Thursday's Quick Tips

Today's Quick Tip focus is on toothpaste. 

Did you know that toothpaste can be used for so many things other than just cleaning your teeth?

These are only a few that I am aware of and found.

  • Cleaning Eye Glasses - Rinse both sides of the glasses to remove dust or other particles that might scratch the glasses. Use regular toothpaste to polish the glasses. Do NOT use gels or paste that include added ingredients for whitening. Rub gently so as to not scratch the glasses. Rinse the paste away and then use a soft cloth to buff.
  • Brighten Fingernails - Add toothpaste to a nailbrush and clean tops and bottoms of nails.
  • Defog Goggles and Sunglasses - Rub a small amount of toothpaste onto goggles to keep them from fogging up.
  • Remove Odors from Hands - Use toothpaste when washing hands after handling onion, fish or garlic.
  • Shine Jewelry - I have used a little toothpaste on a soft toothbrush to gently clean jewelry. Rinse thoroughly afterwards.

I'm sure there are many other uses. I would love for you to share any additional tips you might have.

  1. Well I wouldn't think that it could do all that! Now I'm going to have to give it a shot. Thanks for stopping by my blog :).

  2. Nice list. I'm gonna try the toothpaste on my fingernails because nail polish just doesn't last that long on my fingers. White toothpaste can also defog car headlights, I wrote a post about it on my cleaning blog. I would love for you to visit and share you thoughts.


  3. Great tips! We use it to defog bathroom mirrors and it works great! :)
    Have a nice weekend~

  4. Cool tips - I've cleaned my diamond ring like that for years ;-)

  5. hmmm, I am going to try this in the summer when my nails are stained from gardening and weed pulling!

    Great tips!

  6. Good morning! Thanks for leaving me a comment, wanted to come over and check out your blog. I was intrigued by the uses for toothpaste. I happen to cut an onion yesterday and I can still smell the onion on my hands. I'm going to have to give this a try! Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. I will have to try this on my nails. Thanks for sharing.
