Tooth Paste.

I miss you blog world.. You've been good to me for like 3 years now and I feel as if I'm neglecting you lately. I promise that soon I will be back to being committed. I promise that I will stop being lazy. I know I've been working a lot more outside lately, and therefore haven't been able to blog at work, but that's just me making excuses... I know I could blog from home. *sigh*

I would like to say that I am mad at the Crest Company. I have been buying Crest toothpaste for a long time because I like the taste, but mostly because I like the twist off cap that Crest uses.

Last time I bought toothpaste however, I got home and opened it, and there was one of those awful attached bendy flip lids.

I realize this type is better for most people because you can't lose it and it's easier to manipulate.

But here's the thing: It's nasty.

After 2 weeks of use, it gets all sticky and full of toothpaste. You have to take the time to clean it off, or else next time it will be stuck shut from built up toothpaste. Ew.

I swear to you that this is the main reason why I have been buying Crest for years. Now, it appears, I'm going to have to go with another brand. One that offers twist off caps.. One that won't nasty up my life.

I feel exactly the same way. I suggest Crest's liquid gel line. Yes, it has a flip top, but the design is much better and does not cause the type of mess you're referring to.

Check it out:

I should give that a try. I use the cinnamon rush stuff. I love it. But i haven't tried the liquid gel variety

You can still unscrew the flippy lid, though, can't you?t
