Toothpaste Tube - You Can Actually Empty It

I am sure that everyone with teeth should have difficult experience of depleting toothpaste tube, squeezing, flattering & rolling the tube by getting the last particle. Various methods & gadgets have been used, you can refer this website for innovative tools to work on it http://www.core77.com/blog/object_culture/getting_that_last_drop_of_toothpaste_9574.asp

I came across Taiwan TV channel, introducing a straw to empty out the tube effortlessly. Try this out for which you may be surprised how simple it isStep 1 : All you need is just a drinking straw
Step 2 : Insert the straw in the tube, blow and inflate it

Step 3 : Remove straw & close the cover, swing the tube vigorously by holding the end part, the reminding toothpaste will eventually slide towards the opening of the tubeDone !! you can now use it for another 50 more times, repeat step 1 ~ 3 should you needed. I apply it on my cleanser or anything in tube form.

Brilliant idea right ??

wow, this is something new!! but i'm using a toothpaste holder, dono still can apply the straw or not when it's almost empty..

Jys - I believe the toothpaste holder can't actually empty everything out. But with the straw, you can it out till the last drop. Happy trying :)
