Faz um tempo que li um artigo bem legal 25 uses for your old toothbrush...

Whether you’ve switched to an eco-friendly recycled toothbrush or just got a new one for the health of your teeth you probably have a few old toothbrushes or more lying around. Right? Don’t throw them away. Instead throw them in the dishwasher. Once the toothbrushes are clean, dry them and then use your toothbrushes in the various ways below:

1. Spot clean laundry with an eco-friendly cleaner and then scrub with an old toothbrush.
2. Scrub shower corners, tile and the bottom of your shower sliding door if you have one.
3. In the kitchen uses a toothbrush for hard to reach places where regular tile wipes and scrubs can’t get too. It is especially helpful under and around the faucet and sink for removing slime.
4. Make your jewelry shine again with a toothbrush and some soap and water. Gently scrub out all the gunk that’s been building up between the crevasse and the stones.
5. Have a keyboard? Use the toothbrush to clean between the keys.
6. Clean dog poop off your shoe. We all step in it from time to time. Don’t be embarrassed or stuck trying to find a leaf to clean it off. Instead grab the toothbrush you left in your patio for this purpose and scrub the poop off your shoe.
7. If you can a lot of food an old toothbrush will help you clean between the threads of the jar and its top.
8. Make a toothbrush bracelet. For instructions go here.
9. Clean out your lemon or garlic press with a toothbrush.
10. Clean your finger nails after gardening.
11. Clean your kids fingernails and toe nails before they come inside from playing in the mud (despite your warning not to play in the mud).
12. Use an old toothbrush to clean the small spaces in your car that can’t be cleaned well with a regular wipe, like the buttons, snobs etc.
13. If you’re an artists use your old toothbrush to paint or for other art projects you may have.
14. Clean vents, blinds and window screens with an old toothbrush.
15. Spot clean carpet or your furniture upholstery with some soap, water and a toothbrush.
16. Brush your combs clean with an old toothbrush.
17. Use a toothbrush to really scrub around the blades of your manual or electric can opener. A dirty can opener is very unsanitary.
18. Gently clean artificial flowers and plants or even your live plants like ivy’s. It is better, healthier and more eco-friendly to have real plants anyways.
19. Cheese graters can be difficult to clean. To save your finger from skin abrasions grab a toothbrush and brush off all the sticky of hard cheese. Your fingers will thank you for it.
20. Making breakfast can get messy if you use things like waffle irons. To clean the hard to reach places grab a toothbrush and scrub off all the gunk.
21 Use old toothbrushes to stake up small, but heavy plants.
22. Clean out electric razors with an old toothbrush.
23. For those of you with bushy and crazy eyebrows use a toothbrush to comb your eyebrows straight. Please!
24 Clean and oil tools and car parts
25. If you have a recycled toothbrush from places like Preserve you can use their postage paid label and return it to them to be recycled again.

Word of advice: Make sure to label each toothbrush for its use so as not to mix the toothbrushes up. We wouldn’t want the poop-cleaning toothbrush mixed up with the garlic press-cleaning one, would we? I wouldn’t.

É uma dica de reciclagem também...
