It seems like brushing your teeth is always something you do when you are tired, am I right? It’s the first thing I do in the morning right after my alarm has woken me up which automatically means that I am doing it with my eyes closed and sometimes this is a bad thing. Why? Well, I get toothpaste all over my clothes – and we all know that this means a big stain.
And many people think that a toothpaste stain is not that bad but in some cases when the toothpaste contains hydrogen peroxide it will leave a stain which means you need to immediately take care of the problem.
So how to deal with a toothpaste stain?
Certainly, the first thing you need to do is remove the excess either with a spoon, a knife, or anything similar you have close to you.
Then mix a tablespoon of your normal liquid laundry detergent with a cup of water, dip a cloth in the mixture, and start treating the stain with it.
Then you can simply throw the clothing item in the washing machine and wash it as usual.
What about toothpaste stains on a carpet or upholstery?
In general, the steps you should take are the same but you would want to swap the laundry detergent with a liquid dishwashing soap.
Again, remove the excess toothpaste, make soapy water, dip a cloth in the mixture and start treating the stain.
Since you can’t wash your carpet or upholstery in the washing machine you need to make sure you have removed the soapy residue off of the surface completely. Soapy water attracts dirt, dust, and other impurities which will leave a dirty patch – and we don’t want that! Do that by using a damp cloth.
