We've looked long and hard to find a multi-purpose mini reusable container. Perfect for use anywhere you need to transport a small amount of liquid, GoToobs are a smart way to eliminate single-serve toiletries when you're traveling or packets of condiments when dining out. Silicone construction and no-drip top make it easy (and mess-free) to dispense whatever you're carrying. This set of 3 makes a perfect travel or picnic kit.

Design and Functionality Instead of using all those plastic shampoo and soap containers at the hotel, travel smart with humangear's GoToobs. They're also perfect for storing other liquid items, including condiments like hot sauce or salad dressing. Unlike other small travel containers, the GoToob is made of soft, strong and squeezable silicone, so it's easy to get the contents out. Plus, its large opening is easy to fill and a no-drip valve keeps the cap (and the contents of your bag) clean! A convenient ID window makes it easy to temporarily label the tube's contents. The GoToob is winner of the 2009 Travel Goods Show Buzz Award. (Note: the Large GoToob does not have a suction cup like the 2 oz Medium singles.)
Sustainability Spare those single-use toiletry and condiment packages from the landfill. GoToobs allow you to conveniently bring small portions of liquids without a hassle, saving money and natural resources.
Materials Made of 100% BPA-free, FDA-approved silicone and #5 polypropylene

Product Name and Number
GoToob 3-pack Large (3floz, 88ml) Clear/Green/Blue (HG0187)
Well, do I have egg on MY face! What I just received is ONE 2 oz. bottle - NOT a 3-pk as I'd expected, thus the pricing. This little baby had better live up to the other reviews because the value-vs-functionality verdict is still out, as far as I'm concerned. Stay tuned... Thank you.
I am not reviewing this product, per se, as I have not had the opportunity of using it, yet. However, I am a bit mystified by the jump in price from the 2 oz size to the 3 oz size. What's up with that? I would expect the 3 oz size to be $10 or even $12 for the set of three, but $26? That's triple the 2 oz size and not consistent with the small-to-medium size price progression. I'm sad about that and will probably get the 2oz size instead of the 3 oz size that I want because of the price difference. Thus I'm rating 'value' low until I receive and use the product. Maybe the product itself will change my mind so stay tuned. :D
I forgot #5! I use them on our boat for dish washing soap, hand soap, condiments, etc. because they are much less apt to fly around the galley, head or salon when we hit rough seas. Even if they fall over, doubtful as their center of gravity is so low, they don't leak!!!
Here's the essential selling point for me: these bottles do. not. leak. Boom, worth my twenty bucks.
I've had too many incidents where an attempt at packing my own shampoo ends up smeared all over my other toiletries because I used a crappy drugstore tube.
GoToob let me carry some gloriously multipurpose Dr. Bronner's on a trip this weekend with no spills.
My only criticism is that the liquid in the bottle comes out in a pressurized stream - meaning, it's hard to get just a tiny bit of soap if that's what you need. I worked around this by unscrewing the cap and pouring what I needed out, however, so I still love GoToob.
Well! This is second time I bought these gotoobs because my sister took my first set! They are very handy and keep the liquids inside from leaking! The trick is to make sure the lip of the container is very very clean - no smears!! before you screw the cap on. If there is ANYTHING like dressing or oil on the lip of the container, it will not seal tight and you will end up with a big mess later!
Also need to mention that humangear and reuseit customer service is OUT OF THIS WORLD AWESOME. They both responded super quick to my complaint that one of my caps got moldy (freak accident - do NOT squeeze the gotoob with the cap still closed - it will cause the liquid to work its way into the crevice of the cap and MOLD will happen!) And humangear sent out 3!! new caps AND a new mid-sized gotoob in pink just to say "sorry!" WHAAAAAAT!!! It was the most amazing thing to happen to me in customer service! PLUS A HAND WRITTEN NOTE WAS INCLUDED IN MY PACKAGE!!!!
Therefore, humangear and reuseit has earned a customer for life in me. Everything I buy from now on (gifts, etc) will be coming from humangear and reuseit first. This is how outstanding their customer service is. THANK YOU SO MUCH REUSEIT and HUMANGEAR!!!
Look, I love reuseit and humangear so much I even took the time to write a thoughtful review! I NEVER DO THIS.
I bought these b/c I was tired of putting disposable yogurt tubes in my kids lunches (and my kids don't like the hassle of a spoon and small container for regular yogurt -- not sure why...). I fill them every day with kefir now. The components are easy to take apart and re-assemble for cleaning, and the wide mouth is easy to pour into. The kids like to just squeeze/suck the yogurt out, and we've had no problems with seepage or mess.
These are just the best! I can transfer any lotion, shampoo, conditioner, into a handy squeeze container! I love the convenience for travel and the gym - no lugging large bottles or leaky "travel" bottles. No one should be without them!!!
I was sold at "large mouth for easy refilling." It also has a collar around the opening that you can adjust to tell the contents. My mom has used the same one for her travel toothpaste for years, and she travels tons, so it's obviously very durable.
This is one purchase I have made recently that was worth every penny. Made of excellent material, and looks as if it will last for years. I am so very happy and pleased with these gotoobs. It's just what I needed to carry my condiments in for my lunch bag.
My son uses a ton of ketchup, and this is so much easier and cleaner (and less wasteful) than those aweful single-use ketchup pouches. I just toss it in his lunch box when I pack something he eats with ketchup, and he brings home the rest. It's good for lots of other uses too!
These toobs may be good for items you may want to take to lunch. But if you put something like shampoo/soap in them for travel (which they are marketed for too) they will often start to mold around the edge. I returned thinking it was a design flaw, but it happened again. I'm not sure why, if it is the type of plastic or the shape of the opening, but it happened numerous times and not after an extended period of time.
We just got back from a fishing trip in Canada. I filled ours with our shampoos and shower gel. They're just the right size, and fit just right in your palm....especially when your hands are wet and soapy. The 3oz are just about right for a one week trip (in fact, we each had more shampoo than we needed). I also love that since the material is very flexible, it will be much easier to get that last bit of whatever is in them, as opposed to a rigid plastic container.
I bought these Go Toobs for an international trip from the US to India. They held up well in my checked luggage without leaking at all. They held more than enough shampoo, conditioner, and face wash for a week-long trip. I used them for the gym after my trip, and I loved how easy it was to get every last drop out. Way different from my previous travel-size bottles. They are super easy to fill, and I like that you can pick a type of content by turning the cap when you're filling the bottle.
I ordered these specifically for carrying salad dressing with me in my lunch bag. With thicker dressings, it works perfectly. Vinegar occasionally leaks into the cap, but it never seems to leak out of the cap so it doesn't bother me. Each of these are the perfect size for a week's worth of dressing. Highly recommend!
I bought these recently after my son, 5, had a disaster with the ranch dressing I had packed for his lunchbox in a small bowl. After bringing him a clean set of clothes I began looking for a cleaner, easier solution for gooey items & this hit the mark perfectly. Now he has complete control over his ranch & they have also been a hit for yogurt & pudding! I see us using these a lot over the summer camping season.
Not one to purchase small "single-use" type products... I came here (to reusablebags.com) to find a solution to purchasing a bunch of 3 oz individual containers for traveling with an unchecked bag. I was happy to find these... they were very easy to fill and I really LOVE the ability to twist the cap and change the "label". Also, being that they're made from silicone... the shampoo/conditioner doesn't stick to the inside... so I'm able to get out all the product that I put in. AND most importantly.... I made it through the TSA "check point" with no hassles :)
I was really surprised to feel how pliable GoToobs were when I first opened the package--makes it SO easy to get every last drop out of whatever you put in there! The ID windows are a little hard to read unless you put it right up to your face, but are useful nonetheless. It seemed like a lot of money to drop for three little plastic tubes (over $30 after tax and shipping), but have you ever tried to travel on the CTA with salad dressing in your work bag, just praying the cap doesn't loosen on your 40 minute commute? It's not fun, and it's usually messy....that is, until I got GoToobs. The no-drip feature on GoToobs is amazing and really works! In the end, once I saw how easy they were to use/clean, and once I realized how much less I'd be using single-use condiment packages I was a pretty happy camper. Worth every penny!
Just tried out the humangeer reusable travel containers. I had no trouble in getting them through security or leaking issues, or using them. They were easy to fill and easy to use. I don't know about cleaning yet. They definitely make it easier for me to use the soap and lotion I like, without having to rely on hotel soaps, or check my bags.
I buy huge bottles of lotions, face wash, and shampoos (thrifty but also more sustainable) so instead of having to buy travel sized sundries for my purse or when I'm traveling I just transfer some into these. They don't leak, they have nice design, and a nice feel.
Our 8 year old loves salads, and so the GoToob is the perfect way to provide him a tasty dressing to squeeze over his school lunch greens. The container seems tough and yet very pliable. Highly recommend this item for liquids of varied viscosity.
Wow, what a product. I use the gotoob to transport hot sauce and sometime salad dressing with me for lunch usage... I could not ask for more. It's easy to clean, it forces liquid out quickly, and haven't had any spillage accidents.
