Here's the filthy truth: You're supposed to get a new toothbrush every 3 to 4 months according to the Dental Association. If you've been hanging onto your grimy toothbrush for far too long, the good news is that it's not the germs that are causing the problem. It's the bristles! If the bristles have started to spew in different directions, your toothbrush is not doing as good of a job as it should at cleaning your teeth. Swap it our for a new one and save $0.50 on Colgate Optic White Toothbrush. But don't throw away the old one just yet!
There are tons of uses for old toothbrushes you may have never thought of before. Repurpose your old toothbrush for everything from cleaning your bathroom to exfoliating your lips and save big in the process. Read on...
Silver Jewelry: Clean silver jewelry with an old toothbrush and a dab of toothpaste. Rinse with warm water and leave the sparkle behind! Save $0.75 on Colgate Optic White Toothpaste.
Cheese Grater: The little bristles of a toothbrush are the best for getting into the crevices of a cheese grater. Save $0.50 on Palmolive Fresh Infusion Dish Soap.
Carpet Stains: The small bristles are great for getting into every carpet fiber. Use a toothbrush to spot clean laundry and upholstery as well. Save $1.00 on Spot Shot Carpet Stain Remover.
Bathroom: Grime builds up in the bathroom easily. Use a toothbrush to clean all those hard-to-reach places like around the faucet and between tile grouting. Save $1.00 on Soft Scrub Spray.
Unruly Eyebrows: Why purchase a pricy eyebrow brush when a toothbrush can get the job done for free?
Flyaways: The head of a brush is the perfect size for flyways and thin baby hairs along your hairline. Spray a little bit of hairspray on your toothbrush and easily sweep them back.
Blow Dryer Vents: The back of a blow dryer collects lint and dust which causes your blowdryer to break down faster. Cleaning between the tiny mesh holes of a blowdryer's vent isn't easy, but with a toothbrush it is! Just brush the bristles back and forth across the vent and it'll instantly lift the particles right out.
Lip Exfoliator: The bristles of an old toothbrush have softened up a bit making for the perfect flip exfoliator. Gently rub the bristles in circular motions on your lips before applying lipstick for clump-free, kissable lips.
Toothbrush bracelets: Repurpose old toothbrushes with THIS fun kid's craft project.
Garden Markers: Write on the handle with permanent marker and use them as colorful stakes to identify plants in the garden.
Pumpkins: In the spirit of the season, save your old toothbrushes for getting those pesky dirt clumps off your pumpkin before carving!
I recently had my makeup professionally done for my brother's wedding. Normally I would never splurge on something so fleeting, but my brother is only getting married once (hopefully! jk), so I figured, why not join the rest of the bridesmaids in a day of pampering? And of course, never one to let a penny go to waste, I made sure to drill the makeup artist on all of her beauty secrets so I can attempt to recreate the look at home.
I love makeup as much as the next girl, but I prefer the less-is-more approach to looking fabulous. I made sure to tell her to give me a really clean, natural look, and she really listened! The makeup made me feel like the best version of myself, and as much as I hate to admit it, her expertise was really worth the extra bucks.
The best thing I took away from my makeup sesh was that the key to natural beauty is all in the skin. The right skincare regime paired a little bit of makeup is all you need to look naturally you, but better :) Read on for helpful tips!
