Aluminum foil issue – SOLVED!

Posted on: May 12, 2008

I received this little tip from a friend and forwarded it to a few other friends….not one person, so far, was aware of this.

So I decided to share – yep, I’m so kind and sweet – but I’ll still never be a southern belle!

 

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 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 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 my friends that did not know this.  If you all ready know this, delete this message and don’t e-mail me and make me feel dumber than I already feel.  If you didn’t know this, e-mail me and let me know so I won’t feel so dumb.

I hope I’m not the only person that didn’t know about this.

Well I guess I should just line up behind you because I never knew this either.
They say you learn something new each day and your tip will be my *something new* for today.
Thanks

I’ve had lots of responses and not one person knew it! I think the PR department has had a brain fart by not sharing this little tidbit. LOL

Well Billy Bejeezus! I didn’t know this either!

Dang. And it works, too.
