Products That Were Originally Invented for Something Else

Dec 10, 2018

Every day we make use of one or the other inventions which have made our lives easier. But do you know not everything was made for its actual usage. There are some products available in the world which were made for some other purpose but ended up delivering their current use. Here are few  such products which were invented for a completely different purpose than the one which we know them for today:

1. Kotex

Initially, Kotex were introduced as wartime bandages and nurses were supposed to use them during the wartime to stop the bleeding and absorb the moisture of wounds. It will not be wrong to say that the nurses discovered its other use as well.

2. Chewing gum

This is something we all love, but it was discovered when the scientists were working on a new formula to create a new kind of rubber.

3. Bubble wrap

Our favorite nerve calmer was introduced when engineers were initially trying to make the wallpaper but ended up creating bubble wrap.

4. Listerine

Due to its antiseptic properties it was used in medical surgeries.

5. Coca-Cola

One of the world famous cold drink brands was originally invented as an alternative to morphine addiction to treat headaches and relieve anxiety.

6. Play-Doh

Play-Doh is the brightly colored salty clay that most of us grew up playing with was invented to clean wallpapers!

7. Brandy

This after dinner drink that started off as a byproduct of transporting wine. Some of the merchants, perhaps after a long day on the road opened their inventory and discovered that the concentrated wine actually tasted pretty good and Brandy was born.
