There are so many things in the world that we use on daily basis. The funny thing is that we assume what their real use is and use it that ways. We have no idea about their parallel other purpose. Here are some examples!

The tiny button on your jeans

There is this tiny button on your jeans! Ever wondered what it is for? They are called rivets and they’re placed on your jeans at areas that are most likely to tear apart from strain or movement.

The holes on the handles

You may have heard about it by now. Those holes out there are to rest your spoons while cooking to avoid the utensils from getting messy.

The little Slot On The Measuring Tape

So why do we need this metal stub at the start of every measuring tape? If you would look at it carefully, you would see that the stub is also serrated on one side. This can be used to mark points without using a pencil. Convenient, right?

The brushes on the sides of escalators

So almost every escalator out there has brushes on the side. Why do they exist? No, they aren't there to polish your shoes. These nylon bristles play with your mind and make you keep your feet away from the escalator’s skirt panels! This avoids all the unwanted mishaps. Its placed there to play with your psyche.


Did you know that you could use your screwdriver as a wrench as well? You can!

That Arrow!

The arrow next to the fuel tank symbol is the gas gauge. Yes, it shows you where your gauge is!

Folded Flapps

Ever saw folded flaps in your juice tetra packs? As it turns out, these flaps are intentionally designed with small hands in mind. The flaps are meant to be folded outward so that a toddler can more easily hang onto their juice box without dropping it. Now that is very interesting, isn't it?
