#3 Caltrops for kids.

#11 #17
Well, I have no idea what these two are. Maybe they're regional items.

#32
I've never seen this, but it seems fairly obvious what it's for.

Cora,
#11 has a spare toilet roll under it. I agree #17 is regional as I don't know it. #32 doesn't seem obvious to me...

Irene, You are correct. When I was a kid, it was called "commodities". They made monthly stops and the poor could get that cheese, flour, corn meal, peanut butter and a few other things to hold body and soul together. Personally, I despise cheese of any kind. It stinks and I find it disgusting. But, those that ate cheese back in those days, said that the commodity cheese was the best they had ever eaten. Next month I'll be 74 and, yes, I knew every one of them.

#23 looks more like a choke to me, but I guess it depends on region and manufacturer ?

lol I have that exact same Crock Pot in the exact same olive green color. 40 years, still works like a charm! It was my mom's and when she passed, I grabbed that up. I have a newer one too, but I just can't let the old green one go. Too many wonderful memories and meals.

I knew pretty much everyone, except the Mercurchrome medicine, because nobody ever gave me any medicine.

#19 I'm pretty sure meat tenderizers aren't some mythic long-forgotten relic, it's just (IMHO) that less people seem interested in home-cooking and so less folk are now familiar with such tools... In this case: laziness breads ignorance.

Mercurochrome didn't sting at all, it was iodine that stung as well as peroxide.

I know a lot of these, but #15 is a washboard. Anyone that’s ever used one bigger problems than being old. Being dead for one.

Jehiel #15 Washboards are still being sold for survivalists and musicians. Check out music stores online in the percussian section.

I take serious exception to most of these!
You don't have to be old to know 90% of them... You just have to not be a stupid, sheltered [email protected]$$...
And being from freaking buzzfeed... I'm not surprised at all they fit that bill!

You guys don't use n. 5 anymore and just mix your potatoes to a glazy mass? We wouldn't eat it. You can look it up, we even use a 'passe-vite' in Belgium and France to make the best mashed potatoes, this is if we have the time to do it, if not we use n. 5. We never mix. Try it, the taste is so much better.

Velveeta, potato mashers and meat tenderizers are not old relics.
