When toothpaste is outlawed…

November 30, 2007 9:18 am by brian

So I’m going to be traveling to visit my family in Nevada around X-Mas. The biggest thing that annoys me about the post 9/11 world we live in: toothpaste.

So I admit it. After years of dealing with Tom’s of Maine (and similar brands after ToM was bought out by Colgate, i still have a stash of ‘New old stock’. Good thing toothpaste doesn’t go bad… I hope) I’ve gotten to like chalky, mint flavor, hippy toothpaste. The big bumout? I can only buy my preferred brand in 8oz tubes. This far exceeds the Transportation Security Administration’s “3-1-1” rule. What am I to do? I can always buy a tube when I get out there, assuming there is some place in rural Nevada which caters to the hippy in us all. Or I could work a little DIY magic…

Materials:

  • Big tube of toothpaste
  • Little tube(s) of toothpaste
  • Extra cap for the big tube
  • Drill
  • Drillbit

Step 1

Gather your materials and drill a hole in the extra cap.

Step 2

Put the extra cap on the small tube backwards. Then screw this contraption onto the big tube.

Step 3

Gently squeeze the big tube while tightly holding the small tube against the larger. This will keep you from making a mess.

Step 4

Wash the caps and cleanup, you’re done! Toothpaste tubes which conform to the 3-1-1 rule.
