Never Throw Away an Old Toothbrush Again-- They Are Valuable Tools for Many Things

Dentists recommend that we change our toothbrushes out for new ones every three or four months. that means that a family can easily collect a lot of old toothbrushes in a year. That's great, because there is so much you can do with them! Try some of these ideas around the house.

Scrub Your Window Blinds

Window blinds gather stuck-on dust and debris really quickly, but they can be a pain to clean. When you put pressure on them, they bend out of shape and you risk breaking them. Two tooth brushes and some duct tape will solve your problem. Simply Tape the two toothbrushes together with the bristles facing each other and barely touching. Now, just put the blind between the two brushes and run the tool along the length of the slat. You can scrub them all clean in few minutes without even taking them down.

Toilet Rim cleaner

Everyone knows that toothbrushes are great for the kitchen and bathroom. They're small enough to get in all the nooks and crannies, but one place that even toothbrushes have trouble with is the underside of the toilet rim. You can adjust your toothbrush so it will get under the rim more easily. Heat the back of the part that holds the bristles until it's soft enough to bend back on a 90-degree angle. Then let the plastic harden again. Now you can scrub away under that rim, the toothbrush will perfectly adhere to it.

Brush Product Onto your Hair

Next time you want to give yourself a good cholesterol treatment at the roots, or to put a few streaks of color in your hair, don't go out and buy specialty brushes at the cosmetic stores. Just use old tooth brushes for the job.

Clean Your Other Brushes

Toothbrushes are a great tool for cleaning other brushes. Whether you need to clean a hair brush really well or that kitchen floor scrub brush, a little toothbrush can do the job and get rid of the debris.
