I like tools.

Some of us are tool-users...

If you think about it, the edge of the vanity counter top that I use is a tool. It just happens to be right there where I brush my teeth so I don't have to go get a different tool to do the job.

I think that this just might be the perfect excuse to have a rolling pin in the bathroom!

I keep my tube of medicine. on my nightstand. When I think I have gotten the very last drop out of it, I get the rolling pin and roll it across the tube on the kitchen counter. I can get a good 10-15 more applications out of it. Then I cut it in half, open each half and get even more. At $105.00 per tube, I make sure I get every last drop. And in the winter I can use two, sometimes three tubes a month. I may not have to pay for it, but that doesn't mean I don't understand the cost.

That's just too logical for me

This from the guy who stores his Kitchenaid above the commode.

I checked out our vanity counter, no sharp edges on which to squeeze the toothpaste. I'm going for the bench scraper. Second in command is the rolling pin.

It's not above the commode. It's in a cabinet across the room.

Bench scrapers and rolling pins would work but you should really look into an old style ringer washer. It's ideal for squeezing the last drop of toothpaste out of any tube.
