Clean the Sink
Out of the Fog
A foggy mirror can be a big hassle when you need it to get ready after taking a shower. Rubbing a non-gel toothpaste on the mirror and then wiping it off just before using the shower will prevent fog from clinging to it, so don’t need to waste precious time waiting for the bathroom to air out.
Iron it Out
Nothing is worse than ironing a clean shirt only to dirty it from the gunky build-up on the bottom of the iron. Luckily, a filthy iron can be cleared up with toothpaste. With the iron cool and unplugged, scrub the bottom with toothpaste on a rag and wipe the surface clean. Simple but effective!
Erase Crayon from the Wall
Are your kids a little too creative with their artwork? A scrub brush and a little toothpaste is the perfect way to remove waxy crayon stains from the walls without hurting the paint. And because the process is simple and non-toxic, you can even have your little ones scrub away the mess themselves.
Remove Water Rings
A scratched DVD isn't the end of your movie collection. It is possible to save your favorite flick by dabbing a tiny bit of toothpaste onto the scratch and rubbing it all over the disk in circles with a soft towel. Wipe away the excess with a slightly wet towel and you are ready to press play.
