1. Clean up your fingernails. Our teeth are made of enamel, and toothpaste is good for them, so it stands to reason that toothpaste would also be good for our fingernails. For cleaner, shinier, & stronger nails, simply scrub the underneath & tops of fingernails with a toothbrush & toothpaste. 2.Spruce up dirty shoes. This tactic works great on running shoes or scuffed-up leather shoes. As with carpet stains, apply toothpaste directly to the dirty or scuffed area, (con't)
then scrub with a brush & wipe clean. 3.Remove crayon stains on painted walls. Rub a damp cloth with toothpaste gently on the marked-up wall & watch the Crayola marks disappear.
