Aluminum Foil Secret

I learned a new kitchen tip today.  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.  Well, I would like to share this with you. If you look at the end of a Reynolds foil box you'll find the works "press here to lock end". 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.   I know some   may have already known this but it was news to me.  I try not to spend too much time in the kitchen....I prefer selling Real Estate.

That happens to me all of the time and it drives me nuts.  You may think it is trivial but you saved me years of grief! Thanks for the tip.

That's a great tip.  Thanks for sharing .... and since I don't use that brand, I hope the other brands have it too. :)

Cool!  I just went and checked all my rolls and got them all fixed up.  Thanks for the idea.  I think it's funny that this is news to so many.

I had no idea, and that is so frustrating.  I just checked mine, and sure enough, it was there.  That is funny like Ann said that this is news to so many.

Ha! I had no idea...  Thanks for sharing.

But Connie I'm with you. I spend as little time as posssible in the kitchen. I'd rather be selling!!! Let's co-op another sale together soon.
