 I call all slow cookers by the brand name CrockPot.

I call all plastic bags Zip-lock Bags.

I call all tissues Kleenex.

I call all gelatin Jello.

    I almost always say Coke instead of Pop or Soda.  I think I do the same thing on the other stuff that you do is about all except for my drink thing.

    Pampers instead of diapers.

    Tabasco instead of hot sauce.

    Velcro instead of hook and loop fasteners.

    That's all I can think of.
