Have you ever angry because the tomato ketchup wouldn't out the bottle? Have you ever squeezed and the toothpaste tube but the last bit wouldn’t come out? Have you ever ages trying to scrape the last bits of jam from the sides of the jar? If the answer to these questions is 'yes,' you may happy to know that a solution to your problems is . Scientists have invented a super-slippery surface that can be on the inside of bottles, tubes, jars, tins and other containers. The slippery inside anything will just slide out, like water. Every last drop of things like glue, paint and cosmetics will come out, the container totally empty, and you happier and richer.

Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the company LiquiGlide to create something that would waste and save us money. The technology's co-inventor, Dr David Smith, said every day, millions of litres of ketchup, sauces, paint, gels and creams get to the sides of containers and are away. He said: "The technology has the potential to significantly waste and be a big part of the zero-waste economy." The LiquiGlide website says: "What the wheel was to transportation, LiquiGlide is to liquids - it changes the way liquids ….We want to consumer packaging, reduce waste, and efficiencies. We are to save lives and the world."
