The other day when I was getting ready for work, I noticed a bright blue piece of plastic attached to our Osmond Family-sized tube of tooth paste. Being a married man with two teenage daughters, I assumed that once again, the sanctity of my manly domain was being invaded by some sort of frivolous hair widget.
Oh well, just something else to add to the usual assortment of hair straighteners, blow dryers, medieval torture device eyelash curlers, broken-point mascara pencils and the stray wrapped tampons that I must push aside before I can attempt the manly pursuit of shaving...jeez! Who's castle is this anyway?
Anyway, I reached for the tooth paste with both hands (industrial-sized tube remember?) and noticed the brightly-colored piece of plastic affixed to the tube was not a hair widget, grooming tool, iPod accessory or any such thing. It appeared to have a real tooth paste-specific purpose.
But wait there's more....
* It may be the simplest tool ever invented by man after the pointed stick
* It works like a charm
* It retails for about three bucks
* It probably cost a dime to make
* It's a Donny Deutsch Big Idea
* Why didn't I think of this?
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Squeezit!
Thanks to Squeezit, the Ventriello family is getting every drop of fluoride and whitening goodness out of each tube of tooth paste and disposing of perfectly flat tubes that kinda look like road kill on the Garden State Parkway...Exit 91 if you must know.
Now if somebody would just invent a Roomba type device that scoops up stray wrapped tampons and puts them back in the box and under the sink where they belong...
