Toothpaste Tips

by Rachel Pendleton, Aug 2017

Other than the obvious use of brushing your teeth, did you know that toothpaste can be used for many other tricks?!

  •  Mobile phone screens. Over time unprotected phone screens get scratched, so rubbing in a little toothpaste with your finger and then wiping away with a damp cloth can reduce the scratches!
  • Smelly baby Bottles. To remove the sour milk smell from baby bottles make a mixture of toothpaste and water, scrub with the mixture using a bottle brush and rinse thoroughly.
  • Carpet stains. Apply toothpaste directly onto the stained area and scrub with a toothbrush/soft nail brush, then rinse and repeat until the stain has vanished!
  • Defog your mirror. Rub a little toothpaste into your bathroom mirror and wipe dry, now when you shower your mirror will stay clear! This also works on swimming goggles and shower doors.
  • Bug bites. For ant, mosquito and small bug bites apply toothpaste to cool the skin and prevent itching.
  • Spots. Believe it or not toothpaste is a good blemish cream, it reduces redness and draws out infection! Apply a small amount just before bed and wipe away in the morning.
  •  Water rings on coffee tables. Rubbing toothpaste into stains on tables will eliminate water rings, apply some furniture polish afterwards to shine. Then get the coasters out!
  • Nails. (Fingers and toe nails!) Scrubbing your nails with toothpaste will remove the yellow/orange tinge that appears after wearing coloured nail polish.

So, there you go. Next time you’re at the supermarket pick up a tube to pop under the sink!
