It may come as a surprise to a lot of people, but aside from keeping our pearly whites bright, the trusty toothbrush is one of the most underrated cleaning tools around the home. If you think about it, it can do quite a lot of things—it can get to hard-to-reach-spots, slide itself through crevices, scrub away tough stains, and more.

What are you waiting for? Put your old ones to good use before retiring them completely with these tips:

1. Hair Dryer

Is your hair dryer not as strong as it used to be? Check the vent for lint that may be blocking the motor from working well. Use a dry toothbrush to sweep off the fibers that are stuck at the back of your gadget.

2. Fridge Accessories 

See the dishes that sit underneath the fridge and dinnerware racks? If you don't clean these regularly, they might develop molds as these are always moist. Wash them with soap and use the small head of the toothbrush to get into the deepest corners.

3. Cutlery

For those who have been searching high and low for ways to keep silver sparkling, consider scrubbing your delicate pieces with a combination of whitening toothpaste and an old toothbrush. It works just as well as expensive silver polish for a fraction of the cost.

4. Cushions

Tired of cleaning up crumbs from the crevices of your couch with your hands? Here's a smart hack: run the rough bristles of a toothbrush along the crevice to loosen them up and use a lint roller to pick up the residue.

5. Tile Grout

A toothbrush can come in handy for scrubbing away stubborn stains and grout. Mixed with a bit of elbow grease and a gentle cleaning solution, scrubbing porous tile surfaces will surely make it look brand new.
