Step 1: Remove Crayon Marks on the Walls
Use shaving cream and a toothbrush to remove crayon marks on the wall. My landlord will never know I used my door as a canvas!
Step 2: Brush Your Eyebrows
Beauty and grooming tools can be expensive. I use this $1 toothbrush as an eyebrow brush.
Step 3: Clean Your Finger Nails
Brush that dirt out from under your fingernails. Just put a little soap and water on the brush and you're good to go. It feels nice on your nails too!
Step 4: Clean Your Shoe Soles
When dirt and mud gets stuck in the soles of your shoes, loosen it up with your toothbrush.
Step 5: Remove Marks on Floors
Use non-gel whitening toothpaste to remove stains from the floors and counter tops.
Step 6: Clean Grout Grime on Tiled Floors
Combine 1 part Borax, 2 parts Baking Soda, and 2 parts water to clear out that funky grime between tiles. Use this in the kitchen and bathroom.
Step 7: Apply Hair Dye
Apply hair dye yourself using a toothbrush. For quick touch ups to grey hair or roots, apply mascara to a toothbrush - it will blend the color in your hair better than the mascara wand.
Step 8: Clean Appliances
Toasters. Microwaves. Coffee Machines. Use a toothbrush to clean off crumbs and stains that fall in those hard to reach spaces.
Step 9: Clean Hairbrush
Lift the hair out of your hair brush by pulling it up with your toothbrush.
Step 10: Toothbrush Bracelet
Finally, when your toothbrush is at the end of the road, make a purdy toothbrush bracelet.
