20 Creative Uses for Toothpaste

Hand Deodorizer:

The odor fighters and mild abrasives in toothpaste make them a great cleaner for smelly hands. Simply use toothpaste as you would ordinary soap to leave your hands minty fresh!

Shoe Renew:

To Clean and brighten rubber parts of sneakers, just bust out an old toothbrush and some non-gel toothpaste. Scrub on with a little water and wipe away the residue with a damp cloth for cleaner sneakers.

Clothes Iron Cleaner:

I haven’t found a cleaning method more effective for cleaning the buildup off an iron. Simply apply toothpaste to the iron when cool, scrub with a rag and rinse away the gunk!
Diamond Ring Polish: Simply brush your ring as you would your teeth (only use an old brush, of course). The result will be a sparkling diamond and setting if you rinse properly. No need to floss.

Baby Bottle Refresher:

Every parent knows that smell… sour milk… emanating from your precious baby’s food source. To remedy, just put a little toothpaste on your bottle brush and scrub as normal. Rinse thoroughly before reuse.

Crayon Cure:

Is your baby getting a little more mobile now, and decorating the bottom few feet of your walls with crayon marks? Fret not… toothpaste, a scrub brush, and a minimal amount of elbow grease will remove the stains in short order. Clean up residue with a damp towel.

Lipstick Stain Stopper:

I’m not interested in how you got lipstick stains on your clothing, that’s your business! 😉 My business is telling you that a dab of toothpaste rubbed vigorously onto the stain and rinsed will make it as though it was never there.

Wash Away Watermarks:

Honestly, why don’t people use your coasters? It doesn’t matter… toothpaste can get rid of marks left by sweating beverages when gently rubbed on with a dry cloth, rubbed off with a damp cloth, and followed up with your regular furniture polish.

Beach Tar Buster:

Black, gunky feet after a day at the beach can be a bit of a nuisance. Removing it is easy, however. Just wash your feet with some non-gel toothpaste, rinse, and dry.

Piano Polish:

In the same way that toothpaste shines up your pearly whites, it has a great and gentle cleaning effect on the ivory of piano keys. This simple technique even works on the dingy yellowing of modern plastic piano keys.

  1. I Really liked (The 20 creative uses for toothpaste,) especially the one that takes scratches off mobile phone screens. I wanted to read page 2 of what you can do with toothpaste, I clicked on everything that I could and it would still not come up.

    I sure would like to read that second page.
