Clean Your Iron With Toothpaste

If you’re using tap water in your iron, eventually you’ll end up facing the dreaded mineral build up on the soleplate. Luckily, all it takes is a little bit of toothpaste to make it look brand spanking new again.

Simply rub a small amount of toothpaste (the white stuff, not the gel) on to the soleplate of a cool, unplugged iron. Then wipe off the toothpaste with a clean slightly damp cloth. Repeat as necessary, and allow the soleplate to dry before ironing.

What else (besides your teeth) do you clean with toothpaste?
