1. Shirt loops

Nowadays many people ask themselves questions about using the loops on their shirts, many even have problems wearing them and prefer to wear only T-shirts. The interesting thing is that this concept emerged in the navy, since the sailors of that time did not have space to put their shirts in the Guardaropas.

Then, because they didn’t have enough space, it was easy for them to hang their shirts on hooks. During the 60’s young people used this concept when going to the gym. No doubt if you don’t have space it will be very useful to you.


2. Color dots on toothpaste containers
