Toothpaste not only cleans teeth but also has many uses that you may not know.
1. Hair dye If you dye your hair at home, there will probably be times when you will notice red or brown spots on your forehead and neck. Dyes not only stain the hair, but also make the skin yellow! Using a lot of soap and bleach can remove hair dye stains, but it is harmful to the skin. It is best to apply Vaseline around the hairline before dyeing your hair. Dab a little toothpaste on a cotton pad and apply the mixture to the hair dye-stained skin. Don’t forget to use a little water and a little mild soap, as toothpaste can dry out the skin. 2. Water thermos If you do not use the thermos for a while, it may have an unpleasant smell. However, you can easily clean the thermos with toothpaste. Just pour some water into the thermos and fill it with hot water. Soak for a while, shake well and pour out the water. Rinse the thermos with hot water and the unpleasant smell will be gone. 3. Sunglasses Gentle, non-nutritive toothpaste can clean sunglasses. First, dab some toothpaste on a cotton pad and rub it in.
