Aluminum Foil & Plastic Wrap Boxes

My MIL just sent me an email about these, and I will confess that I didn't know about this until I got her email! The following is quoted directly from the email.

Don't tell me you've known about this for years!!!! Did any of you know this? I can't even believe this!!! If you did know this how come you never told me? I've gone through my whole life being frustrated at those stinkin' rolls and all these years there's been a solution on the end of the box!!! Whoever looks at the end of your aluminum foil box? I guess we're never too old to learn something...

Was this something we were supposed to learn from our Moms????? I can't believe it's been there all this time. 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 stupid 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!
