottles will develop a smell after prolonged periods of use and getting rid of the smell isn't always easy. Toothpaste might be the solution you've been looking for to remove the smell. A little bit of a water and toothpaste solution will reduce the smell of sour milk and get you back to enjoying baby smell.

Whitening toothpaste, especially those that include baking soda, will have your nails runway-ready in just ten minutes. After removing your polish, layer the toothpaste on your nails and let it sit for ten to fifteen minutes. Once time is up, grab a nail brush or toothbrush to gently scrub the nails under warm water. C'est tout! Your nails will be visibly brighter and whiter. If you are dealing with a severe case of staining, you can repeat the process over the course of a few days.

We know you can use a toothbrush to polish your headlights but add a little toothpaste to eliminate headlight haze. A car has countless small crevices in need of a good cleaning. You can keep both your head and tail lights clean using a toothbrush and soapy water. Additionally, if your headlights are especially dirty, use toothpaste and a toothbrush to remove the grime.

Use a small blob of regular white toothpaste (not gel), get comfy and rub that stuff around and around your mask. Take a short break, then get rubbing again. Put a good movie on and keep going, yes it’s tedious! You could use a cloth, or an old toothbrush too. Some GTS recommend leaving the toothpaste to dry overnight before washing it off.

Some people like a minty-smelling mask, and others find any toothpaste residue irritating to the eyes – take your pick!

19. Block out any smells

If you have problems with onion or fish odors lingering on your hands after preparing food, just squirt a dab of toothpaste into the palm of your hands. Rub your hands together for a few seconds to reach every surface and rinse well. The odor will be gone. You may even see that your fingernails look whiter and brighter.

1. Squeeze a small amount of toothpaste onto the ink stain. Use a paste-based dentifrice rather than a gel. Avoid artificial colors or sparkles. Natural toothpaste works the best.

2. Rub the toothpaste into a stain on fabric. You can use your fingers or an old toothbrush, or fold the stained cloth in half and rub the two halves together.

3. Rinse the cloth with cool water. You can hold it under a faucet or run it through a washing machine.

4. Repeat Steps 1 through 3 as necessary. It might take several tries to remove the stain completely.

5. Rub a little toothpaste on ink-stained skin, rinse with cool water, and repeat as necessary.

17. Sink Cleaner

If you drop some toothpaste in the bathroom sink, don't just rinse it away. Grab a damp sponge and use it to clean the entire bowl. Rinse well and buff dry. It will even leave the drain smelling minty fresh.

Using toothpaste is really effective to remove small surface scratches from soft plastics on small household items like frames or storage boxes. You'll want to use a non-gel paste and if you can find one with baking soda in it, that's an added bonus. Simply apply a pea-sized amount to a microfibre cloth or cotton cloth and rub it into the clean scratched area using circular movements. Do this for a couple of minutes or until the scratch is no longer visible. Rinse, dry and this should be enough. If not, you can repeat.

13. Iron Cleaner

Cover the cold plate of the iron with non-gel toothpaste and let it like this for 2-3 minutes. To polish the surface, wipe it with soft cotton towel with gentle circular motions. Rinse the toothpaste. Turn the iron on maximum temperature and push the steam button, to clean any toothpaste residue, left in the steam vents.

If there are mineral buildups in the steam vents dip a cotton bud in thick paste made of baking soda and water and gently clean the holes. Rinse with water and run the steam to clean the residues from the paste.

Do you like to store your food storage containers with the lids on so you don’t lose them? I used to do that for simplicity sake (you never miss a lid that way.)

Crayons are great when used appropriately but when your wall gets used as a canvas, fight back with that fluoride-filled tube of toothpaste. Smear some on the wall and rub with a damp cloth to remove the crayon marks. Of course, you can always try a more abrasive approach. Or take away junior's crayons and turn them into a gift.
