...That are only known by their brand name.

I saw a thread about Pritt-stick, and realised there are loads of things that we only know by their brand name, for example, Sellotape or Coke.

Thought i'd leave you with thought, and ask, what other ones can you think of?

Transits. I used to think that a Transit van was actually a type of van, like you get lorries and trucks and stuff.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

Kleenex.

But I think Sellotape is just a british thing. One time I was at work, and a british guy asked me if we had any sellotape and I didn't know what he was talking about.
