Usually, you won’t see them, but they’re there inside the devices you use every day. They get you to work and back home, keep you in touch with friends worldwide, and make your life easier in a thousand different ways.

We’re talking about magnets, of course.

Ask most people to list any magnets in their homes, and usually, their first response will be about the ones stuck to the refrigerator, holding up family photos, or their child’s report card (if it was a good one).  After that, they might be stuck for ideas.

That’s why we’ve created this new infographic that identifies several of the hidden magnets in your home and their contribution to your day-to-day life.

You may be surprised to discover how many appliances and electronic devices don’t rely only on the current that comes through your wall outlets. Electricity supplies the juice, but somewhere inside the motor, there is likely a magnet that also needs to do its job before you can wash your clothes, clean your rugs or pop some popcorn in the microwave.

And those devices that need phone jacks and connectors? They need magnets too.

Check out the infographic here. Then, next time you’re asked about any magnets in your house, you’ll have plenty to say!
