Funday Monday: Ghetto Toothpaste Dispenser

Don't forget to enter my giveaway for some great natural food from Steve's Originals. See Details here. You can enter both here or on my Facebook Page.

The one thing with all this toothpaste making is where to put it. I originally put it in a plastic container, but it didn't fit well in the designated space. So then I put it in a cute jar that promptly got dropped and cracked.

Seeing as we live in a country where it is difficult to buy special items like this, or more likely, I don't know where to look, I tackled the problem head on.

I highjacked an old tube and made it bow to my will.

Meaning, I snipped the end off the tube, washed it, filled it with homemade toothpaste, and clipped the end closed. I've since used various other clips, including an old chip clip, for the same purpose.

Not perfect, but sometimes you do what you've got to do.

Anyone have a better idea? Or at least know of a place to buy reusable toothpaste dispensers?


  1. Could you use travel lotion containers? Maybe the hole wouldn't be big enough, but I am guessing they would have those at HEMA?? I have some extra that I bought in MN this winter, I could send one your way to try out. :-)

    1. Good thought, but they aren't flexible enough. If it's not totally full you can't squeeze the toothpaste out. Thanks, though!
