It took some time to figure out what it was meant for, and then the goal got excited. She shared her discovery in a Facebook group that brings together users who deal with cleaning topics, and asked members if anyone else knew about the hidden part of the machine, many acknowledging that they had seen it, but never discovered its purpose do not have.

Stacey says it is used to more easily measure the amount of detergent, that is, to prevent excessive consumption.
