| Home | Every Last Drop

The Model 401 Heavy Duty Tube-Wringer sat at the top of my wish list for months and months.

Why? Well, because we are the type of people who will cut open an tube and scrape out every last drop of something before binning it. And yes, I have a peculiar attraction to those ziggy-zaggy metal tubes that you sometimes find in well curated little shops.

Hiro bought us one of these nifty tube-wringers before Christmas. We got a bit addicted to it as you can see. We then gave it away to our friend who was visiting from Japan. He's a dentist (they have loads tubes no?) so naturally he NEEDED it. Last weekend , we bought a replacement and we are happily wringing every tube in sight once more. it works best with metal tubes and great with some of the thinner plastic ones, less good on the thicker plastic tubes.

The Model 401 Heavy Duty Tube-Wringer is an all metal construction with steel handle and aluminium rollers. The manufacturers, Gill Mechanical Company claim that the device gets 30% more out of each tube. While I cannot vouch for that, I can say it does help us get more out of every tube.

Funnily, every sales assistant we spoke to who's come across this contraception, seems to have taken one home and also developed a wringing fever of their own. If you fancy getting hold of one of your own, enquire with  J. Glinert for availability.

  1. It is a source of eternal frustration for me that I can never get the last of the toothpaste out of the tube - but now I can! This is utterly brilliant Yasumi, thank-you for sharing :)

  2. Oh what, whoa, this is genius! I need to get my hands on one of these wrinkle badboys, STAT!

  3. Holy crap, I need one of these!! I know I would become addicted to using it for sure. We cut the tubes open to get the last bits out, so this would be great!! Wooop!

  4. awesome. i have a few metal tubes and oh the creative ways we tried to wring them! this is perfect, especially on some products that were a bit pricey, i don't like to waste them!

  5. Oh my gosh-- this post made me laugh! Isn't it funny the things we obsess over? I love it-- and now I totally want one myself!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note, they are the stuff that keeps us going.
