Throw it away and start with a new one. To prevent the build-up of toothpaste and other stuff on the brush, rinse it thoroughly after use and stand it so it can drain freely, like this.

Similar to SurpiseDog's answer, I find that very hot (tea brewing temperature) works very well. Simply fill a mug with the water and place the toothbrush in head down. I let it sit for a minute and then brush my teeth with no additional paste. If there is still paste, back into the hot water. Do this three or four times and the tooth brush will look brand ...

Hold the toothbrush under boiling water and that gunk should come right off. This is also a great way to disinfect a toothbrush as the hot water will kill any bacteria.

Acetone and methyl ethyl ketone dissolve cyanoacrylate, i.e. "superglue". These are used in nail polish remover, though the commercial polish removers might have water added, which slows dissolving. Acetone is also available in hardware stores, e.g. Lowe's. N.B. These solvents are highly flammable and somewhat toxic. Use with caution! Also, test the solvent ...

In the spirit of an XY Problem , let me offer an alternative solution: You want to prevent breakouts caused by bacteria on the phone being transferred to your skin 1. The answer: Don’t let the phone touch your skin. Instead of holding the device up to your ear, use a headset (or the loudspeaker, if privacy isn’t an issue) for your phone conversations. ...

REASON 1- In hot water, some dyes from some fabrics (e.g. blue denim jeans) can bleed out and slightly dye other fabrics. The next time you buy a new pair of bluejeans throw them into a bathtub full of hot water, you will see the water turn blue. This effect can make a white tee shirt turn bluish (or pinkish, with red dye, etc.) REASON 2- Many people use ...

Put it in the dishwasher? That might work if its not on a too hot setting

You need a disinfectant (rubbing alcohol will do, or some other sanitizing liquid), a way to apply it and a way to remove it again. Either use a spray bottle (reusable, use what you have around) to spray the screen, then wipe it off with a piece of cloth (lint-free, washable) or tissue paper (although less sustainable, but at least biodegradable), or ...

I use HEPA+ filters that go down to PM2.5 to filter everything that is bad not just dust but including smoke sized particles. Not sure you would like the ongoing noise but if you run them during the day while you are at work they will still do a real good job.

Leather likes oil, it helps condition and protect the leather. If you wash oils out of the leather you will need to replace it. Instead of trying to wash out the areas that have some Canola oil on them, oil the entire boot with Canola oil. There are several references on line suggesting the Canola oil (or other vegetable oils) is a good product for the ...

Apparently Nubuck is very particular and you need a special cleaner for it: www.amazon.ca/Kiwi-SELECT-Suede-Nubuck-Cleaner/dp/B0010TJ9IO For more info below, I extracted the most important tips from this article: www.wikihow.com/Clean-Nubuck I would start with "Use leather degreaser and leather cleaner to loosen oily stains": Leather degreaser typically ...

I used to suffer from this, especially with shirts. I was told about a product called Deo Go which you soak into the affected area, leave for 10-15mins and then wash out on a regular cycle. It worked well, but will pull the colour out of coloured t-shirts so is only really good for white shirts. Since changing to an aluminium free anti-perspirant, it's less ...

If they smell even after washing this could be caused by mildew in the clothes (a kind of fungus). This happens if the clothes took too long to dry or were left damp and warm for too long. You can fix this by soaking the clothes in a mixture of hot water and soda crystals for a couple of hours (Sodium carbonate), then washing as normal. The sodium ...
