15 Hidden Design Features On Stuff You Use Every Day.

Intro

There are a number of features on many household objects we see and use every day and we never knew about them, as they cleverly blended into the items and we never really notice them.

#1 The Life-Saving Hole

Despite popular opinion, the hole in the cap is not actually placed there to keep your pen from drying out. The hole is there for a very important reason. It’s there so there’s a lower risk of suffocation if a small child ends up swallowing the cap.

#2 The Hole on the Handles of Pots And Pans

Have you ever noticed that all of your pots have mysterious holes at the end of the handle? Well, there’s a reason for that! Not only can you hang them up, but you can also use it to hold that messy wooden spoon while you’re cooking!

#3 Plastic Liners Under Bottle Caps

Did you know that those little discs under the lids of plastic bottles are actually there to stop your soda from going flat? The disc maintains the liquid and carbonation.

#4 Treatments With Spikes

You may have noticed that some lids on containers have little spikes inside of them. This is so you can get through the pesky protective foil easier.

#5 Bumps on the ‘F’ and ‘J’ Keys

Have you ever noticed those bumps on the F and J key of your keyboard? Well, here’s the reason: In 10-finger typing, these bumps indicate where your index fingers rest and help you find your way back to the home position without having to glance down.
