Does this really work better?

I read everything... Have you ever read the toothpaste tube? It says something like "For best results, squeeze tube from the bottom." Does that really get your teeth whiter??? Does that mean that if I squeeze the tube in the middle I will have more cavaties??? I just thought that was sooo funny. Any other funny labels you know about???

Did you also read the warning about not ingesting or swallowing the toothpaste. It also says if more than what was used for brushing teeth is swallowed to call poison control. The Floride is poison if ingested. Toothpaste seems so innocent, we put it in our mouths everyday. Some people do not know that it can be harmful if ingested.

Wow, I never read that. I don't know that my toothpaste has that warning though. Now I use Melaleuca and they're big on all-natural ingredients. I'll have to check that out. Thanks.

mfrancq - why are you no longer with Melaleuca? We've just started with it recently and really like it. Is there something we need to be worried about?

i dont' think that's what that means. i think it means to get the most toothpaste out of the tube squeeze from the bottom. it doesnt mean you'll have more cavities or anything like that. lol...

I know, I just think it's funny that it doesn't really say it that way. You could interpret it to mean that it works better if you do it that way. I always thought it was funny :)

Hey be careful, it could just be hot! - Hey be careful, it could just be hot!
I think their intentions were meant for the best results of the tube, not the toothpaste. They really should label it better. That is funny. I just think it's funny that on the popcorn bags it says, "Careful contents could be hot." Well, why else would I put it in the microwave? I'm not trying to freeze the darn bag!!

Yeah, that's a good one too! Reminds me of the coffee notices now too... I guess no one realized coffee was hot until that lady burned herself on it from McDonald's or whatever it was...

It probaly means that if you squeeze from the bottom you will get more toothpaste out of the tube and you'll get you moneys worth! but it is funny because labels never explain what they are saying!

I know that's what it was meant to mean, but I just thought it was funny taken in another context. Thanks for posting :)
