You probably wouldn’t expect toothpaste to be good for much other than cleaning your teeth.

I know I didn’t. If only I knew of toothpaste other uses sooner.

Seriously, toothpaste is incredible. And it’s for so much more than cleaning your teeth!

The hacks you learn on the Internet are pretty incredible if you ask me!

Wherever we look on the internet, it seems like there are hacks everywhere!

Not that I’m complaining, hacks manage to make life seem a lot easier!

They also help us in most situations, showing us the easy way to do something.

We really are learning something new every day! It’s pretty amazing!

Take a look at these incredible toothpaste hacks that you’ll love trying at home!

1. Faded Silver

Faded silver items can be restored to their former glory when you rub a small amount of toothpaste onto your silver. 

2. Car Headlights

Are your headlights looking a little worse for wear?

Then why not gently rub some toothpaste onto your car’s headlights.

The toothpaste we use actually contains an abrasive material which works wonders for cleaning.

3. Piano Keys

The keys on a piano can become dirty very fast. That’s because of the constant contact with human fingers. 

To clean them up in a matter of minutes all you have to do is put a small amount of toothpaste on a wet cloth and carefully clean the keys.

You’ll be surprised at how fast it works!

4. White Soles

If you have footwear with white soles, like Converse shoes, then they can easily be cleaned with a bit of toothpaste and a cloth!

5. Swimming Goggles

If you cover the insides of swimming goggles in a very thin layer of toothpaste, then wash it off, they won’t get steamed up while you’re swimming anymore.

Honestly, I wouldn’t have thought it was possible!

6. Stained Wood

Got wine or coffee marks on your coffee table?

They can be a real pain to remove with regular table cleaner, but if you use toothpaste, it works wonders!

Simply wipe the table with a little toothpaste. Now there’s no need for harmful chemicals!

7. Stains

Toothpaste is also great for getting rid clothing stains, from lipstick to spaghetti sauce. If it’s a stain then toothpaste can get rid of it!

Just cover the offending stain with a small amount of toothpaste, rub it in slightly, and leave for a couple of minutes before washing it off.

But remember that for colored clothing you shouldn’t use whitening toothpaste.

8. Taps

Make your taps sparkle with a little toothpaste.

Simply rub a cloth covered with some toothpaste over the taps. It works great on any chrome-plated surface!

9. Iron Standard

Toothpaste is also great for cleaning the bottom of an iron. Just rub some toothpaste onto the bottom with a cloth! It works wonders.

10. Screen Saver

Your phone can get pretty scratched up, especially if you don’t have a protective film on there!

To avoid this, simply apply a little toothpaste on a cloth, then carefully rub it on any scratches. 

Then carefully remove any remaining toothpaste, and wipe the screen dry. It’s that simple!

11. Fingers 

Toothpaste can even help clean your fingernails. All you have to do is cover them in a small amount of toothpaste, leave them for a couple of minutes, and wash off with water!

Easy peasy!

12. Bad Smells

There are certain smells, like garlic, onion, and fish, that can be very difficult to remove from your hands. But if you wash your hands with a small amount of toothpaste, the smell will disappear in a matter of minutes!

13. Stress Relief 

Feeling a little tense? Then this may be the perfect hack for you!

All you have to do is fill a condom with toothpaste and tie it by its end firmly.  

Once you’re done you’ll have your very own stress reliever ball that will serve you for a long time, which is all thanks to the endurance of latex of the condoms.

Squeeze all you like and let that stress evaporate in a matter of minutes!
