A two-for-one deal on toothpaste certainly won't go to waste when you consider its amazing cleaning capabilities. Squirt some of the white, non-gel variety onto water rings on a wood tabletop, for example, and you can wipe away any reminder of those thoughtless guests who forgot to use a coaster! Simply work it over the affected area using a soft cloth and a gentle, circular rubbing motion—not so hard that you remove the finish from the wood—then wipe away with a lightly damp cloth to reveal your unmarred surface. The grit that so effectively cleans stains from teeth offers just enough abrasion to work the water out of the waxed or polished surface.
