Surprising Features On Common Things We Never Knew About


As we move through the motions of our day to day lives, we often miss tiny details that can actually make our lives easier. When you go into your home, you will find plenty of items that we all know how to use...or so we thought! As it turns out, all of us have been using some of these everyday items incorrectly. Don't blame yourself though, the people who invented this stuff failed to tell us about it! But fear not, we're here with some amazing tips for making your life 150% easier by using these hidden features on items that you probably use all the time.

1. Peeling An Orange Doesn't Have To Be Hard And Messy

Sometimes peeling oranges can be so messy. When you try to dig your fingers into the peel the juice sprays everywhere, and you are left with a sticky mess. However, there is an easier way to peel any type of citrus fruit, from oranges to clementines, without making a mess. 

Peeling An Orange Doesn't Have To Be Hard And Messy

Cut off the top and bottom of the peel, then cut its side, and it should unroll into a clean line of orange segments. This is perfect to do for your children's lunches, so they don't struggle to peel their oranges at school. We remember the days of struggling to peel tangerines in the school cafeteria; if only we had known this trick. 


2. The Right Way To Heat Things In The Microwave

When you heat up a container of leftovers in the microwave, do you ever feel like some parts are cold while others are boiling hot? If you put the food in a pile on a plate or leave it in the container, the heat won't be distributed evenly. Therefore, you should try this trick next time you reheat something.

When you put the food on the plate, create a small hole in the middle, so everything reheats evenly. Now your food will all be the same temperature, and you won't have to worry about putting it back in the microwave multiple times. 


3. Every Beauty Product Has An Expiration Date On The Bottom

When you get new beauty products, you probably aren't looking at the bottom of the packaging to decipher all those symbols. However, those small symbols can tell you when it's time to throw the product away or how long you have to use it. 


Every Beauty Product Has An Expiration Date On The Bottom

On almost every beauty product, there is a container with a small "6M," "12M," or "24M," depending on the product. It indicated how long you have after opening it to use the product before it expires. We should all check our products in case we have some expired things lying around.
