6 Hidden Features of Simple Objects Around You

We’re too busy to noticed small things around us and today I’m gonna share to you the hidden secrets of some items that we ignore.

Hole in Pen Cap

Punt in Bottle

The dimple at the bottom of a wine bottle is known as a “punt”. The punt is known to serve a few uses but I’ll explain to you it’s main purpose. Historically, flat bottom bottles were hand-blown and would occasionally result in deformities. Those deformities sometimes prevented the bottle from standing up straight and would make it prone to tipping over. The punt came about as a solution to this. They would tie it off and push the excess up into the bottle. There are more advanced ways to make a glass bottle but we still use punt to preserve the tradition.

Plastic Cup Lids

You can try to clip it the base of the cup and it will fit perfectly.

Hole in Pot Handle
