2. Artwork on the walls

Did your children play with crayons on the walls? Squirt the toothpaste onto it and scrub it off afterwards.



3. Polishing tool

Shiny jewelry, a diamond ring or cutlery. Put some toothpaste on a cloth and rub on to make them shine.



4. No more foggy mirrors

Before showering coat the bathroom mirror with a toothpaste and wipe it off. No more foggy mirrors! It works also with goggles.


5. Cleaning agent

With toothpaste you can clean taps, iron, remove water marks on wooden furniture and revive piano keys, which are made of elephant teeth. However, toothpaste will work just as well on modern plastic piano keys.



6. Fresh bottles
