    The stripes aren't added until you squeeze it!

    lol This is a funny thread. Tricksy little stripes. The stripes with the glitter in them make me happy, but I haven't actually used toothpaste like that since I was a kid.

    Well, I understand how they get them in there, but no matter how much you squeeze the tube around, the toothpaste is still stripey when it comes out. I wonder if we could find out how it works by making a see-through toothpaste tube...

    Yay! Something I know the answer to!
    Basically, the coloured stripes occupy the sides and wall of the toothpaste tube cavity, and the white paste is added in the rest of the tube, coming out through a centralised nozzle inside, whereas the stripes of colour(s) come out through the side.
    ................................ .|| central nozzle of white

    I hope that diagram makes sense!

    i brush twice a day ,

    Dentists recommend you take at least two minutes to clean teeth thoroughly. Supervise your children brushing twice a day and help teach them to brush correctly:

    Use round circular movements.
    Start with the lower jaw and work your way around the other teeth, including the back of the molars, then repeat for the inner area of the teeth.
    Brush the biting surfaces of teeth with a straight-across movement.
    Be careful not to brush too hard, as you can damage teeth enamel and cause gums to recede.
