Learn something new every day

Look at the end of your aluminum foil box ( this was news to me)

 

 

 Was this something we were supposed to learn from our Mom's?????

I can't believe it's been there all this time. 

   

I  had to go into the kitchen and check this out for  myself.

Whoever looks at the end of your aluminum foil box? 

You know when 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.

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

Thanks Barb C.
