How a Binder Clip Changed My Life

That may sound like a flashy title, but this was one of the first tips that solved one of my frustrating problems.

It’s always too hard to get the last bit of toothpaste out of the tube. You squeeze and squeeze, but it just won’t come out. The worst part of it is that you know there are at least 3-4 nights of cinnamon paste left in there taunting you. But no more!

I give you a solution: use a binder clip.

Roll up the tube, clip the binder clip of appropriate size on the end, and you can maintain the necessary pressure to get (almost) every ounce of toothpaste you paid for out of that tube.

You’re welcome.
