- If just dipping my sterling in Tarn-X doesn’t do the trick, I can dip the toothbrush in there and scrub, scrub, scrub. Tarnish is banished.
- When I get globs of white deodorant on the armpits of my dresses yet no other part of the dress is even remotely dirty, I can dip my old toothbrush in a bit of cold water and Woolite and scrub, scrub, scrub. Gets rid of the gunk, gets rid of the stank.
- Clean and dry, it works great for a little suede-brush-like maintenance on hats and shoes.
- When rubbing cloth to cloth just isn’t getting the stain out, a dab of Palmolive and an old toothbrush work wonders.
Next time your dentist gives you a fancy new one, old onto your old toothbrush. It’s key to more clothing-care hacks than you might imagine.
