8 ingenious uses for toothpaste
You may think that the only use for toothpaste is to keep your mouth squeaky clean and cavity-free. However, its abrasive texture and cleaning power makes it a useful household cleaning tool.
One word of advice: when cleaning with toothpaste, use regular white toothpaste instead of the gel version, as that may cause your hard work to backfire.
