Squeezing toothpaste out of the tube can be a very frustrating process (especially if there is very little toothpaste left!).
Thankfully, there are a number of tools available on the market that can make getting toothpaste onto the brush a little bit easier. Below are direct links to some examples of such products:
- Rolling Tube Toothpaste Squeezer by Generic (at amazon.ca) has a right rotator handle that allows you to squeeze the toothpaste out of the tube more easily. This device, which costs about $3 to $5 (Cdn), can also be used on tubes for cream, face wash, etc.
- Tube Squeezer by BIOS Medical (at agecomfort.com) has suction cups that attach the device to the counter and a thumb rotator screw that puts pressure on the tube, making it easier to squeeze out the toothpaste. This device costs about $13 (Cdn), plus a shipping fee.
- Automatic Toothpaste Dispenser and Squeezer by iLife Tech (at amazon.ca) is a hands-free, one-touch toothpaste dispenser that uses vacuum technology to pump out the toothpaste for you. This product, which also comes with a toothbrush holder capable of holding up to 5 toothbrushes, costs about $20 (Cdn), plus a shipping fee.
