Using toothpaste to clean around your house

There are many items that you can use as alternatives to cleaners to make your house spotless. But, this one also smells minty fresh.

Ben's Outlet Blog lists more than a dozen unusual uses for toothpaste.

Here are a few that topped the list:

Clean "Gunk" Off Your Iron
Non-gel toothpastes contain a mild abrasive, which is just what you need to scrub the "gunk" off the plate of your iron. Apply it to your iron while its cool and scrub with a rag, then rinse well.

Baby Bottle Deodorizer
Are your baby's bottles starting to smell like sour milk? Toothpaste works well to remove this odor! Just put a little bit on the bottle brush and start scrubbing. Be sure to rinse the bottle out well.

Mirror Defogger
Ouch! No wonder you cut yourself shaving…a fogged-up bathroom mirror certainly prevents you from seeing your face clearly. Next time (before you shave and cut yourself) spread a little non-gel toothpaste onto the mirror and wipe it off before stepping into the shower. When you're done with your shower and ready to shave, the mirror won't be fogged up!

Shines Chrome
You can find many commercial cleaners containing a very fine abrasive that are designed to make your chrome shine, but if you don't happen to have one of these cleaners handy, try a little non-gel toothpaste instead (which also contains a mild abrasive) It will work just as good. Smear it on and polish the chrome piece with a soft, dry cloth.

Cleans Your Bathroom Sink, Destroys Odors From Drain
Non-gel toothpastes work just as good as any other bathroom cleaner when it comes to cleaning out your sink. How handy can you get, it's sitting right there at your fingertips so why not use it? OR…if your family is like mine, they drop gobs of it in the sink while brushing their teeth so just take a sponge or cloth and make good use of their waste! Rinse it out and see it shine! An additional bonus even! This will also destroy any odors coming from down inside the drain.
