“Why does cling wrap stick to everything except what you want it to?”

Many people have noticed that cling wrap (food wrap) sticks to everything except what you want it to cling to. “gah why does cling wrap stick to everything except the pot you’re trying to cover?” was posted on Twitter by Cherelle Nuske-Doogs on August 13, 2010. “Cling wrap sticks to everything except the actual surface you want it to cling to” was posted on Twitter by Ashlyn Murphy on June 28, 2013.

“Cling wrap can stick to itself or not stick to itself but only does what you don’t want” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on September 26, 2020.


Wikipedia: Plastic wrap
Plastic wrap, cling film, Saran wrap, cling wrap or food wrap is a thin plastic film typically used for sealing food items in containers to keep them fresh over a longer period of time. Plastic wrap, typically sold on rolls in boxes with a cutting edge, clings to many smooth surfaces and can thus remain tight over the opening of a container without adhesive. Common plastic wrap is roughly 0.0005 inches (12.7 μm) thick. The trend has been to produce thinner plastic wrap, particularly for household use (where very little stretch is needed), so now the majority of brands on shelves around the world are 8, 9 or 10 μm thick.

Does anyone else despise cling wrap? It sticks everywhere except where you need it to. Me and aluminum foil are besties.

How the fuck do they engineer plastic cling wrap to stick to nothing but itself, except when you’re trying to get it to seal something?
