I have a confession to make. I love Glad Press’n Seal. I always HATED the old plastic wrap. It’s pointless and barely sticks to anything except itself. Glad Press’n Seal works like the old stuff was supposed to. It is perfect. It’s so strong, that we decided it would be fun to do a little experiment with it. I will call it “The Great Glad Press’n Seal Experiment”. We wanted to know how strong it really is.
How We Conducted our Glad Press’n Seal Experiment:
For our experiment we got four different bowls of heavier objects. We used marbles, rocks, rice and water. We filled the bowls full then covered them with Glad Press’n Seal (that we picked up at Walmart) to test their strength. We used some old plastic wrap that I have had hanging around in my cupboard for years (literally) to compare it to.
My kids each made their guesses about the results (hypothesis). Which ones could the Glad Press’n Seal Hold? Which ones could the regular plastic wrap hold? They didn’t think it would hold the rocks and marbles. Even the water, we were little unsure of.
So what do you think happened? The Glad Press’n Seal exceeded our strength expectations and held in ALL FOUR BOWLS full of stuff! I was impressed.
This is my little man’s strong face. Can’t you tell? 🙂
Next, we tried the Wal-mart plastic wrap to compare. This one made me even more nervous. I didn’t want my kids dropping ricks on their heads or dumping water all over themselves…
The results surprised me a little. It held in all except the water. My daughter got wet! HOWEVER, my kids were holding the plastic wrap down as they tipped the bowls over. They had to press it down 10 times to try to keep it in place. I think they were over compensating for the weakness of it by holding it in place. Plus, I kept saying, “BE CAREFUL” as they dumped the bowls over.
Our Glad Press’n Seal Experiment Results:
Glad Press’n Seal is basically magic. It is the best stuff ever invented. I already pretty much knew it, but now I am convinced. Don’t even bother with the other junk. The End.
