Squeeze as much toothpaste as you can from the tube

by Mark R

For some reason, we are still addicted to the tube of toothpaste as an acceptable container. I’m sure that we all have our way of getting out the last drop of toothpaste from that tube.

Some of you use that method where you roll up the tube, or spread the tube out on the sinktop corner. I’m sure there are other methods, but designer Catherine Werdel’s invention could change things.

I don’t really think that I need to explain how this works. All you need to do is slide the toothpaste tube through to the toothbrush. When I first saw this particular device, I thought it was an original idea. Then I wondered how in the world someone squeezes out the toothpaste on the brush with an apparatus like this.

Perhaps we need just switch all tubes to those hard plastic pump things. In fact, why didn’t we completely make the switch back in the eighties? Is it because these hard plastic tubes always leave some toothpaste inside? I am pretty certain that it is harder to get the toothpaste out of the hard plastic tube than it is with the squeezable one.

I don’t see any word on when this particular device will be out yet.

This is a far, far better design that eliminates the more than just the every last drop problem at the source: http://www.yankodesign.com/2011/07/15/get-more-out-of-your-toothpaste-tube/
