Aluminum Foil Retainers
Aluminum foil is amazing when you think about it.
It’s indispensable in the kitchen and all the good Halloween costumes require it. So, it’s no surprise there are a lot of aluminum foil secrets. For example, most people don’t realize there is a proper use for aluminum foil in the microwave, the FDA even has guidelines for it.
But, there is one aluminum foil secret that everyone needs to know about: the aluminum foil retainers. There are perforated retainer tabs on the side of the aluminum foil box. When pushed in, these tabs hold the roll in place while you unroll it.
Maybe it’s too much to ask, but I wish they pre-pushed these tabs at the factory — I went years without noticing them. Then again, maybe it’s the manufacturer’s inside joke; now that has been foiled.
