Toothpaste Tricks

I discovered something amazing when i was browsing over the web looking for a cleaning product to polish paint. (Old paint like on for instance...say, typewriters) You know what i found out? That TOOTHPASTE works perfectly. Not the expensive toothpaste with bits and pieces in it but the green Colgate stuff. It is unbelievable what kind of results you get from using toothpaste on the paint on a typewriter. I don't recommend doing this on a typewriter that has a crinkly paint finish or the machine is older then the 50's since the paint might've become fragile.

THIS WORKS BEST ON 60'S AND 70'S MACHINERY. - I am not responsible for any damage done to typewriters. This trick works for me and i would like to share it. However, if something goes wrong while a other person performs is not my fault. This is warning.

The toothpaste cleans paint brilliantly because it has certain chemicals in it that take dirt right off. (Can you imagine you putting that in your mouth?)

What to do:

- 1 - Put some toothpaste on your finger tip or cloth.
- 2 - Gently rub it onto the surface, circling it into it.
- 3 - Let it sit for about 2 minutes.
- 4 - Take a dry smooth soft cloth and wipe most of it off.
- 5 - Grab a non-acidic multi-purpose cleaner and wipe the remainder off.
- 6 - Let it sit for about 2-3 minutes.
- 7 - Wipe it clean and dry and there you have it.

  1. I've read this before somewhere in a typewriter restoration guide. Maybe it was Polts'? Anyway, it explained that toothpaste for dentures can have an amazing effect. Never tried it though. Good to see it actually works!

  2. If the teeth along with dental hygiene usually are not healthy along with in good shape it's not at all recommended to use one of the best whitening toothpaste solutions.
    Always check with your dentist if you're unsure. While whitening toothpastes are great to brighten your laugh,
    to keep it doing this you ought to maintain consistent and suitable brushing practices.
    This in reality is since important if not more important versus toothpaste itself.

    1. ...mmmm, however, in this article, I am referring to using toothpaste for a different matter.
      However, I appreciate the concern. :)
