The dispenser automatically squeezes the right amount of toothpaste directly onto a brush, preventing any wastage or mess. 

‘We pretty much had the same problem, then we got this and it changed our lives,’ one mum wrote in a Facebook. 

Another suggested: ‘Get a toothpaste dispenser. We recently got one, but before that our toothpastes was always messy.’ 

Other mums said there are cheaper alternatives on Amazon, including a $16.50 toothpaste dispenser which can dispense a small amount of toothpaste for kids or a larger amount for adults.
