Toothpaste is one general stuff which is available in each and every house. But do you know that it’s not just meant for your teeth but there’s more to it. Here are a few useful life hacks which are possible with a toothpaste….
Make your iron spotless– Its irritating when your white clothes get stained while ironing due to the gunk in the iron. Well, a simple trick to make your iron spotlessly clean is to use a gel based toothpaste and scrub off the dirt gently. Afterwards wipe off nicely with a damp tissue or a soft cloth.
Get rid of strong smells– If you want to get rid of smelly hands which is very natural when you cut onions, meat, fish, garlic etc, then try using toothpaste instead of soap to clean the hands.

Clean mirrors– If you always wonder about how to keep your mirrors spotlessly clean then use toothpaste to clean them up and you will be surprised with the results.
