This item has one job and it does it SO WELL. It squeezes the very last possible drop out of the toothpaste tube. I put one in our daughter's bathroom because she has a hard time squeezing the toothpaste with her tiny hands and she loves it. I kept one for myself and gave one to my husband. I also tossed one in our travel tolietry bag to have when we travel. These also work well with lotions, creams and lip balm tubes.
