Did you know that toothbrushes can do more than just clean your teeth? Even though the American Dental Association recommends that you replace your toothbrush every three months, there are still other ways to make your old toothbrush useful.
To help you keep up with your spring cleaning, here are 10 ways to reuse your old toothbrush:
- Use the toothbrush in your bathroom to clean the build-up around faucets and in between tile grouting.
- Toothbrushes are great for cleaning the corners and crevices around windows, keyboards, monitors and any other small spaces where dirt gathers.
- Use your old toothbrush to clean between your fork tines, around pot handles and other general cutlery washing.
- Toothbrushes can also be useful for scrubbing old shoes. Use with soap and water to make your footwear look like new.
- Use an old toothbrush and cheap toothpaste to polish your jewelry. Toothpaste is a great abrasive agent to clean and shine gold and silver.
- You can use a toothbrush to spot clean your laundry, upholstery or carpet.
- Your old toothbrush is great for cleaning underneath your fingernails.
- Old toothbrushes are also a good makeup tool. Use them to remedy mascara mishaps, brush unruly eyebrows or even apply hair dye.

- Got messy kids? You can use shaving cream and an old toothbrush to remove crayon marks from walls.
