You might recall that new tube design called SavePaste that some smart folks came up with to help get every bit of toothpaste out of the tube. The last dollops of paste left inside the tube might not amount to a whole lot of dollars’ worth, but the point is recycling and not letting things unnecessarily go to waste.
However, given that it’s a completely new design for the tube, it might take a while before toothpaste companies start applying it to their tubes. So if you can’t change the tube, you might as well do something about the brush.
That’s what Catherine Werdel was thinking when she came up with the tube squeezing toothbrush. Below the neck of the toothbrush is a thin slot where one of your toothpaste tube can go through to push the paste out.
I always find it interesting when people come up with ways and means to try and get the most out of something instead of letting it go to waste, even if it’s just a little thing. Because, really, if you put it all together, in the end, it will amount to a whole lot.
