There's more to your toothpaste than just making your teeth sparkle. Read on to know more:

Whiten nails: Using too much nail polish can leave your nails stained. Brush them with toothpaste to restore their whiteness.

Soothes insect bites: Stung by a nasty insect? Apply toothpaste on the insect bite and leave it on overnight. It prevents swelling. Don't apply it if you have an open wound.

Clean irons: To clean the iron, rub some toothpaste on the bottom of the iron when it is cold and wipe it off with a damp cloth.

Cleaning soles: Rub the soles with toothpaste for squeaky clean sneakers.

For smelly hands: Hands smell terrible after working with onions and chicken. Rub hands thoroughly with toothpaste to get rid of the stench.
