    Excellent - this gets my VOTE. I even made it - though I used a clothespin instead of nails or swabs. It really works great!

    Yes! This clothespin version gives me really, really good ideas. Thank you! And as for all you saying that it's so much easier to use your hand or the back of a toothbrush, I think you have too much time on your hands. These 'silly' devices are useful to those of us who have to squeeze and run and worry about flattening later when we have a moment. And those of you saying you can just buy them at Walmart or Big Lots well, what are you doing on this website-- particularly this instructable? This is here to help people make useful stuff with things they have around their house. It's for people who don't like buying what they could make in the same time as it would take to go to the store-- and for people like me who don't have monies :(

    I didn't have any cotton swabs handy, so I used a long bobby pin and a rubber band. I put this on a tube of cat hairball remedy. The stuff is absurdly expensive, and I was frustrated at not being able to get the last bit out of the tube.

    Thank you so much for this excellent idea and for helping me save some money!

    Why not using "acoclips" (they're called so in my country. I dunno how they are called there)?

    I've always just used the handle of the toothbrush while having the toothpaste tube on a flat surface (countertop, tile wall, etc). Kind of squeegee the toothpaste towards the opening in the tube with the toothbrush handle.
