2020 has been a year of change for many of us. Businesses have changed how they operate, artists have had to take their work and exhibitions online, and individuals have altered how they work pretty drastically. We have been fortunate here at Tube-Wringer. Our products have remained the same, and our family has been able to continue to manufacture and ship Tube-Wringers to companies and individuals worldwide.

We have made some changes to our website during this year, and we’ve produced more videos and articles than ever with ideas on how you can use a Tube-Wringer at home to reduce waste in your everyday life. We’ve also looked at how scrapbookers, crafters, jewelers, and artists can all have fun with a Tube-Wringer.

As we head into 2021, we wanted to take a moment to look back at some of the articles, videos, and webpages of which we are particularly proud. Some of the content below is interesting and informative, some is fun, and some makes us laugh. We hope this compilation of content is interesting and gives you some ideas for the new year.

All About the Tube-Wringer

It seems like ages since we updated our “About” page, but it wasn’t too long ago that we decided to share the Tube-Wringer story and how our family got involved in creating this handy tool.

Crafting with the Tube-Wringer

This year saw the beginning of our crafting series of blog posts. With so many people staying at home, learning from home, and generally not getting the interaction we are used to, many of us have turned to crafting. That began with literally everyone making sourdough back in March and April of 2020 and has continued through the winter with just about any at-home craft we can think of.

Here are three of the crafts that we came up with during 2020:

Paper crimping craft for scrapbooking or decoration

Adding fun windows in a Halloween cookie house or a gingerbread house

Creating a fun looking snowflake 

Tube-Wringer Videos

We made the most demonstration videos ever in 2020. While most demonstrate the function for which a Tube-Wringer was designed, some are a bit fun and cheeky – and some really speak to the time in which we are living. Here are our top picks for 2020 Tube-Wringer Videos.

This video demonstrates how to use a Tube-Wringer to wring out a wet cloth. It’s one of our most popular videos on Instagram – and it was made by customer request.

Getting every drop of lotion out of a spent tube is more vital than ever as we hand sanitize and wash our hands about a hundred times a day. That might be why this video of salvaging a tube of hand cream was so popular.

This video of squeezing out every drop from a sample pack was another customer request. It may not be glamorous, but hey, reducing waste and getting all of the lotion we possibly can is something we can all get behind.

The classic TubeWringer use is getting every drop out of hard-to-squeeze paint tubes. This is our most popular demonstration video and it shows how easy it is to top off rigid paint tubes.

This video of squeezing sour cream out of a tube is a little odd, but again, it was a customer request. And hey, who doesn’t like getting every drop of sour cream onto their nachos?

We use our at-home Tube-Wringer to squeeze icing out of the package every year.  It’s such a time saver, so we made a video about it!

One of our most popular crafting videos is the snowflake craft – and hey, it’s not too late to make a snowflake! Winter lasts for another couple of months.

There are more demonstration videos on our YouTube channel and on Instagram. If you’d like to watch some satisfying videos of crimping and tube squeezing, just head on over to those spots.

And, if you’d like to make your own video or experience the satisfaction of getting every last drop out of an “empty” tube, be sure to get your own Tube-Wringer! You can click here to shop.
