At Green Dental of Alexandria, we always recommend that you use your toothpaste for cleaning your teeth. However, we also value the importance of using the items you have on hand for other helpful purposes around the house. As it turns out, your toothpaste can be an effective cleaning solution for all types of stubborn stains – not just the ones on your teeth!
If you’ve suddenly decided to switch brands or flavors or you simply have an extra tube hanging out in your drawer, consider these common household items that can be cleaned or polished with that toothpaste:
- Erase scuff marks from your shoes
- Polish silver jewelry
- Defog your goggles
- Brighten car headlights
- Remove crayon marks from a wall
- Shine piano keys
- Clean water stains from wooden floors or surfaces
- Buff away scratches from a CD
Who says a tube of toothpaste isn’t one of the most valuable investments? Not only does fluoride toothpaste keep your teeth and gums healthy, it can also save you some money on expensive household cleaning products. Stock up and enjoy the benefits of toothpaste in your home – just don’t forget its primary job of cleaning your smile!
