Something new?

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
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.
I know you're going to go and check your boxes, so go ahead!

* I cannot take credit for this. I received it in an email and had to share it with y'all.


  1. Now I'm going to go home this evening and check my boxes. It seems all my life I've been fighting those rolls. That is so neat but it makes me wonder if it's something new or has it always been there??? Thanks for the info. 'On Ya'-ma

  2. amazing who knew...the Commerical girls should show us that trick!

  3. LOL you are right I went and checked my box ~ I have always had trouble with the foil ~ and now at last you may have solved this problem for me :o) ~ Ally x

  4. Hmm...I thought this would only be in America but I see Ally has found one in her box too. I`m off to see if theres one on mine!

  5. I read this a few months ago and actually had already forgotten it. I did check it too when I read it.

  6. Well, look at that! I never knew it was there. Thanks for spreading the word!

  7. I just had to run to the kitchen and check this out. Wow, talk about amazing discoveries, I will never again fight with the roll.
