I'm sure this email has been going around a while, but it's new to me. I just went in to the kitchen and pressed all the tabs.




(text of the email)
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.

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 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!

LMAO! What a revelation! I did not know either... But I also buy the ginormous plastic wrap from costco that keeps the roll inside and has a slider to cut it - I dated it when we bought it to see how many years it would last... going on two now!

I remember talking about it here a little while ago. Up till then I had no idea - I went home that night and pushed in all our tabs.

I heard this a couple of months ago and sure enough, not one was pushed in at my house! In fact, I have often wondered what that was for...................

Even my cheapo roll has it!
