Travel Tip: Create Your Own Travel Toothpaste

These days a travel-size toothpaste will cost you just about the same as a full tube.  So Holiday Travel Tip #5 is for those who don’t want to waste money on tiny tubes and those who can’t get their favorite brand in travel size.

Here’s how to create your own travel-size toothpaste…

If you look closely below, you’ll see that the mouth of the travel-size tube is the same size as the mouth on your standard tube.  Simply place the mouths of each open tube against each other so that they meet.  Gently squeeze the large tube of toothpaste until the travel-size tube feels almost full.

Now, BEFORE YOU SEPARATE THE TUBES, release the pressure on the large tube completely, then pull the tubes apart.  You should now have a TSA approved, travel-size tube of your favorite toothpaste for half the price (sometimes a third of the price)…and no mess!
