15 Uses of the Tooth Paste Apart From Cleaning Your Teeth!



15 Uses of the Tooth Paste Apart From Cleaning Your Teeth!

Until now we only knew tooth paste to clean Clean our teeth by killing germs and providing us fresh breath.  Only recently did I read these Fifteen other uses of Toothpaste and decided to share with you all. Here they are…

Beauty Uses

Toothpaste contains many useful ingredients that can be soothing and healing to the skin. For this reason, you’ll be able to use toothpaste to help you with the following issues:

1) Pimples. Reduce redness and the size of your pimples with a dab of toothpaste. Let it sit overnight, then rinse away in the morning for a noticeable difference.

2) Brittle fingernails. Since our nails are made of the same enamel as teeth, toothpaste can do a lot to help them. Simply give your nails a good scrub with some toothpaste for cleaner, shinier, stronger nails. You’ll also get that dirt out from underneath them in no time!

3) Fly-away hair. A gel toothpaste is largely made with the same ingredients as basic hair gels, so you’ll be able to substitute easily here. Just use a little dab and apply like a hair gel when needed.

First Aid Uses

Beyond beauty care, you’ll also find helpful ways to use toothpaste in that first aid kit. Keep a small tube tucked inside your kit for these emergencies:

4) Bites, sores, and blisters. Apply toothpaste to areas of skin irritation to reduce itching, swelling, and irritation. Toothpaste will dry them up quickly and help them heal faster.

5) Burns. For minor burns with no open sores, a quick toothpaste application can give you instant relief. The cooling properties get to work right away, relieving that painful sting. In the long-term, toothpaste will keep the burn from becoming a painful, oozing blister.

6) Bruises. For large bruises that take forever to fade, use a little toothpaste and a wide-tooth comb. Apply the toothpaste and gently comb the bruise in one direction to break up the blood clotting beneath the skin. Toothpaste helps with circulation and fights off the inflammation.

Fashion Uses

Our clothing and accessories can also benefit from many of the ingredients found in the average tube of toothpaste. Give these a try:

7) Jewelry cleaner. Before you pay for someone else to clean it, rub toothpaste onto your silver jewelry and leave it overnight, the wipe it clean with a soft cloth. Give a light scrubbing to your diamonds to see them sparkle again, just be sure to rinse thoroughly. Avoid using toothpaste on pearls.

8) Show care. Scuffed or dirty shoes can look new again with a little toothpaste. Apply it directly to the dull, dirty, or scuffed parts of the shoe, scrub with a brush, and wipe them clean.

9) Clothing stains. Tough stains will disappear with a little toothpaste and some brisk scrubbing. Squeeze it right on the stain and rub until it disappears, then wash as normal. If using whitening toothpaste, be advised that this can have a bleaching effect on some colors and fabrics.

Household uses

Toothpaste can save you money around the house by helping with some very basic tasks:

10) Computer cleaner. Scrub away fingerprints from your keyboard with a white, baking soda-based toothpaste. Follow up with a damp cloth and your keys are good as new!

11) Iron cleaner. Take away the “crustiness” from the bottom of your clothes iron with a quick toothpaste rinse. Just be sure to remove all the toothpaste before you start ironing again.

12) Baby bottles. To freshen up baby bottles and remove that sour-milk smell, put some toothpaste on your bottle scrubber and give them a quick wash. Always rinse them very well afterwards.

13) Piano keys. Like computer keys, piano keys get grubby with repeated use from the dirt, oil, and grime on our fingertips. Use a damp cloth and some toothpaste to rub down the keys, then wipe them clean with a dry cloth.

14) Crayon stains. Undo your kids’ damage to the walls with a damp cloth and some toothpaste. Rub it in gentle circles and watch the crayon fade away.

15) Odor removal. After cooking with “stinky” foods in the kitchen (fish, garlic, onions, etc.), getting the smell out of the skin is a challenge. Wash your hands thoroughly with water and toothpaste for a quick and easy remedy.

I hope this article will help you as it has helped me…

Have wonderful day, Friends!!!

Six Ways to Reduce Cancer Risk


Six Ways to Reduce Cancer Risk

By Salome Phelamei

Eat a healthy diet: The food you eat plays a vital role in your well-being. A person’s cancer risk can be reduced by eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes. Limit your fat intake, especially those from animal sources. Non-vegetarians should limit their consumption of red meats. Also, intake of salty foods and food processed with salt should be taken in moderation.

Avoid tobacco: Tobacco in any form is injurious to health. Any amount of tobacco and its products that you take increases the risk of developing cancer. While smoking has been linked to cancer of the lungs, bladder, cervix and kidneys; chewing tobacco causes oral and pancreatic cancer.

Limit alcohol: If you drink, set moderate drinking limits. Studies suggest two drinks for men and one drink for women daily should be the limit.

Also, a recent study has claimed that drinking a small glass of wine a day may give you a better chance of avoiding heart failure than those who don’t drink at all.

Exercise: Being physically active for 30 minutes daily can decrease your cancer risk. Daily exercise will also help maintain an ideal weight which might lower your risk of developing certain types of cancer such as- breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer and kidney cancer.

Sun protection: Always use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher whenever you step out in the sun. Prolong exposure to sun can cause skin cancer, which is one of the most common kinds of cancer. While sunscreen alone is not enough to prevent skin cancer, it is also one of the most preventable cancers just by following a few tips like:

Avoiding mid-day sun, avoiding tanning beds, covering exposed areas with clothes, examining your skin every month.

Regular medical care: Getting regular medical care can reduce your risk of developing cancer. Research has shown that screening for cervical, colorectal and breast cancers can help treat them before turning cancerous.

Also, vaccines like human papillomavirus (HPV) and Hepatitis B can help reduce cancer risk.
