10 Uses for the Common Toothpick

10 Uses for the Common Toothpick

  1. Getting gum off your  shoe.
  2. Test if your cake has baked completely and is ready to be taken out of the oven ( of course, don’t use the same one used above).
  3. Use them to eat those swanky party weenies (ok maybe they’re not swanky but they sure are cute; aren’t they?)
  4. Light a candle (they burn much slower and longer than matches… try it!)
  5. Build a model ship! It might take a while and a lot more than a few toothpicks!
  6. Get that last bit of food from between your teeth (but not in front of your date).
  7. Cleaning under your nails… carefully
  8. Make legs for your potatoes (helps them to cook evenly, quickly and your kids will have fun poking the potatoes with holes).
  9. Pressing the reset button (they are the perfect size to fit in those tiny recessed holes).
  10. Cleaning your computer’s keyboard.

  1. Adding food coloring gel to my buttercreme, lebelling plants in my students mini gardens, scrapping the gunk out of odly shapped objects, holding styrafoam models together. I think that’s all for now

  2. lol @ no. 2 and don’t leave them in the cake..hee hee
    Lovely post! Now who could have thought that the common toothpick has to many uses? Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  3. We use to use them to see who went first at something; or had to do something with breaking them in specific parts. Also when I make taquitos they hold it as I fry them! 😀
