The humble toothbrush. Great for oral health and dental hygeine, agreed.
But we know they need replacing every now and again. So what do you normally do when your toothbrush has come to the end of it's life? Leave it in the bathroom drawer and forget about it? Throw it away? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the spirit of not contributing to the environmental disaster that is landfill, how about re-purposing it?
Did you know the unassuming toothbrush has a MULTITUDE of purposes, beyond just keeping your smile nice? It's a handy beauty kit ️SECRET WEAPON️!
You can use it for:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨Taming, smoothing and brushing up brows (add some soap or gel and really get those babies looking fluffy AF)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨Smoothing down baby hairs around your hairline with a lil' gel⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ✨Smoothing flyaways - add a spritz of hairspray and gently comb over the top of the head⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨Exfoliating lips - smother a balm over the lips and brush gently with a CLEAN dry toothbrush to remove dry skin⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are so many other things you can use a toothbrush for too if you're into finding a second life for your household products and cutting down on waste.
They're great for cleaning the soles of shoes (those pesky little groove sint he soles of your trainers are always so HARD to clean) as well as cleaning fiddly areas like grout and the stovetop.
Just be sure you stash one in your beauty kit and use a completely different one for cleaning!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Zero waste, low impact beauty? We got this!
Is there anything else you would use a repurposed toothbrush for that we haven't touched on here?
We'd love to hear about it in the comments!
