Make your own squeeze tube for homemade toothpaste.
I like the idea of homemade toothpaste. What I don’t like is keeping it in a jar and dipping my toothbrush into the jar. Even if I’m the only one using that toothpaste, it just doesn’t seem sanitary to me. Yes, you could buy a refillable toothpaste tube like this one, but it’s easy to make your own. Here’s what you need to do to make your own squeeze tube:
or steal a store-bought empty toothpaste tube. Make sure it’s the kind with a two piece flip-top cap. The only other item that you’ll need is a small zip-lock bag. Use a heavy duty freezer bag, not just a sandwich bag. Trust me, a sandwich bag will not hold up. Don’t ask how I know that.

Cut the cap from the toothpaste container. Just use regular scissors; the tubes cut easily. Give the cap a good cleaning. Now make a small hole in the zip lock bag by cutting a small triangle off of one of the corners. Don’t cut too much; you can always make the hole larger, but you can’t make it smaller. But you knew that.
Now, poke the male part of the cap into the hole, and then screw the female part onto it. Oh, boy, this is not going well. I need to find some new terminology. Let’s just move on.
Fill the bag with your favorite homemade toothpaste, squeeze out any air and seal the bag. Your homemade squeeze tube is ready to use!
