Help With A Hair Color Mistake: You can use a small dab of white toothpaste to scrub away any stains along the hairline and cover up your oops moment with the hair color.
Soothe A Bee Sting: The alkaline paste helps to neutralize the bee’s venom so spread a thin layer over a bee sting to ease the pain.
Display Artwork: Dab a little toothpaste on the back of papers to ‘glue’ them to the wall. Easy cleanup involves a wet sponge or paper towel when you are ready to take down the art.
Salvage Scratched Glass: A tiny dab of toothpast polishes the glass to remove small scratches until you can find a more permanent solution. Caution: DO NOT use on your car windows!!!
Freshen Your Car: Place a small amount of toothpaste on a paper towel, then fold and leave it in the car with the windows cracked. The sodium bicarbonate freshens while you are away and leaves your car smelling great.
Refresh Silver: Use toothpaste to polish old silver and restore the shine. I did this when I was little and it really works!!!!!
Clean Up Nails: The cleaning agents in toothpaste can help remove the yellow from your fingernails after they have been abused with nail polish.
Fog Proof Goggles: Rub some toothpaste on the inside of goggles and then rinse to have fog free goggles for swimming.
Get Grass Stains Out Of Denim: Using toothpaste as a prewash for grass stains on denim helps to break them down and remove them better than not doing it at all.
Spruce Up Leather: Like with the silver above, toothpaste can bring back some shine to white leather. Just polish and wipe clean with a damp cloth.
