Your Old Toothbrush Can Make More Than Your Smile Look Good

Your toothbrush is your teeth’s best friend—fighting plaque and helping your smile shine. But did you know your brush comes in handy for beautifying other areas, too?

Your Old Toothbrush Can Make More Than Your Smile Look Good

Your old toothbrush can be used to beautify, decorate and clean!

Here are our 3 favorites:

1. Glamorize Your Glow

Who knew your old toothbrush could be your best-kept beauty secret? For a flawless-face free of flyaways, spray bristles with hairspray and gently wipe at your hairline. You can also use the same method to groom unruly eyebrows. Your toothbrush is a great exfoliator, too! Apply your favorite moisturizing balm to your lips and then gently scrub off dead skin.

2. Decorate Your Digs

Toothbrushes make unique interpretive art instruments. Bust out a white canvas, gather old toothbrushes and pick your favorite acrylic paint colors. Drip, flick and drizzle until you get a mantle-worthy masterpiece.

3. Clean Crevices

The military used to make soldiers clean bathroom floors with old toothbrushes. While we respect the soldiers’ earth-friendly punishment, our toothbrush cleaning routine is all about reaching those nooks and crannies. The possibilities are endless: appliances, windowsills, keyboards, grout, shoe soles and even your hairdryer.
