Non-gel toothpaste is no longer just for fresh breath and pearly whites. Most people are aware of the “off-label” uses of toothpaste, such as cleaning jewelry or repairing minor scratches on sunglass lenses. These things are made possible by the baking soda inside of the toothpaste. That's why so many dentists recommend brushing with baking soda - it's cheap, easily accessible at the store, and it's something most people probably already have in their homes.
Often times, you may find toothpaste in business restrooms. It’s possible that the employees / owners of the business may be on top of their oral hygiene game, but it’s just as likely that they are aware of the many uses of toothpaste. While SERVPRO of Hesperia / Apple Valley doesn’t use toothpaste on the job, we do have some cool tips we can offer you.
- Use it to clean your white shoes. Grab a damp sponge and scrub, or leave toothpaste on the affected area outside to dry for a few hours. Then, all you have to do is shake off the dried up, powdery toothpaste. BAM - good as new.
- Use an old toothbrush (obvious, I know, but better safe than sorry) and some toothpaste to scrub the tiled floors in your home or business.
- Use toothpaste to polish your jewelry.
- Use toothpaste to clean your phone screen. Don’t go overboard with it.
- For the musicians: toothpaste cleans piano keys.
- Use toothpaste on ceramic or glass coffee mugs.
