Toothpaste is a staple in every home. Hopefully, at least! We’re all familiar with the main use; cleaning our teeth and keeping our mouths healthy. That minty flavor helps us feel refreshed and ready for whatever the day brings. Personally, it’s hard for me to fall asleep at night unless I know I brushed my teeth! 

Apart from its well-known use, did you know that toothpaste can do more? Due to its makeup of different ingredients, it can help us in a myriad of other ways. 

Life hacks may seem strange at first, but that’s what makes them so great! They’re unique ways to make life easier, and TheSoul Publishing has no shortage of fun new ways to make your life a little simpler. Their newest life hacks, as seen on their popular YouTube channel 5-Minute Crafts, are all about toothpaste!

Here are three products that you never knew toothpaste could improve! 


Another product I’m sure we all have is a cutting board. This one in particular is also an electronic kitchen scale! The two-in-one design will help you save space in your kitchen. On top of that, it’s easy to wash because of the way the chopping board and tray separate. You can conveniently clean every part of this handy device. 

After using cutting boards to chop up fish or other such smelly foods, an odor can linger on the board. Sometimes, soap just doesn’t quite cut it. Even though the board looks clean, you still get that odor. That’s where toothpaste comes in! 

You first need to freeze a bit of toothpaste, preferably in an ice tray. When it’s frozen, you can use the hardened toothpaste cubes to scrub the cutting board. After that, you wash the board normally. This process eliminates lingering odors and will help you keep your cutting boards fresh and clean. 


This nail polish is a must-have. The NutriGlow Show Stopper Set comes in a wide array of bright colors. With this set, you’ll be able to create any nail look you can think of. It even comes with a gift bag you can use to store your polish. The polish goes on smooth and shiny and it dries in just two to three minutes. With this affordable set, you can create countless beautiful nail looks. 

If you change your mind while applying one such look, or make a mistake, have no fear! Where nail polish and paper towels can dry out your skin while removing polish, toothpaste can actually help keep your nails and skin healthy. 

A dab of toothpaste on wet nail polish can completely clean off your nails. Just squeeze a bit of toothpaste on the polish you want to remove and wash it away with water or a washcloth. You’ll be astounded by the results.  


In a world full of blue light from screens, our eyes can really suffer. Many of us use computers or other devices for work or school. Looking at screens for long periods of time can end up giving us annoying headaches. These blue light block reading glasses will both protect your eyes from blue light and help you read smaller text on screens or physical pages. 

 Whether you use blue-light-blocking glasses, sunglasses, or just plain prescription glasses, you know that the lenses can get annoyingly dirty. It’s often hard to find the right type of cloth to clean them because so many can just smudge the glasses more. And don’t get me started on cleaning fluid! It’s so easy to misplace. 

Toothpaste, on the other hand, is always in the same place by your sink. Did you know that it can actually be used to clean your glasses? By covering the lenses in toothpaste and then wiping it away, you’ll get clean glasses in moments. With unsmudged vision, you’ll be ready for anything life throws your way! 

Who knew that toothpaste had so many uses? The household substance can improve your life in a variety of ways. If you’re running low, be sure to stock up on some in our store!
