End of the tube.

I squeeze it from the bottom to get it to the top, then i squeeze the top

<p>middle, until it gets thin, then I roll it up.</p>

<p>I use the plastic toothpaste bottle, so I just shake it vigorously and wait for the toothpaste to appear. :)</p>

<p>I squeeze in the middle.&nbsp; When the tube is about 1/2 empty, I flatten it by rolling it along the edge of the countertop.&nbsp; Then I squeeze from the end until it is empty.</p>

<p>Toothpaste is like money in the bank.</p><br />
<p>Easy to get it out, very complicated to put it back in.</p>

<p>i sueeze it from the middle then complain about how messy toothpast is afterwards</p>

<p>end , I wonder how much is waisted in a life time that you cant squeeze out</p>

<p>Start at the middle but them have to press it so the toothpaste moves toward the top so that I can flip it up on it's head as the cap is nice & large and can sit on it's cap saving counter space.&nbsp; I admit I get frustrated when my son won't cap it, the way he squeezes it doesn't matter- if it get dried up from no cap its a bear to work with.</p>

<p>from the middle</p>

<p>I squeeze toothpaste from inside the tube...</p>

<p><b><i>I confess, I squeeze it from the middle, from the top, from the bottom, and then when it gets all funny looking, and you think its empty, I lay it down on the side of the sink and I take my hand and lay it down flat on the tube starting at the very end and I push my hand all the way to the opening of the tube and squeeze out what ever else is in there.&nbsp; Then If I still cant get enough I will&nbsp;take&nbsp;my tooth brush and put the bristles part of it in the opening of the tube and try and scrape out what ever I might get.&nbsp; pathetic huh. </i></b></p><br />

<p>two inches up, three to the right, periodicly moving it three inches up and two inches left.</p>



<p>I like to suck on my tube!!! Eat that Mr Freud!!</p><br />

<p>at the end of the tube. I do not like the sagging &nbsp;middle.</p>

<p>Im not that conscienceious about which end I grab.</p><br />
<p>It doesnt matter where you squeeze it from, it all ends up the same way!!&nbsp; lol</p>

I think i squezze from the middle idk sometimes the botom if were running low of toothpaste.

WTF does it matter anyway --- sheesh.. aren't there more important things to worry about? like.. whether or not the damn toilet paper is rolling out from the top or bottom.. come on people.. PRIORITIES!!!!!

<p>I don't like the middle of the tube cave in..bottoms first for me.</p>

<p>I always squeeze from the end of the tube. makes the most sense. why do without? isnt' the toothpaste at eh end just as good as the beginning? What a silly question.</p>

<p>From the middle always.</p>

<p>why does it matter cause who cares</p>

<p>&nbsp;Oh...ALWAYS from the end. It's just better all around,isn't it? When it comes to the last bit it's easier and less time consuming that doing that squeezing it all along the tube thing that I'm pretty sure annoys the hell out of everyone...</p><br />
<p>Just makes more sense!</p><br />
<p>Sammy Jo Duponte x</p><br />

<p>I squeeze from the bottom. That almost has a provocative tone to it, doesn't it? LOL!</p>

<p>I use a liquid so there's no tube.</p>

<p>Neither - I use a pump toothpaste and a powdered toothpaste!</p>

<p>The end...then I roll it up as it empties...&nbsp;</p>

<p>I squeeze the toothpaste from the end and it BUGS THE CRAP out of me when my family does it from the middle...which they always do!</p>

<p>The end, but the top end near the nozzle, not the bottom end.<br /><br />
<br /><br />
Then&nbsp;I start at the bottom. Sometimes I go for the middle.<br /><br />
<br /><br />
What can I say? I'm erratic </p>

<p>I squeeze from the middle. Once I read that most of women do that. Don't know why I've always been doing it this way </p>

<p>That's a difficult question.</p><br />
<p>I use "Simply White" toothpaste which comes in a tube that always stays "inflated," so, it doesn't matter where you squeeze it.</p>

<p>From the end, then I roll up the empty part to be able to squeeze the tooth paste that remains easier.</p>

<p>Are we really talking about toothepaste!</p><br />

<p>the middle</p>

<p>The end. And yes, it drives me crazy when my son squeezes in the middle. I admit it. I have a toothpaste tube hang up.</p>

<p>OK,, my question is,,,,,,, does any one REALLY CARE??</p>


<p>When it's full, I pull it in the middle to the point that I have to start from the bottom!</p>

<p>I'm lazy...I squeeze wherever I pick up the tube.&nbsp; Then I get to the point where the toothpaste is almost out and push as much up to the top as possible.&nbsp; Sometimes hurting my fingers in the process, but no waste!&nbsp;</p>

<p>The middle...then I squish it from the botom to make it neet...It is silly but then that was the way my drill sgt. taught us to do it....The army teaches you real dumb things....But that is to teach you to follow orders with out thinking...It just could keep some men from losing their lives if you stop and think about it...</p>

<p>depends on if its full or more than half way empty, if its full i squeeze the middle but if its getting low i go from the end</p>


it doesnt matter to me as long i get the tooth paste on my toothbrush.

<p>The middle..drives my hubby crazy! He's an end squeezer! OOPS, I didn't mean that the way it sounded.</p>

Neither I Squeeze the top of the Tube.. :)
