New Tooth-Paste Tubes Are Made of Glass (Oct, 1937)

New Tooth-Paste Tubes Are Made of Glass
Glass containers for tooth paste, recently developed by a German firm as a substitute for conventional metal tubes, have a built-in piston at one end to force the paste out onto the brush. When empty, the containers can be refilled with paste.

    I heard on the radio that because of the Japanese in Malasia Tin was in short supply in the US during WWII.
    Tin was used in toothpaste tubes at the time.
    I suppose Tin was needed for the German war effort as well…. only a few years earlier!

    Where does it get refilled? Do you buy it in larger caulking-gun type cartridges or out of a pump at the drug store?

    And can it do Stripe?

    It’s a weird thing that the toothpaste tube is made with glass. If the toothpaste tube is made with glass, it is very fragile and may cause accident. How weird people’s minds are working before.
