Buying toothpaste is a given- it’s one of life’s necessities, unless you want to knock people out with your pungent breath.

So, I’m guessing you’ll have some knocking about in your bathroom. It, of course, does what it says on the tin and gives you fresh breath, but did you know it actually has an extensive list of uses? For something that can be bought so cheaply, it’s surprising how handy it can prove to be around the home.

Here’s a list of 14 uses you probably didn’t know toothpaste had- bare in mind these tips are only applicable with white paste and not gel- based toothpastes!

1. Shine Your Silver Jewels With It!

Firstly, it can actually be used to restore your jewels! Silver in particular works well, but be sure to avoid sterling or antique pieces- leave these to the professionals!

2. Make Your Own Stress Ball With It And A Balloon!

This one’s a bit of a weird one, but it’s genius! Fill an empty balloon (or even condom) with the paste and tie securely. Watch it act as an instant stress reliever, squeezing to your heart’s content, thanks to the latex material!
