How frozen toothpaste helps with cleaning: a Japanese secret
Few people know that toothpaste is a universal cleaning tool. The Japanese often use it to get rid of stains and unpleasant odors.
Frozen toothpaste is used to clean carpets, tile joints, and even kitchen utensils. The Sante Plus publication reported the details.
How to freeze toothpaste
The Japanese, known for their genius, have no shortage of ideas for simplifying everyday life and rationalizing cleaning.
They recommend one interesting life hack. Take a silicone ice cube tray and fill it with white toothpaste. Leave the container in the freezer overnight. The next day, unmold the frozen toothpaste cubes.
Life hacks for cleaning
Cleaning experts say that such cubes will quickly and efficiently remove stains on the carpet - just rub the stains with them and rinse the carpet with water.
If the cutting board in your kitchen has an unpleasant odor (for example, from fish), all you need to do is rub it with frozen paste cubes. The odor will disappear instantly.
This method can also be used to whiten tile joints. It is recommended to apply the paste along the lines and leave it for several hours, ideally overnight. Then you should use an old toothbrush to clean the grout. Rinse them with clean water and then dry them with a soft microfiber cloth.
Toothpaste can also be used to clean blackened silverware by brushing the surface of the items. After that, rinse the cutlery thoroughly with cold water and wipe it with chamois.
Frozen paste is even used in cosmetology. It is believed to reduce the redness of acne. Before going to bed, it is advised to apply a thin layer of paste on the pimple. In the morning, the redness and swelling should go away.
