There are things that we use each day and really have no idea what the capabilities of those items are in their entireties. YouTube personality, Wengie, understands this theory quite well and made one of her incredible videos depicting how little we know about some of the most common objects in the world. The beauty blogger was intent to show her viewers some crafty things and she did just that, per usual.
There is a symbol on most cosmetics that resembles a can with an open lid. Most have ignored this symbol directly because they believe it is irrelevant or that it has to do with marketing. What it really is, though, is an expiration date for that particular product. Tending to be either six, twelve, or twenty-four months, this symbol is important to recognize and follow.
The Pot Hole
Have you ever noticed the hole that is on every pot or pan handle? Some may believe that this is to hang said pots up, but it is actually to hold the cooking utensil you are using, specifically a wooden spoon. Designed to hold the spoon in place until it is needed again, this hole is useful in more ways than one!
The utensil specifically designed for spaghetti has a nifty hole directly in its center that few recognize as being useful. Some may opt to think that it is to drain water, but it is actually designed to measure out the proper amount of spaghetti, which is one serving. If you are cooking for three people, fill the hole three times.
Blue and White Erasers
According to Wengie, These erasers are half blue and half white. Due to the different colors, people believe that the blue side is for pen ink. It is actually for pencils and the white side is to smooth out the paper afterward.
