It’s one of many nightmares for anyone stretching a buck: finding a tube of toothpaste in the trash that has barely been used up.
Sure, a tube of toothpaste might not break the bank, but just because it’s hard to squeeze out past a certain deflation doesn’t mean there isn’t any minty fresh taste left.
So, yeah, you could resign yourself to the fact that your friends or loved ones just don’t get your money-saving savvy, or you could get them a gift that will change their bathroom game for years to come.
Uncommon Goods has a Tube Wringer, which is essentially a vice grip for your toothpaste. With the turn of a handle, the metal apparatus fastens to the near-death tube and crimps it until there’s a joyous blast of teeth-whitening magic coming out the spout. This tool will take each tube to its final days, so when toothpaste is in the trash, you’ll know it’s as empty as it can be. And bonus, they won’t need to buy toothpaste as frequently, saving them money! It’s a gift that literally keeps giving.
Who it’s for
Penny pinchers; people who enjoy squishing things with all of their might; people with teeth.
$21.95, but think of the years of savings from keeping your paste good to the last drop.
