It is a well-known fact that smartphones that don’t have a protective cover on are prone to scratches. Your toothpaste can provide a fix by cleaning the display to make it look squeaky clean.

Don’t we all accidentally drop small amounts of toothpaste in our sinks while brushing? Maybe not often, but it happens. Here’s a secret: let those globs of toothpaste dry out and use a soft piece of cloth bearing toothpaste to rub across the sink. Not only will this leave a shine in your sink but it will remove all odors that may have been left in the first place.
