I was thinking of how so many things are referred to by the brand name of the company that first introduced the product. Some places call soda soda, or pop. Most places just call all of it Coke. What about Q-tips? Actually, they are cotton swabs, but are referred to mostly as Q-tips.

Let's see how many of them we can name. Actually, there is a name for using the brand name for something in general. Does anyone know what it is called?

See if you can name some!
