    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.

    It is way cheaper than buying the pro. ones, but I like bruce miller and f5mando's better.

    well, small rubber bands are more efficient but you could probably use normal ones. If you have latex rubber bands(the ones for braces)they would work well

    I don't know which is worse: the fact that people took the time to write 75+ comments debating the relative merits of this method, or the fact that I took the time to read them all. I have a solution for all of you: enter the 21st century. I don't know if you know this, but you can now buy toothpaste in tubes that stand up, and even small bottles that are very easy to squeeze. The things they think of nowadays!
