Toothpaste isn't only good when it comes to keeping your teeth, but it is also good with a lot of other things that we aren't really aware of. Toothpaste can help keep your hair in place. Gel toothpastes contain the same water-soluble polymers that many hair gels are made of. It also helps scrub away stinky smells, such as garlic and onion. Toothpaste can make tough stains on clothing and carpets disappear.

Crawford and OBrien's curator insight, June 3, 2014 6:49 AM

Good information for the different uses of Toothpaste.

I can still remember when I was young. I hate to go to the dentist, it really makes me nervous. My mother always insists, so even if it’s hard on my part, moms always win. Thinking it now, I’m so thankful that she is so persistent on visiting dentist before. I still got a perfect smile.
