One Of Life's Best Kept Secrets!!!!

One of life's best kept secrets.
Don't even try and act like you already knew this either.

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.

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 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 who didn't know about this.


  1. I've been a homemaker for over 30 years - this is news to me. Thanks for sharing!

  5. WOW!! We didn't know that either..Thanks Mom!

  6. Oh so that's how it works. No, I had no idea about this either.

  7. Whaaaaa!!!! How long have we all been living with this little bit of information right under our noses! I immediately went to my aluminum wrap and yeah, there it was! Of course I had to test it out and it DOES work! Thanks so much for the tip!

  8. I didn't know this either - too funny. Thanks for the tip - I'll pass along to my friends.

  9. Wow, I feel like an idiot too!
