*All of these hacks are using regular paste toothpaste, not gel.


Rinse off the toothpaste and the tarnish is gone.

Silver -


Place some regular toothpaste on a microfiber cloth and buff tarnish off silver.

Rinse off the toothpaste and the tarnish is gone. This also works to polish chrome as well.

Copper -


Place some regular toothpaste on a microfiber cloth and buff tarnish off copper.

Clean phone screens, CDs, DVDs, etc. -


Place some regular toothpaste on a microfiber cloth and buff the screen, CD, or DVD.

Use a damp cloth to clean the toothpaste off and your screen is clean. You can rinse CDs and DVDs under the faucet, then use a cotton cloth to lightly dry them.

Remove Odor From Plastic -


Rinse your plastic out.

Rub the inside of the plastic with the toothpaste. This works great to remove strong smells like onions as well.

Rinse out the toothpaste and wash. The odor will be gone.

Remove Crayon -


Place some regular toothpaste on a microfiber cloth and buff the crayon away from doors, tables, and walls. Wipe off the toothpaste with a damp cloth.

Remove Marker From Wood -

Wipe off the toothpaste with a damp cloth.

Remove Soap Scum -
