There is no need to pay extra for a fancy jewelry cleaning when you’ve got toothpaste at home. If you have any silver jewelry that is in need of a good polish then take a clean, soft-bristles toothbrush or a cloth and a tiny amount of toothpaste and gently buff out the jewelry. You can also use this for diamonds. Once you are done cleaning, just rinse well and dry with a microfiber cloth. However, make sure to not use toothpaste on any soft gems such as opal or pearls, in order to avoid scratching.

Well, kids will be kids. And if your kid happens to be an artist in the making, they will sooner or later try to take a go at the biggest canvas in your home, which is the wall.

Is your iron in need of a good clean? Is it no longer smooth and spotless? Don’t let all the collected gunk stain your cloths and hamper your iron’s effectiveness.

#Clean Your Shoes
There are two ways toothpaste can benefit your shoes. The first being to revive some of the whiteness in your white rubber trims. Just take some white toothpaste, one without any colors or gels, and apply straight onto the dirty rims. Rub with a cloth and buff. Then just rinse off the leftover paste and enjoy your whiter looking rims. Another way toothpaste can help clean your shoes is by getting rid of scuffs from leather. Just dab some paste on the scuffed area and rub with a cloth. Then just wipe off any excess toothpaste with a damp cloth. No more scuffs.

#Clean The Sink
Next time a big chunk of non-gel toothpaste falls into the sink, don’t just wash it away. Take a sponge and give it a good scrub all around the sink. The paste acts as a natural abrasive and makes a good cleaner. It also helps to deodorize a smelly drain.
