Everyone is familiar with the little bag seals that come with the bread from the grocery store. At first, you may not pay any attention to the color of these bag clasps, but you really should. The colors of the tags are not random. They are actually there to let you know exactly how old the bread is.
In fact, it actually says the days of the week on each colored tag in order to indicate the day that this specific bread was made and delivered to your store. What’s more, the colors are usually already organized in alphabetical order to help you find the freshest bag.
Did you ever wonder why elevators ding so much? If you are in an elevator, you don't need a ding to remind you that the doors are opening, you can probably figure that out on your own. But not everyone can. As it turns out, elevators are one of the many and growing numbers of things in our life that have been modified and specifically suited to adhere to the needs of the visually impaired and other handicaps.
The dings in an elevator on each floor are actually to let everyone know the direction in which the elevator is going. One ding means the elevator is going up, and two dings mean that it is on its way down. Pretty clever, right?
Unfortunately, there are no innovative and new ways to be using YouTube. But this tip will certainly make your YouTube surfing much simpler. While there are millions of keyboard shortcuts that differ between Mac and Windows and even between YouTube, Facebook, and others, there are three that seem to be fairly universal. If you're in the middle of a YouTube clip and you think you missed something, pressing the "J" key will rewind your video by 10 seconds.
Conversely, if you'd like to fast forward, pressing the "L" key will fast forward your video by 10 seconds, and pressing the "K" will pause and play. It may seem unimportant to some people, but boy, can it get frustrating trying to rewind by dragging your mouse and ending up having to watch the whole thing from the beginning.
If you've ever tried using dental floss (which you should, as it helps get rid of up to 90% of the plaque that you miss from regular brushing!), then you know that it is not the most comfortable thing to hold in your hands. Half the time, it feels like you have to sacrifice your pointer fingers for the sake of your teeth and pray that the blood comes back to them after you unwrap the dental floss from them.
One way to avoid this problem is to grab onto both ends of the string and tie them together to create a sort of dental floss circle. The resulting flossing loop would be much simpler to use and wouldn’t hurt your fingers as much. Just make sure to leave much more length to the original string than you would normally because you still want to be able to hold it up to your teeth.
The era of social media is finally making its way to the mom community, and these expert bakers are more than excited to share their knowledge. So, you know that drawer under your built-in oven? The one we all keep our pots and pans in? As it turns out, that drawer was never meant to be the home of our cooking utensils.
It was actually created for the main purpose of serving as a food-warming compartment. After your food is done cooking, the best place to store it up until mealtime is in that lower drawer, as it contains some of the leftover heat from the oven above. It also makes it easy to completely take apart your oven for the daunting task of cleaning.
