Look at the objects you see around you. We as humans have done all that we can to make our lives better or less stressful by inventing and innovating. Our everyday tasks have somehow mellowed down because of these inventions. But, contrary to what you think, we are here to tell you that you might not be making use of the full potential of these things. Here is a list of things that you use everyday, that you might not be using correctly…


Close up of a person's hand holding a toothbrush with toothpaste on it

How you’re using it: Too much in the wrong places!

On this list, you will find that there are many things that have multi purposes. You may not have guessed it but toothpaste also has various purposes. Toothpaste is helpful in cleaning your car’s headlights or getting that persistent onion/garlic smell off your hands when you spend time cooking. If you are skeptical, then try it for yourself because it really works.

Dental Floss

How you’re using it: Knotting it around your hands.

Dental flossing is a necessity for the health and well-being of your teeth. If you just tie a small amount in a loop rather than wrapping several rounds on your fingers, you will get the tension you need, while saving a bunch of the stuff. Dental floss is actually very useful for cutting soft foods that would crumble if you were to use a regular knife.


Beer in multiple glasses

How you’re using it: Just drinking it.

There are a lot of things you can do with beer. Beer is not just a drink. It is capable of doing anything! It really is a multipurpose liquid. Do not just limit its use just as a drink. Beer can actually be used to marinate meat, to help support the dark-colored spots of grass in your garden, or as a gold or wooden furniture finishing. This drink really is wondrous.


Coca cola can and lawn mower

How you’re using it: Drinking it.

Coca-Cola is something much more than a sugary or energizing drink. It is capable of several other uses that you may not be aware of: it can be used for defrosting of a solidified windshield, can help release a corroded jolt, refrain an asthma assault, heal a jellyfish sting, purify the battery terminals in your auto, cleanse oily pots, and dish, and removal of blood stains.

Well, we are here to tell you that instead of tapping the bottom, when you tap the middle area, the sauce comes out easier!

That Tiny Hole On Elevator Doors

How you’re using it: Have no clue

If you have even been inside an elevator, you will see that there is always a tiny hole on one side of the door. Have you ever wondered what the use of these holes is?
