Sometimes, even the slightest twisting and turning can be extremely painful.
A new tube of toothpaste resulted in a Eureka! moment. Have you noticed how flip-top caps are both easier and quicker to use?
I discovered that those caps are interchangeable - more often than not, the cap will fit onto a screw-top tube of toothpaste.
So, if you're getting frustrated with a screw-cap, don't flip your lid, flip a top!
