Toothpaste Tips & Tricks

Toothpaste is one of those household products that can be used for a variety of different things. The modern-day tube of toothpaste that most individuals use today has actually been around since the late 19th century. Consumers have had over a century to discover all of the amazing things that this product is capable of. Not only is it great for cleaning your teeth, but it has tons of alternative uses that you probably could have never imagined. Here are some unique things that your toothpaste can do!
 
Clearing Skin
 
You’ve probably heard about toothpaste having the ability to erase a blemish overnight. While it’s true that toothpaste does have drying properties that can help reduce redness and make a blemish more manageable, it’s not a good idea to use it all the time. Toothpaste can also severely clog your pores, so it has the potential to make breakouts worse. Use this trick with discretion and for skin emergencies only!
 
Cleaning
 
Have you ever gotten dirt on white tennis shoes but wanted to clean them with harsh bleaching chemicals? Toothpaste is actually an excellent way to remove dirt and debris off of the rubber part of your tennis shoes. With the help of a toothbrush, you’ll be able to get an even deeper clean. Your sneakers will look as good as new before you know it!
 
Removing Chewing Gum
 
Whether you have gum stuck in your hair or on the bottom of your shoe, toothpaste might allow you to remove it a lot faster and with much less difficulty. Toothpaste can break down some of the sticky particles in bubble gum just like it does with particles on your teeth! 
 
Cleaning Diamonds
 
Many people don’t think about cleaning their jewelry. Especially if you have an expensive piece such as a diamond ring or necklace, you’re going to want to keep it looking its best. Using just a small amount of toothpaste with water can make your diamonds shine brighter and appear more radiant.
