I Never Imagined That Toothpaste Can Do So Many Things

Everyone uses toothpaste. This is usually the first thing we do in the morning when we get up: mechanically crush the tube on our toothbrush and eliminate bad breath in the morning. And yet toothpaste has many unknown uses.

The industrial toothpaste that we use every day is composed of between 15 to 50% of highly abrasive polishing agents for the teeth. So, why not try one of our natural recipes instead to make your own toothpaste? You can reuse your usual toothpaste and enjoy its polishing cleanser and abrasive effect to achieve these 18 surprising things:
