Other Uses for..."Toothpaste"

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

*Clean tarnished jewelry.  I do this all the time,  I just put a little toothpaste.  (Usually the old fashion plain white toothpaste on my finger and rub it all over my tarnished jewelry.  I have had to use an old toothbrush to get into small crevices at times.  Rinse and it's sparkling new again.

 

*Clean your clothes iron.  the mild abrasive in non-gel toothpaste is just the right stuff for scrubbing the gunk off the bottom plate of your clothes iron.  Apply the toothpaste to the cool iron, scrub with a rag, then rinse clean.

 

*Deodorize baby bottles.  Baby bottles inevitably pick up a soUr milk smell.  Toothpaste will remove the odor in a jiffy.  Just pu some on your bottle brush and scrub away.  Be sure to rinse thoroughly.

 

 

Please share your ideas!!!

I have many times used it to fill in nail holes before I painted.  I read about it in a home improvement magazine!

I should experiment with this ... smear whitening toothpaste directly on your teeth then wait before brushing - more effective than just brushing alone and cheaper than a separate whitening product.

If I am remembering right I think I have done that a few times myself, a long time ago.
