  33. Miya Otake says:

  35. Maggie R. Fulker says:

  36. Keith Umsted says:

    Derp

  37. Pam Hessee Paxson says:

    No I didn't know there were tabs on the ends! But let me tell you something else that you are doing wrong! After opening and pressing the tabs in take the lid and put the front flap on the inside of the cutting strip and bring the foil (etc.) up in between the flap and cutting strip. It Not only will it stay in place from you side tab but it will cut without wrinkling it up and cuts nice and even!!.

  38. Renie Price says:

    Amazing !! I've been using these things for 40 years and never noticed them …….lol

  39. I tried to push the tabs in and they are very hard to do.. maybe the cheaper bargain brand doesn't work as well as Reynolds.

  40. Yori, this is a great tip — I thought this was a joke title, but it's real! Thanks for noticing!

  41. Pete says:

    Who knew? The Renolyds Wrap is harder to push in.

    I've never done this and can't believe it's so simple. Thank you for the helpful info. That's too funny.

  46. Deb Moore says:

    thank you!

  47. How does anyone not know this…

  48. wow you can learn something new everyday i did not know there was tabs on the side never really paid that much attention thank you

  49. William Hay says:

    I am the cook if my house and I never even noticed that option. And I was in the rest business 17 years! Too funny LOL!

  50. Never knew that. Thanks for helping all of us through this because it was a real pain.

  51. Anyone who has worked in a restaurant prep knows that, the industrial ones have it so the domestic ones would have to.

    Thanks!

  63. Heather A C Fergus says:

    those are not on all boxes….only on the dearer brands.

  64. Rebecca Creasey says:

    i put my glad wrap in the fridge and it sticks to bowls and that better,,,

  65. Heather A C Fergus says:

    running a damp hand around the to of the bowl also makes it stick.

  66. Mark Rostron says:

    The manufacturers don't make this obvious, do they I'd never noticed those tabs. ! Thanks for sharing.

  67. I actually discovered this a couple of years ago, but before then . . . bad news!

  86. Jean Travisano Philip says:

    I never knew those little tabs were on the side! It made me laugh…..thinking how many times I've used them and never noticed!

  87. Danielle Rundquist says:

    Shut it! I did not know this…

  88. Courtney Clark-Lamberson says:

  89. Thanks for the great tip!

  90. Shelley Lagasse Lpn says:
