In response to last week’s viral obsession surrounding the origin of the word ‘news’, we thought we’d drop an actual mind blowing fact about something you probably see every day. Did you know that the base of liquid soap bottles are specifically designed to fit within the small groove in sinks? That’s right, the same groove that was originally designed to house bars of soap.

Well, it’s true. You see, while soap bars have gone out of fashion, old sink designs still have those nifty little grooves on the side. Considering it’s a lot easier, and cheaper, to buy a liquid soap dispenser rather than buy a new sink, the designers of liquid soap bottles decided to retro fit the bases of the bottles. 

Bet you never made that connection did you. You’re welcome.
