Tuesday Life Hack: 5 Toothpaste hacks you should know about

There are far more uses for toothpaste than brushing your teeth and keeping them clean. It’s a handy screen cleaner, paper glue solution and hand sanitizer amongst other things. Here are five toothpaste hacks you should know about:

1. Toothpaste can glue together paper

Need to glue two pieces of paper together or seal an envelope? Just use a little toothpaste on the one piece and spread it evenly before pressing it down to glue it onto the other.

2. Light a long-lasting match

Take a few sticks of matches and cover the heads with toothpaste. Put them in a glass of water, take them out and wipe the toothpaste off with a tissue. Light a match using the same sticks and you will notice a stronger flame that lasts longer.

3. Clean your cellphone screen with toothpaste

The touchscreen on your smartphone can get dirty very quickly. Dab a tiny bit of toothpaste on it, spray the screen lightly with water and wipe down thoroughly with a cloth. Your screen will look shiny and new in no time.

4. Get rid of that onion smell on your hands

When chopping onions sometimes it takes a rigorous wash to get rid of the smell and juices that spray onto your hands. Dab a little toothpaste on your fingertips and rub gently, mix in some warm water and wash your hands. The smell and residue will be gone within seconds.

5. Make a zit disappear overnight

Those irritating pimples that pop out when you least expect it can disappear overnight if you dab a little toothpaste on the spot and leave it on overnight. The toothpaste dries the pimple out and won’t leave any marks on your face.
