10 Hidden Details From Things We See Every Day

Sometimes, we are so used to the objects that surround us that we don’t even consider the processes required for using them. This way, some important details might go unnoticed. But if you start paying close attention to those things, you might find some really cool items with purposes that you wouldn’t even have guessed were there all along.

1. The hole in the sink helps the water drain faster, and it also prevents it from overflowing if we forget to shut off the faucet.

2. If the blue bristles on your toothbrush are starting to fade, it’s a sign to change the brush.

3. The small black dot next to the camera on the iPhone is actually an additional microphone that serves as noise suppression and ensures better quality conversations.

4. The side holes in the bottom of Converse sneakers are also lace holes, and you can loop your laces through them.

5. The removable part at the end of the handle of a utility knife is for removing the dull part of the blade, revealing a sharp one.

6. The holes on the lollipop stick are there so a little of the melted caramel can go inside the stick, preventing the candy from falling off.

7. There is an additional section at the bottom of most shopping carts. You can use it to attach a shopping basket and have some extra space.

8. Bath foam also helps keep the water warm. As it consists of thousands of air bubbles, it forms an insulating layer that prevents the heat from escaping.

9. You can remove the smell of onions and garlic on your hands by rubbing them on stainless steel, like pots, pans, or baking trays.

10. The 2 zippers on your backpack are there so you can lock them together and prevent them from opening up and losing any of your things.

Do you know any secrets about everyday objects that you were mesmerized by? What are they? We would love to know in the comments.
