5 Ways to Clean with Toothpaste

Toothpaste is one of the essential accessories in every house. Except for promoting oral hygiene, toothpaste comes in handy to clean a lot of other things around the house. It is a mild abrasive, commonly made with baking soda, toothpaste can work wonders when it comes to removing stains and scuffs. Here are a few smart ways to get the best out of every toothpaste tube you buy. Let’s take a look:

1. Remove Marks from Walls

When you have small kids at home, seeing crayon marks on the walls becomes quite common. If your little pumpkins are getting creative with crayons, don’t panic. Toothpaste can help you clean their artwork right off the wall. Just take out some toothpaste on a damp cloth or scrub brush and use it to rub the affected areas. Once done, wash the wall with clean water and allow it to air dry.

2. Clean Your Bathroom Sink

The bathroom sink is a part of the house which needs to be cleaned and maintained regularly. If you don’t want your sink to smell unpleasant, one amazing way is – use toothpaste. All you need to do is – drop some toothpaste in the sink and then take a damp sponge to clean the entire bowl. Rinse it thoroughly and see a phenomenal difference.

3. Scrub Your Toilet

Are you looking to clean your toilet but running out of toilet cleaner, again toothpaste can come in handy to solve your this problem. Take a bit of toothpaste and apply it on the areas you want to clean. Then, grab the toilet brush and scrub the targeted spots with it. The toothpaste will not just remove stains but also leave a fresh and pleasant odor.

4. Remove Scuffs on Shoes

If you are in a rush and that favorite pair of shoes is not ready (dirty with debris and other marks), don’t worry. Make use of toothpaste. A dab of toothpaste on a sponge can help you remove those unwanted scuffs from your patent leather, smooth leather or vinyl shoes. Remember, this paste will not work well on suede leather boots or shoes.

5. Clean Your Refrigerator's Seals

Yes, you read it right! As toothpaste help in keeping teeth white and bright, it can also be able to clean seals on the refrigerator. Take an old toothbrush, put a bit of toothpaste on it, and polish those goofy patches on the gasket seal. It will remove all stains and make your refrigerator look bright as new. 

The Bottom Line

These are some primary and incredible uses for toothpaste in every house. Bring these uses to your real-life and save yourself some bucks on cleaning supplies.
