Cut Tube Open Before Throwing Away

If you have hand cream, toothpaste, or any other preparation that comes in a tube, a lot gets left inside after you've squeezed the tube "empty". If you cut the bottom off the tube, you can scoop out an amazing amount of the product that would otherwise have gone to waste. Just keep cutting off more from the bottom as you use what is closest to the cut edge, and you won't have any trouble reaching clear to the cap from the inside. I had some Avon skin cream that yielded about 7 more applications from an empty tube.

I did this just week before last with toothpaste and got another week's worth. You only need a dab of toothpaste anyway, and not the whole brush full like they show on TV commercials just to get you to use it up quicker and buy more. So, you are absolutely right about cutting the tubes open. (10/02/2010)

This is a great tip! I've been doing this for awhile and am amazed at what you can get out of a tube when it looks like it's empty! (10/03/2010)
