Toothpaste toothpaste 15 Uses for toothpaste that don't involve teeth toothpaste stock 150504 tz d566cd154db1c665ff6783d90625b56e

Apart from the obvious use of toothpaste (we hope we don’t have to clarify this for you), here are 15 other uses for toothpaste that don’t involve teeth: 

Carpet Stains

Squeeze toothpaste directly onto the carpet stain and scrub it.  Then rinse and repeat the process until the stain disappears. Toothpaste can penetrate even the deepest stains on your carpet.

Cellphone Screen

Your cellphone screen, left unprotected, will become hopelessly scratched over time. Lightly rub the screen with a touch of toothpaste and your finger. Dampen a cloth and use it to wipe off the excess toothpaste when you’re done.

Piano Keys

Old piano keys can be cleaned spotless with toothpaste. Rub each key gently with a damp, cotton swab and a touch of paste. Wipe dry and buff with a clean cloth.

Pimples

It helps reduce the redness and draws out infection. Plain white pastes work best for this purpose. Leave it to dry on them overnight and they will be gone by the morning.

Bruises

Apply a mixture of toothpaste and lotion to the wound and put a band-aid over it. Wash the paste off in the morning and reapply for two or three nights.

What your nails say about your health

Nails

A whitening toothpaste with peroxide also will remove the orange or yellow tinge created by extensive use of nail polish.

Water Stains on Furniture

The stubborn water spots on your table can be removed easily with some toothpaste.

DVDs and CDs

Remove shallow scratches and smudges from discs by applying a thin coating of toothpaste and rubbing gently. Rinse thoroughly and buff with a soft cotton cloth. 

Goggles

Cleaning your swimming goggles with toothpaste will leave a thin-layered film on them and prevent them from fogging.

Headlights

Eliminate the haze on your headlights by thoroughly cleaning the headlight, then rubbing in a glob of toothpaste. Follow up with a good buffing to even out the glass.

Bug Bites

Apply toothpaste to sooth itching and cool the skin. This also helps with regards to bee stings. 

Ink Stains

Apply the toothpaste directly to the stained area with a bit of water and rub hard before popping in the washer.

Car Scratches

Put some toothpaste on a soft cloth and rub it on the stains on your car and it will be shiny again.

Burns

Plunge the affected area under cold water to rapidly bring down the skin temperature. After the acute phase is over, smear non-gel toothpaste thickly over the burn until the skin cools. Finally, apply a healing agent.

Hand Deodorizer 

Remove the stench of onions, fish, garlic and other odoriferous foods from your skin by scrubbing briefly with toothpaste.
