Stock up on toothpicks! Purchase the round ones, not the flat ones, you can buy them really inexpensively at the dollar store. No longer will they just be used to clean your teeth or for h'ordeurves.
Use them to clean all the tiny grooves and crevices around your house, i.e. in the kitchen and bathroom, etc. They are more effective than using an old toothbrush in a lot of instances because they can get in between and underneath surfaces.
Trust me, try using them, but I warn you, using them will become addictive, you will be searching for other places to use them, they are such an effective cleaning tool! If you like, you can spray liquid cleaner in the area to be cleaned and the toothpicks will help deliver the cleaning solution into the jewelry grooves and crevices. The more you use them, the more ideas for their use you will come up with.
For instance, if you have to glue something tiny, i.e. something onto some type of jewellery, (not a typo - we spell jewellery differently in Canada), it works really well, not to mention cleaning tiny groves around rings etc. in your jewellery. Trust me you will come up with countless uses for this little tool. When you do please let the rest of us know what you have come up with.
Enjoy this tip, I know you will if you try it! All the best guys!
