Then clean toothbrush with old fine tooth comb
I used an extra soft child's toothbrush to clean a very young kitten's face. He was abandoned in front of our church so I took him home and gave him a bath and used the toothbrush to get the dirt from around his eyes and nose as well as brushing his fur.
NO! dont ever giv a cat a bath.they clean themselves up own their own.
though iv never tried it, mayb MAYB warm water baths only, no soap.

plus just brush ur fingers on on d face, the mud/dirt loosens n falls off...wash ur hands after tht.

had 7 cats (5kittens/2 older) at home at one point of time, best part is wen they all decide to chase ur feet wen u walk by :)
For your information, this was under the instruction of our vet. Out kitten had a skin condition that required a daily bath to treat. Also, my vet even suggests using liquid dish soap to treat flees on kittens. It's a myth that you shouldn't bathe cats. Ask your vet. They need them once in a while.
Did the liquid soap work. ??? first time ever in my 72 years that I have a cat, so appreciate any tips I can find. Thank you
Ill ask. But im sure they are gonna hate it, the kittens, if he agrees! :D

for the shoe cleaning bit an old tooth brush is ideal for getting polish into the the seams of boots and shoes and where the upper joins the lower.

A used tooth brush is also useful for cleaning old coins.

Tradition.. from when plastic was first used for toothbrushes.
Discarded toothbrushed.. boil in a saucepan and bend when softened, remove bristles and link several together for a baby teething ring..
They love the bright colours, and they are very effective in soothing the mouth.
Brings back a lot of memories.. never ever throw out old toothbrushes. I currently have about ten as back-up, and I never replace my toothbrush often enough.

Putting that old brush to work. I use old tooth brushes on dusty computer fans, and electronics, but not on the board or anything, that's when canned air comes in.

Cleaning flux of of soldered circuit boards.
Loosening dust in computers before the compressed air removes/redistributes it.

I keep several on my workbench and toolbox for all kinds of things.
And I only use the one on the bathroom holder for my teeth, that way I know it hasn't been used for anything else yet.
(as long as the people I live with are trustworthy).

If its an old brush why do you care whats in it?
and you could take out hair from a hair brush with a comb too and push the hair out of the comb with the old tooth brush.

Step 11: Clean the grout around your sink ;-)
that is rust my friend.
LOL she can't clean rust off of sinks.
An old toothbrush works very well for that and other bathroom / kitchen nook-and-cranny cleaning.

Nothing like an old toothbrush to clean those hard-to-reach places on a handgun or favorite rifle. Designed just right for that.

Bending the shank backwards a little makes it easier to clean boot treads, the inside bottom corner of a glass and dog's teeth.
