Toothpaste can be used to treat your pimples. Zap the zit by applying a tiny dab of white cream toothpaste. Best to apply it in the evening or when you aren’t planning on going out in public.

Toothpaste can also be used (the white kind) to spackle nail holes in the walls of your apartment. When we were kids that was our job as we got ready to leave one set of quarters for another. Once things are dry you can paint right over where the holes were.

Using the baking soda kind of toothpaste apply to a CD or a DVD that’s got a scratch on it. Rub gently, wipe with a clean cloth and the scratch is repaired.

Relieve bug bites. Good for bee stings and for mosquito bites.

Use toothpaste and your husband’s toothbrush to clean your jewelry. Likewise, you can use toothpaste to clean the faucet and handles made of chrome in the bathroom. Only use your husband’s toothbrush for this job if you’re really ticked off at him. You can also use toothpaste to sparkle up the mirror. It’s got a nice side effect of rendering the mirror fog free when you take a shower.

Toothpaste really freshens up a person's breath. It stands to reason that it would do the same for your dog who has really raunchy doggy breath. You want to be careful, though, not to mask what might be a serious problem for Poochie. Could be they've got some bad teeth issues, or general health problems, so if their breath is knock you on your back bad do take them to the vet for a checkup.

Here’s a fun way to get your kids to brush their teeth. Kids learn by watching, so demonstrate how it is that you want them to brush. Now, for the fun part…really get a mouthful of foam going, like you’re a mad dog. And, for the next few weeks, every time they brush their teeth you brush yours with them. That way there won’t be any backsliding or wetting of the toothbrush for show like we used to do when we were kids.
