Find magnets in 13 everyday objects

In everyday life, there are a lot of objects that use magnets. In fact, even if you can't identify it directly or be aware of it, everything that works around you makes use of magnets and the magnetic field.

Magnets can be found in the simplest or most complex devices you use every day. From home appliances such as the refrigerator, microwave oven and electric fan, to your company's office equipment such as computers and printers. All these devices use magnets.

In this sense, we will now look at 13 objects that use magnets and that we use in our daily lives.

Magnets in the bedroom

  • Duvet covers. Magnets are used in some duvet covers to keep them closed.

  • Hanging art. Hook magnets can be used to hang art from walls and posters. They can also be used to organize closets by hanging scarves, jewelry, belts, and more.

  • Bags and jewelry. Bags often incorporate magnets in closures. Magnetic closures are also used to make jewelry.

  • Television. All televisions have cathode ray tubes, or CRTs, and these have magnets inside. In fact, televisions specifically use electromagnets that direct the flow of energy to the corners, sides, and half of your television screen.

  • Doorbell. It's not exactly in the bedroom, but the doorbell has magnets, and it may have several, and you'll know it simply by listening to the amount of tones it produces. The bells also contain solenoids, which causes a spring-loaded piston to strike a bell. It happens twice, because when you release the button, the magnet passes underneath the piston and causes it to strike.

The kitchen is full of magnets

  • Microwave magnets. Microwave ovens use magnetrons consisting of magnets to generate electromagnetic waves that heat food.

  • Refrigerator doors. Refrigerators and freezers are sealed with a magnetic mechanism so they are easy to open from the inside.

  • Spice and knife rack. A magnetic spice rack with neodymium magnets is easy to make and useful for cleaning valuable counter space. Also a knife rack is excellent for organizing kitchen utensils.

More magnets in the office

  • Many cabinet doors are secured with magnetic latches against unintentional opening.

  • Computers use magnets in a variety of ways. First, the hard drive's disk is covered with small magnets, which allow computers to store data. Then, CRT computer screens are produced as television screens and, of course, use electromagnets.

  • Organizing office supplies. Neodymium magnets are useful for organization. Metal office supplies such as clips and thumbtacks will stick to the magnet so they don't move.

Magnets in the dining room?

  • Extendable tables. Extendable tables with additional pieces can use magnets to hold the table in place.

  • When you have an outdoor party, use magnets to keep the tablecloth in place. The magnets will prevent it from flying in the wind along with everything that sits on the table. Magnets also won't damage the table with holes or tape residue.

Now, when you use one of these items that use magnets, you won't do it the same way anymore, and you'll probably be a little more attentive to identify the magnet on them. At IMA we have a wide variety of magnets and we can help you choose the one that best suits your needs. If you have any questions, ask us.
