Last week I attended the annual Travel Goods Show in Las Vegas, where manufacturers showcase all the latest luggage and travel accessories to retailers. While I’ll have a more comprehensive report for you in the coming weeks, I just had to spread the word about my favorite discovery – Toothpaste 2 Go. Brilliant in its simplicity (why didn’t something think of this before?), Toothpaste 2 Go is a universal adapter that helps you easily transfer toothpaste from a regular size tube to a reusable one-ounce travel-size tube. Simply screw the adapter onto your favorite toothpaste, screw the other end to the travel tube and squeeze.
Inventor Melissa Cleaver shows you how to use Toothpaste 2 Go.
All components are dishwasher safe, so you can take the tube, stick it on a spoke on the top rack and clean it out every so often. The device was created by a Houston couple who tired of sometimes spending more for those tiny travel-size tubes (markup is about 250%) than a regular 6-ounce or larger tube of toothpaste. And for those of us you favor a specific brand that doesn’t come in travel-size, you can now still bring it along on your travels. For $6.99 you get the Toothpaste 2 Go universal adapter and one reusable tube. Want everyone in the family to have their own tube? A set of three tubes is $3.99. Shipping is normally extra for orders under $15, but use the special promo code TGASHIP and you get FREE shipping no matter the size of your order.
