15+ Easy-To-Miss Things That Will Definitely Change Our Lives For the Better

For many years, humans have invented things that make our lives easier in every way. There are many objects that we use on a daily basis but never notice their true purpose. You might have tried cleaning your shoes with the brushes of an escalator, though that is not what they are designed for, so here we have some interesting facts for you.

47. The seemingly unnecessary button on your jeans

No, we are not talking about the one you use to actually keep your pants in place, but rather the tiny ones that are placed in the corner of the pocket. They are called rivets, and their main purpose is not decorative as most people believe.

They are placed in specific parts of the denim pants that are more prone to tearing due to movement or usage. They were created in the 1870s when a housewife went to a tailor for help because her husband’s work clothes were disintegrating too quickly.

46. The number on the Heinz Ketchup bottle

You might have seen this number and guessed that it had something to do with advertising or part of the label of the company. However, it was designed to mark the spot where you should tap in order to get ketchup onto your food.

 A spokesperson for Heinz said, “To release ketchup faster from a glass bottle, here is a little secret from Heinz. The sweet spot to tap on the Heinz bottle is the embossed 57 on the neck. All you need to do is apply a firm tap where the bottle narrows and the ketchup will come out easier.”
