Kraft tubes: large
These cardboard tubes are made with oil-resistant paper. Depending on the recipe, they can be hard to push up. Warm the tube for a second or two in a microwave each time you need to push the contents up.
If you push too hard, some tubes will come apart. Please be warned!
They work well with recipes with oils only, but once you add powders, as with deodorants, pushing them up can be frustrating, often impossible. The tube will need to be heated a little to push the deodorant up.
They hold 85g of product and are a push-up tube.
(The weight the tube holds varies with the product used.)
Dimensions: 110mm x 43mm dia with the cap on; 95mm x 43mm dia with the cap off.
