Unusual Uses Of Toothpaste

Did you know there is much more to toothpaste than meets the eye? Not only does it whiten and brighten your teeth but has a whole heap of other uses.
1. Soothe a Burn: Just burned yourself while cooking the dinner or is it down to your GHD? Once the burn is not one with an open wound, toothpaste could be your saviour. It should immediately cool the affected area, the effect is only temporary but can be a bit of welcome relief and can prevent the wound from weeping or opening.
2. Relieve irritation from bug bites, sores, and blisters. These skin irritations all tend to weep and, in the case of bug bites, itch a lot. Apply a drop of toothpaste to a bug bite or insect sting to stop the itching and decrease any swelling. Toothpaste will dry them up, thus allowing the wound to heal faster. It’s best when used overnight. I can personally vouch for this one after both me and hubby getting eaten by insects while we were away last year. We weren’t alone everyone we spoke to, had been attacked. Hubby’s got really itchy and swollen, after a few nights using toothpaste along with an antihistamine, they cleared up
3. Spot be gone. I’ve used toothpaste as an reliever for spots since my teenage years, even now in my late 20′s when a nasty pops up, I run straight for the toothpaste. Like with other sores, it helps dry up that big oul spot.
4. Sparkly Fingernails. Our teeth are made of enamel, toothpaste is good for them, so it stands to reason that toothpaste should also be good for our fingernails. For cleaner, shinier, and stronger nails, simply scrub the underneath and tops of fingernails with a toothbrush and toothpaste. Would feel a bit weird doing this but if it works who am I to question?
5. Scrub away yucky smells. Is there anything worse than Garlic, fish, onion, or another smelly food on our hands. Scrubbing hands and fingertips briefly with toothpaste removes all traces of smelly odours.
Have you any unusual uses of toothpaste?
