It is hard to believe, but yes, most of us have spent a lifetime by using some daily need items in a wrong way. Our lives could have been simplified if we knew the right way of using these products. Well, it’s better late than never. So, let’s find out the list of such products and turn the wrong ways to right ones.
1. Hole on Soda Can Tabs
We have always been thinking that the large hole on the soda can tabs is of no use. But, hold on, it is designed to put the straw in the can to let you enjoy the carbonated drink without the straw dancing in the fizz.
2. Peanut Butter
We have been storing natural peanut butter in a wrong way. To enjoy evenly distributed oil in peanut butter, always store it upside down.
3. Drinking from a Juice Box
The flaps of the juice boxes are folded on the sides. Well, we thought it’s just a design but the fact is that it is for kids to enjoy juice without spilling it. If you pull the sides and hold the juice box from flaps, chances of spillage are very less.
We apply toothpaste all over the brush area of the toothbrush, probably because that’s what we see in the advertisements. However, only a pea-sized amount of toothpaste is required to effectively brush your teeth.
5. Tic-Tac Dispenser
Some might believe that there is a problem in tic-tac dispenser because either you get none or you get too many. However, the fact is that we were unable to understand how to dispense it properly. There is a tiny crevice in tic tac box lid that holds one tic tac at a time.
6. Hole in the Handle of Frying Pan
We have believed that the hole in the frying pan is for hanging it on the wall. However, it is actually a spoon holder. You can rest the spoon with which you are cooking in that hole.
7. The Two Sides of an Eraser
All through the school days, we have been thinking that the red side of the eraser is to rub out pencil marks while the blue side is for ink. But hell yes, we were wrong! Both the sides can only remove pencil marks, but the red part is to use on thin paper while the blue part is for heavier paper.
8. Lid of Soft Drinks
Have you ever noticed that there are bumps in the lid of the soft drink glass? And, if you place your soft drink disposable glass on the lid, it will fit perfectly. It’s not just a coincidence, but it’s designed to serve double purposes – Lid & Coaster.
9. Small Pocket in Jeans
We have been told that the small pocket in jeans is for keeping coins. Again, that’s not true. It was actually introduced by Levis to securely hold pocket watches.
Do not apply Band-aid as it is because it won’t fit your finger perfectly. You need to cut the band-aid from the edges to the gauze – lengthwise from both the sides. Now, put your injured finger and wrap the wings around your finger for a flawless fit.
