Back in the day, the Ipana toothpaste commercial had one of the catchiest jingles around. I remember walking to or from school, locking arms with friends, skipping along and singing brusha brusha brusha, here’s the new Ipana,,  giggling like a gaggle of happy geese.

Fast forward to present, and here I was on Tuesday afternoon, an expired toothbrush in hand, scouring the little crusty crevices of the kitchen sink with it. I was all alone, singing the jingle, giggling like a goose who had just stepped into a puddle. It’s funny how these  things suddenly come back to us, isn’t it?

As I worked, banishing all the hard water crud that accumulates on our faucets, I started thinking about kitchen tools; the really useful ones, like an old toothbrush, which come in handy for scrubbing small crevices, and I wondered . . .

Do you use a toothbrush for things other than teeth?

Do you have on handy other dual-purpose items in your kitchen?
