BuzzFeed: there are 22 words that are brand names and you didn’t knew this


As far as I know, I used the word “to xerox” a lot of times before a friend told me that Xeros is (was) actually a company. When a company has that much of an impact, then you get to use their brand name as verb or noun without even thinking about it’s origins.

Let me google that 😀

Some of the words you didn’t knew are brand names:
– bikini
– xerox
– super heroes
– styrofoam
– laundromat
– post-its
– videotape
– dumpster
– zip code
