Aluminum Foil Wonder!

I got this from a friend.

Whoever looks at the end of the aluminum foil box?

You know when you try to pull some foil out and the whole roll comes out of the box. Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start over. It never goes back in the way it came out and it always comes out at the wrong time.

Well, I'd like to share this with you. Yesterday as I went to throw out an empty Reynolds foil box for some reason I looked at the end of the box. And written on the end it said, "Press here to lock end."

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

How long has this little locking tab been there? I then looked at a generic brand of aluminum foil and it had one, too.

I looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had one, too!

I can't count the number of times the Saran wrap roll has jumped out when I was trying to cover something up. The only box that doesn't have this feature is the Wax Paper box.

It's a small thing, but this little bit of information may just save your day when you're in a hurry.

Goes to show you learn something new --- every day.
