There aren’t many cleaners that can make jewelry shine like toothpaste. Simply scrub them with toothpaste using a soft bristle toothbrush, rinse with water before the toothpaste hardens and shine with a cloth. Be careful not to use this technique on pearls as the abrasives in toothpaste can scratch the surface.

2.Nail-Hole Filler

Joint compound or spackling are more ideal solutions, but toothpaste works best for smaller holes made by small nails or pins. Simply apply it to the hole and wipe away the excess.

3.Shower-Door Revitalizer

Glass shower doors accumulate scum very quickly. To give them their original clarity, simply wipe it down with a squeeze of toothpaste on a damp cloth or sponge. For more stubborn stains, let the toothpaste sit for a while and then rinse it off.

4.Revive Headlamps

The cover on headlights gets dirty and scratched over time, reducing the brightness of the lights. Clean the cover with soap and water first, then buff it with toothpaste and a polishing pad or cloth.

5.Hand Freshner

Soap doesn’t work that well when you have to remove the heavy smell of fish, onions, or other stinky foods from your skin. Toothpaste works far better for removing odors and can be used just like soap. Apply a dab to your hands and rub it like you would soap. Apply lotion or moisturizer afterwards.

6.Goggle Defogger

Goggles that have an antifog coating can be a bit pricey, but you can make regular goggles fog-proof using toothpaste. Rub a small amount of toothpaste on the inside of the goggles in gentle circular motions to prevent scratching the lenses. This trick works for swimming, bike and skiing goggles as well.

7.Chrome Cleaner

When you notice the water spots all over your chrome faucets, use the toothpaste and rub it gently on the chrome with a soft cloth, then rinse it off. This will work for any chrome, from plumbing fixtures to car wheels. Use this trick occasionally since the abrasives in the toothpaste can gradually wear away the finish.

8.Mobile Screen Fixer

Devices without a protective screen can become scratched over time. Toothpaste can clean screens on mobile devices such as cell phones and handheld gaming consoles. Lightly rub the screen with toothpaste on a cotton cloth. Then wipe the screen clean with a second cloth.

9.Sink Shiner

We have all dropped globs of toothpaste into our sinks at some point. But instead of letting it dry into a ball, use a soft cloth and rub the toothpaste around your sink to keep it shining. Once you rinse it, any odors from the drain will also be removed.
