time to brush

Can I be the only one who gets excited opening a fresh tube of toothpaste?! I’ll only pay for the best and there’s something about that little present to myself, to my smile! And to make sure I get to eat all my favorite foods for years to come!

But before you open that new tube, check it out…. lay the near-empty tube of toothpaste on its side, and take the flat surface from the bottom of another container to press it along the exterior of the tube to gather lingering product off the inner sides and down into the cap.

THEN, snip the tube in half (saving the top to re-cap as pictured) and there you’ll find your treasure of several more brushings. Don’t waste a drop. And since everyone in my house get their own tube of toothpaste, go ahead, double dip!
