Brush-a, brush-a, brush-aaaaa!

Along with minty fresh breath, toothpaste can help us accomplish all kinds of handy tasks at home. Watch this fun video where I demonstrate, with the help of my friends at HomeAdvisor, five fresh home hacks using this oh-so common bathroom product.

HACK #1: Mark your spot to hang your frame.

Place a level on top of your frame as you’re marking the spot on the wall with the toothpaste. This will insure a straight-looking picture.

HACK #2: Fill a hole in the wall.

If you don’t have regular spackle, toothpaste will do the trick! Just be sure to allow it to fully dry before painting (about 24 hours).

HACK #3: Clean your sink.

After applying toothpaste directly into your sink, scrub, then clear with hot water. Not only will your sink shine like the sun, it’ll smell minty fresh!

HACK #4: Shine up copper. 

Apply toothpaste to a sponge, then gently rub onto your copper item.

Note: with copper being all the rage these days, this is an especially quick, easy and helpful home hack for hardware, faucets, light fixtures, sconces, etc.

HACK #5: Remove crayon marks from walls.

Apply toothpaste to the scouring pad side of your sponge, then GENTLY rub crayon marks clean. They should disappear in moments!

Now It’s Your Turn!
