And if you have kids, it can be much worse as they don’t always know how much to squeeze out.

One mum had a genius solution to make things tidier and to make sure her four-year-old daughter doesn’t use too much.

She took the tube of toothpaste and squeeze it into a soap dispenser, before showing her daughter that one pump of the dispenser was the right amount to brush her teeth.

Posting on the Kmart Australia Facebook Group, the woman said: ‘Sick of wasting toothpaste and the kid making a mess? Problem solved.’

Others in the group said they couldn’t wait to try the idea for themselves as they were fed up with the mess their kids made with toothpaste.

One said: ‘This has saved my bathroom! Thank you.’

‘Great idea. I’m going to get onto this one tomorrow,’ someone else said.

And another mum even offered some advice to give more control over the amount pumped out.

She explained that by using a rubber band, you could stop the pump being pushed down as far to make sure kids take just a pea sized amount.

‘If you wrap a rubber band or hair tie around the white part you push down it stops it from going all the way down meaning less toothpaste comes out,’ she said.

‘Tie it around like your your putting your hair up,’ she said.
