Uses for toothpaste: What bright ideas!

Times are hard and money is tight so I thought that today I would tell you about a household product that you probably have in your home now that you can use in other ways.  Toothpaste!

    1. Holes in your walls:If you have white walls with holes in them, use white toothpaste to fill in the holes.
    2. Bug bites:  Mint flavored toothpaste is great to use on itchy bug bites.  Just dab a bit on and experience some relief.
    3. Dingy headlights:  If your headlights are dingy, rub white toothpaste over the lens and buff off.  
    4. Blisters:  If you have a blister, apply a bit of white toothpaste overnight and the blister should dry up.
    5. Crayon marks on your walls:  Dampen a cloth, apply some white toothpaste and scrub the area.  
    6. Scuff marks on your sneakers:  Use an old toothbrush and some toothpaste and you can brush off the scuff marks with relative ease.
    7. Smelly hands:  If your hands smell from onions or fish or some other stinky thing, just scrub your hands with toothpaste and it will remove the smells.  I would recommend using lotion afterwards though to rehydrate and soften your hands.
    8. Scratched DVDs or CDs:  Put a thin layer of white toothpaste on your scratched disks.  Gently buff them out with a damp cotton cloth and they should work better.  This will work with most minor scratches but not for deep scratches.
    9. Dirty or dull fingernails:  Just scrub them as you would your teeth and they will appear brighter and shinier.
    10. Pimples:  If you see a pimple coming up, rub some white toothpaste over it before you go to bed and it will help.
