Secrets about "Our Friend" Aluminum Foil

Enter the giveaway from Over The Top Aprons HERE.

I received an email about aluminum foil and cling wrap a few weeks ago and have to share it with you ladies. I am probably way, way, way late to this party, but maybe there are some other oblivious losers out there like me. I have been using these products for at least 27 years and never noticed this marvel of modern technology.

You know when you try to pull some saran wrap or aluminum foil out and the roll comes out of the box? You've had this happen...don't deny it. Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start over. The darn roll always comes out at the wrong time.

Look at the end of the roll of foil or wrap.



Right there on the end of the box is a tab to lock the roll in place.

Question: How long has this little locking tab been there?

Answer: An eternity and then some...

I can't count the number of times the Saran wrap roll has jumped out when I was trying to cover something up. Now I have seen the light and can function like a normal human, not like a dork trying to wrap leftovers...

I received the same email and immediately checked it out. Who'd a thought?

LY said...

Hello Sitsa..how u doing?thanks for sharing this thought.

Grand Pooba said...

Wha? Why hasn't anyone shared this secret with me before?!

The Mind of a Mom said...

Oh I only knew of this purely by accident when my daughter was into poking holes in things and pushed the end of the box! I have known for a while so I guess it is my bad for not sharing!

Becca Watson said...

I know of this secret, but it doesn't do me any good.. The roll still comes out of the box even though the little tabys are pushed in..

Julia said...

Becca you must be doing some serious food wrangling then!!! Or are you doing body wraps? I have been doing great with the tabs. Are you sure you pushed them in all the way? ;)

Mrs. Jelly Belly said...

Don't feel too bad about not knowing that - I didn't know it either until maybe a month ago. And I posted about it, too, because I was shocked! Clueless.

Kendra said...

I'm dumbfounded...LOL...and feeling like an idiot. Never noticed it before.

Terri said...

This settles it. You are officially the smartest person on the planet! :) Thanks for posting this because I had no idea that little tabe was even there!

Mountain Woman said...

I can't believe this. I've never, ever seen this before. If you hadn't mentioned it, I'd never have known. Wow!

Shannon said...

I soooo didn't know that was there. Dang.

ruby said...

I did'nt know it either.

When people ask me why I waste so much time on the internets reading blogs, I can't point to this little nugget of knowledge as the reason!

I NEVER KNEW THIS EITHER!
