Do you have any household uses for toothpaste?

I have used toothpaste for a few things other than just brushing my teeth. I have used the plain white paste on my face when it face breaks out. I read once when I was younger that some models use it, if they got a pimple the day before a photo shoot, they would put it on before bed and by morning it was gone. I have had a few clear up that fast but not always. I have even put it on as a face wash before getting in the shower, it stings some, but my face sure is cleaner. I have also used it as a quick fix to plug up a nail hole on a white wall. I usually buy my regular toothpaste and then the cheapest tube I can find to use for these extra uses, the dollar stores are good for that, just make sure to just use the white paste. Do you have any household uses for toothpaste that you could share?

I have used it for cleaning jewelry, diamonds sparkle and you can really get into those hard to reach places in rings with baggetts. I also have used it to repair small holes in walls. When it dries, it is as hard as plaster and can be painted over or papered. A very light paste makes stainless steel shine. in the bathroom, getting around the sink knobs can be hard but a toothbrush with toothpaste works great, rinses off easy too.

I used paste to clean the household items too. Good to remove dirt from flasks, refrigerators, pots etc. from any surface that is not wood or metal. I used it to clean my computer and keyboard too. It mades the computer look real white like new.

I didn't know you could use it for pimples thanks for sharing. Although I don't have pimples. But when I have soon I'll try puting toothpasta on it and see if it really works. I have read in the responses that you could use toothpaste as your jewelry cleaner! I'll really try that! thanks you guys!
