Toothpaste: Not Just For Brushing Your Pearly Whites Anymore

Apparently, toothpaste isn”t just for brushing your teeth.

It turns out that toothpaste, that wonderful product that makes your teeth clean and your breath fresh, actually has a lot of uses outside of your mouth. Its chemical components and fresh scent can help us out with a bunch of different things. It”s weird to think of toothpaste being used for anything besides cleaning teeth, but some of these other uses are pretty cool.
