Unusual Uses For Toothpaste
Even the most conscious of consumers can have buyer’s remorse regarding a purchase. Sometimes the feeling can come from accidentally buying the wrong brand or flavor of toothpaste that your family tried once but refuses to finish. Instead of cursing yourself, there are plenty of other uses for the product aside from promoting good oral health.
If you have a spare tube of white non-gel toothpaste lying around, some alternative uses for toothpaste include:
Carpet Stain Removal: Nothing can ruin a house party like a red wine stain on the hostesses, carpet. Quick thinking friends can protect their friends from the damage by using an abrasive toothbrush and toothpaste. Simple use the two tools plus clean fresh water, and that should take care of the issue.
Jewelry Cleaner: Clean gemstones can be sparkling and iridescent. A mild toothpaste can do wonders to brighten the shine of any natural stone including diamonds. Since natural stones can be fragile, brushing your jewelry gently with a soft toothbrush, toothpaste and water can help restore the natural luster.
Repair Scratched Discs: There is nothing worse then having your Friday night movie viewing ruined by a skipping or stuck DVD. Urban legend has it that toothpaste can be decent filler on the smallest of scratches and can keep your entertainment on track for the evening.
Underwater Vision: A clean ocean and a clear view are essential for scuba diving and snorkeling. Rubbing a small portion of toothpaste directly onto your eye masks and rinsing well can prevent the devices from fogging up and blocking your view.
Get Your Security Deposit Back: Landlords want to keep every dime of your money and an inspection of your rental property can unearth some reasons why they may do so. If you have marred pristine white walls with nail holes, a little dab of white toothpaste can make the repair look seamless.
