6. Shine White Tennis Shoes

Tennis Shoes

Revive your dingy-looking tennis shoes by giving them a good scrubbing with a whitening toothpaste. Again, stick to white toothpaste, unless you would like to have red, blue, or green stains on your tennies. Toothpaste and a toothbrush can help scrub away dirt, grime, and dinginess from the white rubber portions of any of your sneakers.

5. Make Temporary Marks for Hanging Pictures

Hanging Pictures

Toothpaste isn’t only great for cleaning. This handy paste has other household uses as well. When hanging pictures, it can be challenging to place the nail in the wall where it will properly line up with the hook on the back of your frame. Place a small dab of toothpaste on your picture hook and then hold the frame against the wall. A dab of toothpaste will remain on the wall right where you should place your nail.

4. Fill in Nail Holes

Nail Holes

When you are moving out of your house or apartment, you may notice you are leaving behind unsightly nail holes where your pictures had been hanging. Fill in those holes with a small dab of white toothpaste. Use a flat edge, such as a putty knife or piece of cardboard to scrape away excess toothpaste. Presto! Your walls may look as good as new!
