    I was forever cussing out these boxes...you know when you go to pull on the wrap and the whole roll pops out of the box :evil: :roll: :evil:

    Well....it was brought to my attention that on the small ends of the box are little pieces that you poke into the center of the cardboard roll and that keeps the roll in place.... :roll: :roll: :lol: :lol:

    Apparently...they have been there for quite some time, but I have never taken the time to thoroughly read those boxes :oops: I have mentioned this to quite a few people and got the same look :shock: that was on my face when I was told this :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Just thought that I would pass it on here too :wink:

    Wonder how long that's been there :oops: Thank you, had to go see if mine were that way (forgive my unbelief). Have always wished that the name of the T paper or paper towel brand would be put on the empty roll, then I would know if it was the one I liked and would buy again....or not :D

    You made me look!

    I found little spots on the short box sides of my foil where it says to press them in, but not on the Saran Cling Plus or my waxed paper.

    So thanks, because the foil is the worst re popping out of the box!

    How amazing, and I'm one of those who reads almost all boxes, cans, etc. and I never, ever noticed.

    When I was told this...she said that they have been there for "Years" ***said all drawn out...rolling of the eyes....ending with a big long sigh....ending with GEESH*** LMBO
    I think there is one brand of saran wrap that has plastic plugs to hold the roll in place...none of that fancy stuff for me, though... :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:
