Multipurpose Monday

As I was brushing my teeth today



I started thinking of how versatile a simple toothbrush can be.

Obviously the small size makes it perfect for grooming your eyebrows.


Or getting rid of those pesky rough heels. That is if you didn't just get a pedicure on Saturday where the girl already made your feet baby butt smooth before lacquering your toe nails in green.


Use it when there are unmentionables laying around that you would rather not touch.



But it's not just for the bathroom. Take it to the kitchen to help clean up small spills on the counter top.


Or cleaning the back splash that got grimy.


Finally, when you're done be sure to wash your hands and clean your nails.



Betcha didn't think a toothbrush could be used for so much. Hmmmmm neither did I, but you'll do just about anything to make sure you start off the week right with a semi-funny post.

I'd like to say that the toothbrush was not harmed in the making of this blog post, but alas it gave it's life for Multipurpose Monday. There was no way in hell I could use it again. For anything. Oh and all these pictures were totally staged so I really can't attest to whether they really work. I'm a fraud. Sorry about that.

Have you guessed yet? Theme Week is BACKKK! So go visit Denise and find out what's she's saying about Multipurpose Monday. And then come back tomorrow as we both celebrate SITS Spring Fling with a GIVEAWAY!

I love the picking up of the unmentionables. And don't forget a toothbrush is also handy for jewelry cleaning. If I had any jewelry. Which I really don't.

Happy Birthday!

You came up with uses for tooth brush that I haven't tried before. You can actually brush your TEETH with it??? Seriously though, I now have new found respect for the lowly tooth brush. And may your's rest in peace.

Hilarious post! Some of these things I've never tried before. I use my old toothbrush to clean around the edges of the kitchen sink and then the toilet!
Saw that you wrote it was your birthday on SITS roll call ...

Sis said...

I actually use a toothbrush as an eyelash "comb"... after putting mascara on, I brush them up... since I hate the stupid curler gadget.

The Royal Family said...

I am so glad you wont use that toothbrush again.. even staging those things are enough to throw it away... gross! Did you know it could reach under the rim of the toilet too?

Kathy B! said...

I'm just so relieved that the toothbrush was "retired" after it's escapades... but doesn't that mean you had to ((gasp)) put it to sleep?! I think that you have to remove your disclaimer...

P.S. Can you tell I'm behind on my blog reading?!

Comeing soon:
How to clean your coffee pot with a tampon! LOL
Hey you know thats not really a bad idea...you know for all those small parts. haha

That was hilarious girl...My mother probably would have puked a little...the toothbrush is her answer to all illnesses and bad dreams. "Mom I had a nightmare!" "It's OK honey now go brush your teeth" "MOM I have a sore throat!" "Oh no, Poor Baby..Now go brush your teeth" lol

OK I'm being way too goofy...My name is Monica and I am brand new to the SITS family. I look forward to getting to know you better!

Have a wonderful weekend!
