Perfectly Practical #42 - Toothpaste

What's so perfectly practical about toothpaste besides cleaning your teeth, you ask?  Well, I'll tell you:

Toothpaste helps to dry up a blemish on your face.  Just dab it on the zit and leave it a little while before washing away the paste.

If you have white walls, and need to cover up nail holes, put a little toothpaste in the hole.  Obviously not the blue stripy paste with sparkles.  ;)

To shine silver, you can rub plain white toothpaste on your sterling and rub off with a soft cloth.  Wash and dry the piece afterwards.

Along those same lines, you can shine your bathroom taps with toothpaste.

Toothpaste takes the itch and sting out of bug bites/stings.

If you rub toothpaste on your mirror and wipe off, it will prevent your mirror from fogging up in the bathroom.

It will do the same for scuba masks.

Toothpaste can be a stain remover for clothing or carpets.

It can also be a scuff mark remover for tennis shoes or walls.

(As in all cleaning methods, I would suggest that you try it in an out of the way spot first.)
