We know that toothpaste helps our teeth shine, but what else can it clean? Here are 5 of our favorite cleaning hacks:
One of toothpaste’s best-kept secrets can make your high beams brighter! If your headlights are made from polycarbonate or plastic, overtime, they’re susceptible to oxidation. This makes them look foggy. For a quick fix that won’t break the bank, spread toothpaste evenly over the inside of each headlight. Take a damp cloth and gently rub in the paste too watch those lights shine! For a clean finish, rinse with water. *This trick won’t work on glass headlights, so make sure you double-check before you clean!
The soles of your muddy sneakers desperately need some attention. All you need is an old toothbrush and some non-gel toothpaste. Apply the paste to the toothbrush as you normally would and scrub away for a few minutes at the soles. Wipe down with a damp cloth when you’re done.
Skip the jeweler and clean your bling right at-home. Use warm water and toothpaste to scrub the diamond with an old toothbrush. You stone should shine after about 1 minute of cleaning. Be careful not to get the toothpaste on the setting, though. It can be abrasive and taint the finish.
4. Hair Dye
Never spoil a new hair color with a dyed hairline again! After you finish dying your hair, apply toothpaste to a cotton ball or pad and rub along the hairline until the unwanted stains disappear!
This one works great on food and drink stains! Put non-gel toothpaste on the stain and rub fabric vigorously. Rinse with water. If needed, repeat the process a few more times until the stain is gone.
