Stop throwing your old toothbrushes away. Here are 10 nifty ways to use them around the house


Toothbrushes can go far beyond their duty of improving your hygiene. There are lots of places in your home where you can put your toothbrush to use other than in your mouth.

Here are some radically different uses for your toothbrush.

1- Fix Your Can Opener

Has your handheld can opener stopped moving? Chances are the teeth in the gears are stuck because of all the gunk that’s caught up in it. Use your toothbrush to clean out those hard to reach spots in between the gears.

2- Hold Your Bun In Place

Your toothbrush can serve as a funky hair accessory. Instead of using chopsticks, you can pull your hair into a bun and push a toothbrush through it to keep your bun in place.

3- Clean Your Keurig

The coffee pod area of your Keurig machine is tiny and hard to get into to clean. But not with a toothbrush. You can scrub up right in there and clean it out so that it will be free of bacteria and mold and will make your coffee taste better.

4- Toilet Rim Scrub

Light a lighter on your toothbrush about an inch an a half below the bristles. Once it becomes soft, bend it at a 90-degree angle. Use it to scrub underneath the toilet bowl rim.

5- Bike Chain Scrubber

Take two toothbrushes and place them together with their bristles touching and tape them together by their handles. Place your bike chain in between the two brushes and spin the pedals so that the chains runs through the brushes.
