14 hidden super-powers of the humble toothpaste

14. Remove Ink Stains

Don’t you hate when you forget to take a pen out of your pants pocket before throwing them in the wash, only to remove your clothes and discover an ink stain on every item? We do too. Fortunately, there is a fix to this problem, and no, it’s not a magical way to remind yourself to remove that pen from your pocket (though that would be nice too). It’s toothpaste! All you have to do is rub some paste on the stain, let it dry, wash it the next day, and like magic – your clothes are stain-free for another day.
