Things you may have not known

Some times emails are most interesting . Here is one I received this morning from my Aunt's brother in law, Jack that is worth reading!


You've probably been ignoring this feature


Most aluminum foil boxes have press-in tabs that secure the roll in place, so you don't have worry about it flying out every time you rip off a sheet.

You've been dispensing Tic Tacs the hard way.

You know how when you violently shake a container of Tic Tacs into your palm it seems as though you always end up with zero or seven? Avoid that altogether by letting a mint gently glide into the tiny lid crevice



You haven't been using ketchup cups to their full potential.Instead of grabbing multiple cups of ketchup, simply pull apart at the edges for twice the space.



Chinese takeout containers are actually made to fold out into plates.


The containers actually are meant to unfold into a makeshift plate, which you can easily reassemble into a box for storing leftovers.

Greek yogurt containers are meant to be folded in half.





Chances are you’ve been scooping the toppings with your spoon onto the yogurt.


But, have you realized, the topping holder folds over, so you can pour the toppings DIRECTLY ON TOP?

You've probably been placing toilet seat covers in the wrong direction.
The flap is meant to be placed toward the front. This prevents the agony of sitting down on a toilet seat, only to realize you've dragged the cover down into the bowl.


Soda tabs double as straw holders.


Turn the tab around so that it acts as holder that can stop the straw from raising out of the can as the soda fizzes.


You probably don't realize it, but your pots come with built-in spoon rests.

Soft-drink lids can double as coasters.
