A toothbrush isn’t only for cleaning your teeth in the morning and at night.

It is a versatile tool that has too often been relegated to the realm of only oral hygiene. The toothbrush can do so much more. Here are some toothbrush hacks that show you other ways to use the toothbrush:

1. Clean combs and hair brushes

The toothbrush is the handiest tool for cleaning your hair brushes and comb.  Soak your brushes and combs in warm water and some soap, then scrub with a toothbrush to get all the hard to reach places.
