Aluminum Foil - Something You May Not Know

...I decided to repost this handy kitchen household tip for those of my friends that missed it the first time around...I wonder how many of you are now using those tabs...lolololololol. Getting ready to go out for a bit...I'll visit your streams when we get back. I hope you're having a wonderful day, my friends. :~}

 

...a friend sent me this suggestion, and you know I just had to share it...hahahahah. :~}

 

I've been using aluminum foil for more years than I care to remember. Great stuff, but sometimes it can be a pain. You know, like when you are in the middle of doing something and you try to pull some foil out and the roll comes out of the box. Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start over.

The darn roll always comes out at the wrong time. Well, I would like to share this with you. Yesterday I went to throw out an empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it and looked at the end of the box. And written on the end it said, 'Press tab to lock end,' or 'Press to secure roll.' 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 then 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. I'm sharing this with everyone who didn't know this and those of you who already knew it. If you didn’t know this, e-mail me and let me know so I won’t feel so 'out of the loop.' I hope I'm not the only person that didn't know or had forgotten about this.

 

...rats...foiled again...lolololol...I hope your weekend is rolling right along, my friends. :~}

 

***an update...I just found out Reynolds has only been doing this since 1996...12 years...whew, and I thought I was tearing up my hands foolishly for longer...lolol. :~O
