Have you ever tried to brush your car headlights with toothpaste? Trust us — it works better than any professional cleaner you can buy in the shops. Some things have more than one everyday function, and life can be made so much easier in unexpected ways if you think outside of the box.

Bright Side collected a few simple hacks that fit into this category perfectly.

You can easily open a tight jar cover with a tablespoon.

An egg carton can become a great home for Christmas toys when they’re not hanging on the tree.

You can shine your car headlights with toothpaste.

Use towel hooks to fix your tablet on the wall. Now you can wash the dishes and watch your favorite shows at the same time!

Use aluminum foil to cover things while painting, and also to clean glassware.
