Plastic Wrap Review-Yes, I'm Serious

I had to write about how awesome this CVS Total Home plastic wrap is for a couple of reasons. Number one, I use a lot of plastic wrap, and number two, my life has gotten to the point where finding a good plastic wrap makes for an excellent triumph.

I was out of plastic wrap the other day and couldn't make it over to where I buy the big rolls of kitchen service-sized plastic. I went to CVS for something and said fine, I'll get a roll of theirs to hold me over. I had no doubt that it would be weak and non-clingy like most generic plastic wraps, but it would do in a pinch.

So imagine my surprise when I got it home and it actually worked really well! Then my husband made a comment about how well it gripped the lettuce when he was wrapping that up, so I knew I wasn't hallucinating.

Let me tell you, this stuff is very grippy...it's almost to the point where it wants to grip itself if you're not careful and you can't get it untangled. It's actually a lot better than the commercial wrap I was using as far as that goes.

The bad part is that it only comes in the regular widths, so if you want a wider commercial-use wrap you're out of luck. The box is also slightly difficult to maneuver, since it has a slot that you're supposed to pull the wrap out of and it tends to grab itself and suck itself back into the box. You end up having to pry it off the roll about every third use if you're not careful.

So don't be afraid to buy this stuff, it works. Generic or not, ti gets the job done.
