the hole on the side of the sink.
we know the function of the main drain hole in the sink or bathtub although hardly anyone uses it for the intended purpose.in fact it was designed to ensure rational consumption of water instead of wasting dozens of liters of water you could just fill the sink and use the water to wash or do the dishes however almost no one does that but if you look closely you can see another hole on the side of the sink and that has a similar function. engineers designed it in order to protect you from flooding the apartment after all you could turn on the water and then you get distracted by a dog running around the house or acrying child .the side holes let the excess water flow into the siphon by the way there are many simple ways to reduce water consumption in your apartment and if you’re not concerned about environmental issues then at least think about the money it could save you. for example don’t forget to close the tap while brushing your teeth scrubbing dishes or washing your body, in addition you can water the flowers in the house where the water you use to rinse the fruits and veg and watch out for leaks. did you know that if your tap trips even a little you waste at least a thousand liters of water every month? so if you fix these issues you’ll be avoiding flooding and also saving some money.
any school child student or an office employee uses convenient wire band notepads.you can easily put these on your knees or easily tear out the pages you don’t need you wouldn’t believe it but originally the wire spirals and the notepads were designed for a rather unusual purpose.in the past people often had to deal with the invasion of rats and in addition to spreading disease also loved to feast on rare books and manuscripts that is why people
started to bind the sheets with the spirals which protected them from hungry rodents.
