Remove Scuff Marks From Shoes With Toothpaste

Below is a video showing you how to remove scuff marks from shoes with toothpaste.

I like this video, because it gives you a quick tip for fixing a problem with an item already in your home.

Basically, you just put toothpaste onto the shoe where the scuff mark is, and rub it gently. The mild abrasives in the toothpaste which help to clean your teeth also help remove the scuff marks on the shoes.

When you watch the video you will notice that he uses white toothpaste. He doesn't explain why, but in fact it is very simple and also very important so I am surprised he did not mention it.

Many toothpastes, nowadays, also come in blue or other colors. These colors, if you've ever gotten some smeared on your clothing, stand out and make a toothpaste stain of their own.

Therefore, always use white toothpaste for cleaning your shoes! If all you have is blue toothpaste don't even attempt it!

I also like in the video how he uses pantyhose to wipe off the toothpaste, which is another great use for a common object in your home!

Here is the video for full details. (He has a separate hint afterward for removing chocolate stains.)

You can learn more about removing chocolate stains with water softener here, if you're interested (which was the second part of the video).

Now, back to the topic of how to remove scuff marks. Tell me in the comments how this worked for you.
