Toothpaste Holder & Squeezer Is Good To The Last Drop


Toothpaste tubes aren't the best modern designs around, and a number of gadgets both simple and complex have come down the pike in an effort to squeeze each tube dry. This little wall-mounted device is one of the best so far.

Available in 4 colors (white, orange, blue and green), the generically yet functionally named Toothpaste Squeezer affixes to your bathroom's tiled wall with a built-in suction cup.





Feed the nether end of a standard tube of toothpaste into the cylinder, which has a roller inside, until it's properly gripped. Then give the roller a twist every time you brush - out comes the toothpaste and the tube gets slightly shorter.

The principle is much like that of an old-fashioned wringer washing machine or one of those slotted metal keys that used to come with sardine cans. Those worked great, wonder why they phased them out?

The Toothpaste Squeezer doesn't look to be especially rough or rugged, but it's not expensive and you'll save in the long run buy not having to buy toothpaste as often. Get yours from Rinkya Stores, your source for Japanese cool stuff. (via Gradient)  

(Editor's Update: This item is no longer available from Rinkya. You can see a many more options here under Toothpaste Dispensers.)

Useful but ugly

I'm a neat freak and don't like the toothpaste tube to be seen when not in use. Hanging right out there looks pretty tacky.

Re: "useful but ugly"

You could hang this on the BACK of the medicine cabinet door. Or on the back of the medicine cabinet itself, or on the side.
