1.Remove stains. Toothpaste can make tough stains on both clothing and carpets disappear. For clothes, apply toothpaste directly to the stain & rub briskly until the spot is gone, then wash as usual. (Note that using a whitening toothpaste on colors can sometimes bleach the fabric.) For carpet stains, apply toothpaste to the stain and scrub it with an abrasive brush, then rinse immediately. 2. Remove scratches on DVDs & CDs. This remedy has been used with mixed success rates, (con't) 432
but it seems to work fairly well on shallow scratches & smudges. Apply a thin coating of toothpaste to the disc & rub gently, then rinse clean.
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) 432
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.
I use white vinager to clean just about everything. I keep a spray bottle with 1/2 vinager and 1/2 water. I use it to wash windows, floors, bathrooms, laundry, and carpet stains. it is a great sanitizer and deodorizer. the vinager smell will go away. Baking soda and vinager help clean drains.
