5 Things To Clean Using A Toothbrush
You can use it for more than just dental duties!
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.
