There’s nothing more frustrating than knowing you have toothpaste left in the tube but not being able to get it out. Not only is it maddening, but it’s also wasteful.
TikToker @buddywyrick loves “doing dad things.” Some of his favorite things include “sports, cars, lifehacks and puns.” The father often comes up with a few lifehacks of his own, like showing how to hide a spare key or how to open a bottle with a piece of paper.
To save on toothpaste, he came up with an easy way to get every last drop out of the tube. All you need for the hack is a couple of popsicle sticks and rubber bands along with your favorite toothpaste.
“Take the two popsicle sticks and sandwich them around the tube of toothpaste and secure them with a rubber band,” @buddywyrick explains.
The dad moves the popsicle sticks up and down, keeping the contents moving toward the opening of the tube.
“Then you have a little slider that will keep the toothpaste moving forward. And voilá your troubles are gone,” he says.
One TikToker found the easy lifehack to be quite useful, saying, “Best follow I found today. Making my life as a dad much easier. Keep ’em coming, dude!”
