10 Everyday Objects You Never Knew the Names For
Chances are you handle objects like zippers, hair dryers and umbrellas on a regular basis. It's also likely that you refer to parts of those items, like that hair dryer attachment that you add on to the nozzle, with general phrases since you didn't realize they had proper names. Well, your mind is about to be blown: Here are the correct names for the things you never thought had any.
1. Pull Tab
The part of the zipper you yank on to make your jeans or jacket close. Speaking of, the part directly attached to the pull tab, the one that runs along the track to zip or unzip your clothes, is called the slider or slider head.
Those stringy things on a banana that you have to keep removing as you try to enjoy the potassium-packed fruit.
3. Scroll Wheel
The ball on your computer mouse that you use to move a page up or down. We know; seems so obvious now! But don't feel bad—it was news to us too.
4. Air Concentrator
The hair-dryer attachment you add on to blow-dry your hair.
No, it's not a virus your cat can contract; it refers to that catchy tune you can't get out of your head.
The bottom part of a wine bottle that points inward. Back when glassblowers made bottles, this helped the bottles stand up, according to WineSpectator.com. Now that wine bottles are machine-made the punt's not necessary, but rather just tradition.
You know that gross gunk you remove from your eyes in the morning? Yep, it has an equally gross name.
8. Lie Bumps
Have you ever had a white-colored, pimple-like lump appear on your tongue? Well, it's not actually a pimple. It's a lie bump, more formally known as transient lingual papillitis (TLP). They also tend not to be serious, but if they last for more than week, see your doctor.
Two common types of umbrellas are the telescopic umbrella (the kind you throw in your purse all the time) and the stick umbrella. The cap at the tip of the latter kind of umbrella is a ferrule. The same term also refers to the metal attachment toward the non-writing end of the pencil, right before the eraser.
10. Nose Pads
Those clear, oval-shaped attachments on the inner part of eyeglasses and sunglasses. They sit on your nose and protect it from the frame.
