This is a fairly common problem for most of us who use shave cream tubes (or any other tube product). The inner screw thread on the cap breaks off the lid and gets stuck to the tube. If you don't have any spare caps then the only option is to squeeze out the entire tube into another container. Remember, shaving cream left uncapped will dry out.
Here are two tips to help stop this:
- Always clean the screw thread of your tube before putting the lid back on. This stops the cap from becoming stuck to any shave cream that has dried around the top of the tube
- Rub some Vaseline (petroleum jelly) around the top of shave cream tubes before closing them. This stops the cap and the tube from becoming fixed together.
