If you travel, you have probably purchased a small quantity of some product that you already buy in regular quantity or bulk.
Toothpaste often comes in 6.4oz tubes or greater, but the TSA allows 3oz or less.
For the last several years, I have occasionally transferred toothpaste from a large tube into a small tube in order to travel by plane, and actually, I am a minimalist and I prefer using a travel tube at home so that it takes up less room on the vanity.
I am frugal, and creative, and for years i simply made a little bit of a mess while squeezing the big into the small and I end brushing my teeth with the over-fill or spillage (quantity 3-5 times more than normal brushing)
This easy tool will save me time and money and will probably last the rest of my life.
Step 1: WHAT DO YOU NEED???
- at least 2 toothpaste tubes(or LIDS) to start with.
one "sachet" of SUGRU (uncured silicone rubber)
scissors (to carefully open SUGRU)
drill with proper drill-bit
Tweezers to remove drilling shreds if there are any
Step 2: SUGRU is awesome 1 million uses
I used this one sachet for 5 purposes:
1) 1st toothpaste converter
2) 2nd toothpaste converter
3) a dab for the top of a silly towel-hook that always lets the towel slip off
4) 6 dabs to make the spigot near my garage a little grippier
5) a cord holder on the rear edge of my desk
all in about 30 minutes
and after 24 hours I was ready to finish the toothpaste converters
Step 3: Less is more! It is very Powerful stuff.
There are plenty instructions on SUGRU so read 'em
Make a ring on one of the lids first.
