It seems like the toothpaste container technology has been at a standstill since the mid 1800s (just a guess). Why don't they invent better ways of dispensing toothpaste so that the above doesn't happen? The last 20% or so of the tube is spent squeezing different parts of the tube to avoid wasting any toothpaste. And it seems to last like that forever. We have electric and sonic toothbrushes now that charge on contact. Seems like the toothpaste industry needs to play catchup.
