Clearing Up Your Soda Can Confusion
Those little soda can tabs we like to pull at and play with have a unique shape that has left people wondering exactly what they are for beyond freeing our fizzy drinks. Do they have that hole in them to save money on production, or are they just for stringing together those weird necklaces we all made in middle school?
Neither! The holes only make the tab stronger, but soda lovers have developed an ingenious use for them. If you’ve ever put a straw inside a soda can, you know the straw will bob around and occasionally escape. However, if you thread your straw through the tab hole, it will stay in place from the get-go, letting you sip away with ease.
