9. The Little Hole In The Side Of A Pen


At a first glance, it might strike you as just a design but it is there for a reason and meant to serve a good purpose.

Without the hole, a pen will be completely airtight and as you write and use the ink, the pressure will fall preventing the ink from flowing to the tip and eventually the pen will cease to write although there is still ink in it.

On highlands or in planes where the pressure is lower, a pen with no hole can explode soiling your attire with ink.

The hole equalizes the pressure in the pen to allow it to write. So the next time you see it, you should know it is not just there for fun.

8. An Extra Piece Of Fabric


Those who usually buy from “bend down boutiques” might not relate to this but if you’re the type who always buy brand new clothing from boutiques, you will notice there is a piece of fabric with a button on it tucked in the pocket of either a shirt or trousers.

Many people actually think it is meant for patching when you get the attire torn but that’s far from it. It is actually meant for you to use to test how it will react with detergents when using your washing machine.

So what you need to do with is by washing it to see how it will fade before washing the main attire to prevent colors from sipping into other fabrics.
