Saran wrap always seems like a such a good idea…until you’ve somehow turned it into a gnarled, scrunched-up mess that absolutely won’t adhere to the rim of your soup bowl.

Here’s a nifty way to get it to stick to surfaces like plastic, ceramic and glass.

What you need: Cling wrap and a paper towel.

What you do: Wet the paper towel and run it along the rim of the bowl or plate. Then stretch the Saran wrap over the plate, as you ordinarily would. Behold as the wrap gets a much better grip. 

Why it works: Much like gelatin, cling wrap becomes sticky when it comes into contact with water, making it a pain to unroll (dry your hands first!) but way easier to corral around leftovers. 

So? Pull, tear, cling, repeat.
