12 surprising alternative uses for toothpaste

12 Surprising Alternative Uses for Toothpaste

I sell a lot of stuff on Ebay. Jewelry, silverware, serving sets, ceramic figurines, porcelain figurines, brass figurines, sneakers. I use white toothpaste (not gel) and a damp toothbrush. For large items I use a damp cloth. Also works on copper, brass, gold, silver, porcelain, ceramics, sneakers, plastics, etc. For my sales I needed one product for cleaning everything. I also used toothpaste to clean my daughters headlights. Works on removing water rings from furniture. These are only a handful of uses for toothpaste I chose that seem relevant here.

My Spring/ Summer Wreath

Got my bird houses made for my wreath. As in my Fall and Halloween wreaths, I need a large wreath for the space. Has to be three feet round. So I bought a Hoola Hoop, plastic table cloth, and a few bunches of fake flowers from Dollar Tree.

Small Bird Houses For My Spring/Summer Wreath

Wanted to make some bird houses for my spring/summer wreath. Went through my scrap pile and found a sheet of lauan plywood from another project.

Metal Solar Light Flowers

I saw so many solar light flowers being sold and I couldn't believe the prices. $10 and up. I knew I could do better. So I just decided to give a try and make my own. These are based on a set of three lights Bird and Blooms were giving away in one of their contests. I didn't win so I made my own.

Cheap (free) MDF Table to Console Table

I needed a console table off my front door. I planned on making my own, but couldn't decide on a design I wanted. Found a few designs I liked online, but wasn't too happy with them. Trash day is on Mondays so I go for a drive looking for things I can find. AMAZING WHAT PEOPLE THROW OUT! I happen to find this cheap MDF desk thrown out with some sofas and side chairs. One of those knock down ready to assemble kind. Looked like something I can work with.

Personal Mailbox for the Students

A few years ago, my daughter and granddaughter lived with me after my daughter divorced. One Friday morning in October I noticed my granddaughter had a plastic grocery bag along with her backpack. I asked her whats in the bag. She said the jewelry box you made for me. I asked her why was she taking it to school? She said for show and tell. I gasped. I looked at my daughter and she shrugged her shoulders with a smile. I thought to myself, it wasn't that great of a box and she needed something to keep her tween jewelry in. The following Monday, my daughter said the Vice Principal needed to talk to her and if I could come along. When we got to the school the Vice Principal greeted us and took us into her office. She started to praise my granddaughter for her jewelry box presentation and how the class enjoyed it. But she said it was what was inside the box that really impressed her. My granddaughter had photos of some of my projects that she passed around the class. The Vice Principal proceeded to ask if I would consider building a mailbox for the school the students could use to "mail" Christmas cards to each other. They used a cardboard box covered with Christmas wrapping paper. I kind of was caught off guard and told her sure.

My Poor Frogs

They were out in the weather for years. Never touched water and sun bleached. They were begging to be brought back to life.
