9+ things you didn’t know you could clean with toothpaste:
Starting a cleaning project can be daunting, but with the right preparations, it can be much easier.
One thing to keep in mind is the type of toothpaste you use. Gel-based toothpaste usually contains a dye that could discolour or stain certain materials, so it’s best to stick to the standard, white toothpaste.
This will help avoid any unwanted accidents as you’re cleaning. Once you’ve picked the right toothpaste, take a few minutes to clear the area you’ll be working in and lay down some old towels or rags.
This will help protect surfaces from scratches and scuffs as you clean. With these simple steps, you can be sure your next cleaning project goes off without a hitch.
1. The soles of your shoes.
– Just apply a small amount of toothpaste to a clean cloth and rub it into the soles of your shoes. The toothpaste will help to remove any dirt and grime.
