Did everyone else in the world know this? How did I miss it?
When did some clever packaging designer come up with this? See the little tab you can press in on the ends of the aluminium foil package? Apparently they are meant to hold the roll in the box. I wouldn’t know because I’ve never used them. I had no idea they were there!
At the after-reunion reunion committee meeting we had this week, somehow this came up in conversation. I was shocked that I, the possesser of more rolls of wrap than I can probably use in a lifetime, had never heard of such a thing! We were meeting here, so I immediately went to the pantry …
… where I have “a few” rolls of wraps, and grabbed the aluminum foil off the top of the stack to see if it had the tabs that had been mentioned. Sure enough, it did!
Later, I took the time to look at the other boxes to see if they all have the tabs — they don’t.
I found it especially interesting that a 100 sq. ft. roll of Saran wrap had the tabs, but a 200 sq. ft. roll didn’t. Maybe the larger roll is heavy enough that it doesn’t require the assistance of tabs? Or is it that Cling Plus is easier to manage than Premium? Questions I can ponder at my leisure, since I’m retired.
Well, now that I know they are there, I’m going to start “engaging” the tabs whenever they do appear on a box. I’m all for any little convenience that makes life easier.
Be sure to tell me if you didn’t know this either. I’d really like to think that there are at least two of us who didn’t know this!
May this be the hardest thing you have to think about today. Happy Saturday!
