We all go through from every day using necessities without ever realizing how to use them correctly.
And we’ve become used to it, we are making our lives more difficult. For example, we know for a fact how to properly use dental floss, how to enjoy our delicious tic-tacs, and the purpose of little bubble pockets in a box, or do we?
We share a list of items that we have been using incorrectly all our life.
1. Tape measuring
If you are not an expert in doing some handy work, the tape measure has a tiny slit at the front of its hook, and it’s there for a reason. You can attach a nail or a screw and measure accurately without it moving around or losing its grip.
2. Pots come with a built-in spoon rest to keep your cooking area clean
If you have thought that pots and frying pans are made to be hung up, the holes on their handles serve 2 purposes. To hold your spoon while cooking and to hang the pots in your kitchen.
3. Dental floss should be tied at the edges while flossing to prevent it from sliding off of your fingers
Dental floss is coated with dental wax to penetrate the tiny gaps between your teeth, it is incredibly easy for it to slide off of one of your fingers while flossing. So, to keep it in place without wasting most of it, tie the ends together.
4. Tic-Tac also comes with a built-in pocket to help you eat one at a time
When someone asks you, “Can I have a tic-tac?” and you accidentally pour 3 or 4 in their hand. Well, you don’t know that the tic-tac container comes with a tiny tic-tac pocket when you lift it upside down, one tic-tac falls into the pocket and it prevents the rest of them from falling out.
5. Chinese takeout containers unfold into paper plates
It is the worst feeling to try and eat Chinese food out of those takeout containers, but they are built like that for efficiency. To both ensure that the quantity of the food they place in there is accurate and so that the person eating them can unfold them into a plate later.
