In her video, which has been ‘liked’ nearly 500k times, Shannon demonstrates just how messy toothpaste tubes and bathroom sinks can get with everyday kid use.
But with a simple pump jar — which she bought from Ikea, and can be found here on Amazon — those messy tubes are a thing of the past.
Speaking of the past: Shannon’s pump jar idea is really a blast from the past! According to Colgate, the toothpaste that we’re used to was first developed in the 1800’s — and it was originally sold in glass jars! How’s that for full circle?
“Such a game changer in our house! Soooooo much easier!” Shannon wrote in the comments.
Parents everywhere love this toothpaste hack
Thousands of TikTok users are weighing in in Shannon’s comments, praising her hack.
“My 7 yr old sent this to me! Off to Ikea I go,” said one comment.
“Okay this might be one of my favorite hacks yet!!!” said another user.
But some parents expressed concern about ditching the traditional toothpaste tubes.
One user wrote, “That is so smart!!! But what about the fun characters?! My son only likes to brush because of the tube.”
Another commented, “Just imagine having a guest over and they wash their hands with toothpaste and brush their teeth with hand soap!”
But with an overwhelming amount of positive comments, it’s clear most parents are loving this hack that not only cuts down on toothpaste waste, but also time spent cleaning up bathrooms!
