Don't take your eyes off them, they bite.

I know what the problem is. I hate the waste of what is not squeezed out. I hate waste of any kind. I really need to get over it.

Well, the pie is finally in the oven. Just have to wait until it is halfway done for the second egg wash. With what pie crust was left over, I cut out tiny Christmas trees and placed them around the edge.

All you need to do is run a bench scraper down the bag while it's on a flat surface, you'll be amazed how well that works!

I have had mine since the 80's. When I am cleaning my counters and there is something stuck that a wet sponge just won't work, I grab my bench scraper. Cleans the counter right down to the bare. Although I have rubber spatulas, I want to get a rounded edge hand held bowl scraper. Those really clean the bowl right down to clean.

I use my metal one for squeezing the last out of the toothpaste.

Now this is a great idea! I love my bench scraper, but would never have thought to use it on toothpaste!

I just drag the tube over the edge of the vanity top. Same principle, no tools required.
