Well Balasri. do u know that when we think that the toothpaste is over it is not so. If you would cut open the tube you would find adequate paste inside it to last at least 2 days for a family of 3. My mother do this everytime the paste is over. This reduces the wastage. This trick works with everything that comes in a tube.

always buy more than one tube of tooth paste when you go to the store that way you will always have a back up plan. lol

The question is about finding at the last minute no paste left or back ups.

Oooh, salt. I have never heard about that. I will try it next time my toothpaste has run out. But I probably won't face that problem because I always have two or three tubes in my house.

I would cut the tube open and scrape enough out to use it. Then I would get my coupons and go to the stor and buy more. That is one thing I usually have enough of because I stock up when it is on sale and I have coupons or rebates for it.
