Executive Maids Suggests New Uses for Toothpaste
Removes Scuff Marks…Can you believe that just a dab of toothpaste can remove scuff marks from your favorite pair of leather shoes? It’s simply amazing! Just dab a little on the scuff marks, rub the area with a soft cloth, and then wipe clean with a damp cloth. You will make them look like new!
Keep steam off your mirror while in the shower…If you are tired of the fog and steam that builds up on your bathroom mirror after your shower, then try this trick: put a tiny speck of toothpaste on your mirror and leave it there for a few seconds and then wipe it off. This will not prevent fog or steam from showing up, but it will cause it to not be as heavy as it was before. This does not just work on mirrors but also windows, goggles and so on.

Cleans Piano Keys…Are the keys on your old piano looking yellow and dingy? Make them look brighter by cleaning them up with some toothpaste on a soft toothbrush, then after a little scrubbing, wipe them down with a damp cloth. This only makes perfect sense, since the little ivories are essentially elephants teeth. This trick also works well on modern pianos even though their keys are covered with plastic rather than the real stuff!Cleanse
Cleans tennis shoes…the rubber part…Try a little of the non-gel variety on one of your old toothbrushes to clean and whiten the rubber sides of your tennis shoes! After scrubbing them, take a damp cloth to clean it off and they’ll look almost new!
Toothpaste works as an excellent polisher for silver & CDs… Toothpaste is also a useful tool for getting scratches off of surfaces made of plastic and even to get rid of scratches on CD’s.
Clean "Gunk" Off Your Iron…Non-gel toothpastes contain a mild abrasive, which is just what you need to scrub the "gunk" off the plate of your iron. Apply it to your iron while its cool and scrub with a rag, then rinse well.
Make Your Diamond Ring Shine…Next time your brushing your teeth, take your toothbrush and run it over your diamond ring to make it sparkle! Clean off any residue with a damp cloth.
Clean Your Watch Band…A little toothpaste on an old toothbrush will allow you to scrub all of the dirt away from your watch band. Rinse carefully so the watch don’t get water in it. Polish with a soft cloth.
Baby Bottle Deodorizer…Are your baby’s bottles starting to smell like sour milk? Toothpaste works well to remove this odor! Just put a little bit on the bottle brush and start scrubbing. Be sure to rinse the bottle out well.
Goggles Defogger…Wearing fogged-up goggles is not only frustrating but can be dangerous as well. To prevent this, coat the goggles with toothpaste and wipe off.
Shines Chrome…You can find many commercial cleaners containing a very fine abrasive that are designed to make your chrome shine, but if you don’t happen to have one of these cleaners handy, try a little non-gel toothpaste instead (which also contains a mild abrasive) It will work just as good. Smear it on and polish the chrome piece with a soft, dry cloth.
Cleans Your Bathroom Sink, Destroys Odors From Drain…Non-gel toothpastes work just as good as any other bathroom cleaner when it comes to cleaning out your sink. How handy can you get, it’s sitting right there at your fingertips so why not use it? OR…if your family is like mine, they drop gobs of it in the sink while brushing their teeth so just take a sponge or cloth and make good use of their waste! Rinse it out and see it shine! An additional bonus even! This will also destroy any odors coming from down inside the drain.
Cleans Crayon Marks Off Walls…Did those crayon-toting angels of yours get creative and draw some fancy artwork on your wall? Don’t worry. Just grab a tube, a rag or scrub brush, and dab a little on the wall and start scrubbing. The fine abrasive in the toothpaste will take away the crayon marks every time. Rinse the wall with water.
Hang Posters on the wall…Just put a litttle dab in each corner of the poster and a few in between on the edges. Put your poster up and it will stick like magic. When you get ready to remove it will come off easy with no holes.
Fill in holes in the wall…Ugly nail holes showing? Just a little white toothpaste will fill in the hole instantly. Let it dry and you can paint over it.
Air Freshener For Your Car…Squeeze a small amount of toohpaste onto a the center of a paper towel. Roll or fold the towel up. Place under the seat. When the car is left in the warm sunshine it will heat up and the toothpaste will release a nice soft mint smell into your car. Replace as needed.
