Prevent foggy goggles – If you apply a thin layer of toothpaste your swimming, woodwork, ski or scuba goggles then wipe clean, it should help prevent them from fogging up.

Whiten a keyboard – If you have an Apple product or any other white keyboard, you can clean it using toothpaste. Disconnect it and apply a small glob of white toothpaste to a cloth and gently buff each key. Stubborn stains should lift and your keyboard will appear brighter.

Remove scuffs from shoes – A little toothpaste goes a long way when it comes to scuffed-up leather shoes.Just squeeze a small bit on the scuffed area and rub with a soft cloth. Wipe clean with a damp one – easy! Did you know a banana skin also work well?

De-gunk your iron – Is your iron no longer smooth and spotless? Gunk on an iron will not only hamper its effectiveness but could also stain clothes. Apply a layer to your iron, scrub off with a clean rag and rinse well.
