Did you ever notice perforations on the ends of your tinfoil and plastic wrapper boxes? I didn't until I saw it on the Internets. And then I checked the products in my pantry just to make sure. There they were: perforations to pop in to keep the rolls from flying out of their respective boxes. Whoa.
This edification came via a roundup on Awesome Daily Stuff, entitled 18 Everyday Products You've Been Using Wrong. Most of which are food-related. Like how tic tac containers are outfitted with a built-in way to get just ONE tic tac out at a time.
Or that the holes in soda can tabs are really meant to hold straws. (This one seems a bit serendipitous to me. So if a soda can manufacturer is out there who can confirm it, I'd be mighty obliged.)
Or how to hold/serve juice boxes so the liquid doesn't squirt out. You fold out the 'ears' and serve it as a pouch, holding it at the top.
