    Tuesday's Kitchen Tips - Know your Wrap, Paper and Foil Boxes!
    Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Have you ever been irritated when trying to cut off a piece of clingy plastic wrap, aluminum foil, wax or parchment paper? The box slips and you have a mile long trail of product?

    Did you know the ends of the box have tabs? Just push them in to secure the roll and no more tumbling out!

    Are you heading to your kitchen to check this out?

    Thanks for the tip, although I have to say my problems with cling wrap is usually more that the serrated edge doesn't want to cut the wrap properly.

    Hi Tomato -

    I have stopped buying the store brand. I notice the brand names seem sturdier when tearing.

    I also recently noticed aluminum foils come in different weights.

    Have a great weekend!
