\"toothpaste\"<\/a><\/p>\n

We know that toothpaste is important for keeping your teeth clean and your mouth minty fresh, but it also has many interesting uses around the house<\/p>\n

Remove scuffs from shoes<\/strong><\/p>\n

A little toothpaste does an amazing job of removing scuffs from leather shoes. Just squirt a dab on the scuffed area and rub with a soft cloth. Wipe clean with a damp cloth. The leather will look like new.<\/p>\n

Clean your sneakers<\/strong><\/p>\n

Want to clean and whiten the rubber part of your sneakers? Get out the non-gel toothpaste and an old toothbrush. After scrubbing, clean off the toothpaste with a damp cloth.<\/p>\n

Clean your clothes iron<\/strong><\/p>\n

The mild abrasive in non-gel toothpaste is just the ticket for scrubbing the gunk off the bottom plate of your clothes iron. Apply the toothpaste to the cool iron, scrub with a rag, then rinse clean.<\/p>\n

Polish a diamond ring<\/strong><\/p>\n

Put a little toothpaste on an old toothbrush and use it to make your diamond ring sparkle instead of your teeth. Clean off the residue with a damp cloth.<\/p>\n

Deodorize baby bottles<\/strong><\/p>\n

Baby bottles inevitably pick up a sour-milk smell. Toothpaste will remove the odor in a jiffy. Just put some on your bottle brush and scrub away. Be sure to rinse thoroughly.<\/p>\n

Prevent bathroom mirrors from fogging<\/strong><\/p>\n

Ouch! You cut yourself shaving and it\u2019s no wonder \u2014 you can\u2019t see your face clearly in that fogged-up bathroom mirror. Next time, coat the mirror with non-gel toothpaste and wipe it off before you get in the shower. When you get out, the mirror won\u2019t be fogged.<\/p>\n

Shine bathroom and kitchen chrome<\/strong><\/p>\n

They make commercial cleaners with a very fine abrasive designed to shine up chrome, but if you don\u2019t have any handy, the fine abrasive in non-gel toothpaste works just as well. Just smear on the toothpaste and polish with a soft, dry cloth.<\/p>\n

Clean the bathroom sink<\/strong><\/p>\n

Non-gel toothpaste works as well as anything else to clean the bathroom sink. The tube\u2019s sitting right there, so just squirt some in, scrub with a sponge, and rinse it out. Bonus: The toothpaste will kill any odors emanating from the drain trap.<\/p>\n

Remove crayon from walls<\/strong><\/p>\n

Did your crayon-toting little one get creative on your wall? Roll up your sleeves and grab a tube of non-gel toothpaste and a rag or \u2014 better yet \u2014 a scrub brush. Squirt the toothpaste on the wall and start scrubbing. The fine abrasive in the toothpaste will rub away the crayon every time. Rinse the wall with water.<\/p>\n

Remove ink or lipstick stains from fabric<\/strong><\/p>\n

Oh no, a pen opened up in the pocket of your favourite shirt! This may or may not work, depending on the fabric and the ink, but it is certainly worth a try before consigning the shirt to the scrap bin. Put non-gel toothpaste on the stain and rub the fabric vigorously together. Rinse with water. Did some of the ink come out? Great! Repeat the process a few more times until you get rid of all the ink. The same process works for lipstick.<\/p>\n","image":"http:\/\/massystorestt.com","link":"http:\/\/massystorestt.com\/10-ways-to-clean-using-toothpaste\/"},{"title":"15 Foods that are Good for Your Heart","headline":"

    It\u2019s that time of year again. The \u201cI have to fit into this carnival costume, look good and feel good on the road\u201d time. So here\u2019s a Three Bean Soup meal idea using CUISINE beans, that fits in just right if your interest is figure, fitness, flavor or all of the above and then some.<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00311\"<\/p>\n

    Cut some pumpkin into cubes. We used about 2 cups, just for a little flavor to compliment the beans.<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00314\"<\/p>\n

    Then dice everything up. Ginger, garlic\u2026<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00318\"<\/p>\n

    Pimiento. Going for flavor and not for heat.<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00319\"<\/p>\n

    And onion to contribute to that earthy flavor.<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00334\"<\/p>\n

    In a pressure cooker, add a little oil. Just enough to coat the surface.<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00337\"<\/p>\n

    Add the ginger, garlic, pimiento and onion to the pressure cooker and saute (without the cover) for about a minute to start unlocking the flavors.<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00339\"<\/p>\n

    Then add your beans. We used CUISINE Lima Beans, Black Beans and Red Beans this time, but feel free to try various combinations. About a half pack of each.<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00340\"<\/p>\n

    Add Salt and Black Pepper to taste, then mix it around to distribute evenly.<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00344\"<\/p>\n

    Add hot water. Enough to cover the contents by about 4 to 5 inches.<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00379\"<\/p>\n

    Then cover your pressure cooker and let it cook.<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00380\"<\/p>\n

    Cook times will vary according to your pressure cooker, so read your manual and follow the instructions there.<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00383\"<\/p>\n

    Remove your pressure cooker from the heat, let cool and open. Then place it back on the heat. Top up with hot water if you don\u2019t have enough liquid for a soup. Keep in mind, you\u2019ll be cooking this for about 10 more minutes.<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00385\"<\/p>\n

    Cube your seasoned chicken breast (or leave it out for a veggie option)\u2026<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00386\"<\/p>\n

    Some carrots\u2026<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00393\"<\/p>\n

    And add them to the soup. Let it cook uncovered for 10 to 15 more minutes, until the chicken is done and the carrots achieve your desired texture.<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00462\"<\/p>\n

    Spoon it into a deep bowl<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n

    \"DSC00474\"<\/p>\n

    Top it with Micro Greens, Chives, Parsley or any other green herb of your preference and that\u2019s it.<\/p>\n

     <\/p>\n
