But perhaps you're storing cling wrap in the wrong draw, suggests TODAY Food. Instead of storing it away in a cupboard, trying moving it to the freezer
The theory behind their suggestion is that when the material is kept cold, it loses annoying static electricity while at the same time, the molecular makeup changes in different climates, losing some of it's adhesive qualities.
"The adhesion between pieces of plastic may be driven by the molecules in the surface rearranging themselves to form weak chemical bonds," Dr. Chad Orzel, Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Union College told TODAY Food.
"And the lower temperature may inhibit that process a bit."
"The plastic wrap was a lot easier to unroll and use," Forte verifies.
"It doesn’t stick to itself when it’s cold, but still works to cover up a dish. As it warms up, it goes back to being sticky, but it’s definitely easier to handle when cold."
