Toothpaste is only used to remove plaque but also to patch up a hole in the wall in just seconds. When you need to fill a nail hole fast, all that you have to do is look into your bathroom cabinet.Toothpaste is a great alternative to spackling if you have a hole in your wall smaller than 1/4 inch.
Try to find a toothpaste close to the color of the wall, then squeeze the paste into the hole and wipe off the excess with a putty knife or playing card. You may need to do a second coat, as toothpaste tends to shrink as it dries. Believe it or not, toothpaste works wonders. When the paste dries, it forms a finish similar to spackle.
This simple trick offers something a little more — and it’s going to save you tons of time and money.
The good news is the crusty edges that collect around the cap are best suited for this project. Toothpaste doesn’t rot or mold so this can be used as a permanent fix or a temporary one until you gather supplies from the hardware store.
