Keeps clinch wrap usable

This is a strip added to the tear-off or slice-off edge of the plastic wrap dispenser box or wall unit. Powered by heat scavenged from the nearby stove-top, it adds a charge to the desired length of wrap that prevents it from adhereing to itself. The charge dissipates as the wrap is used normally. Thank god someone invented this!

Static Cling? https://www.thehapp...ontent/static-cling
Static charge doesn't MAKE it cling to itself, but would charging PREVENT it from sticking to itself? [a1, Oct 19 2023]

I bunned myself just to see if it was possible. Feel free to correct this ethical breach. Does anybody know the speed limit on the Autobone?

I'll have to think a bit more if ADDING a static charge will keep plastic film from sticking to itself. On first read I thought you meant to dissipate a charge, which wouldn't help. But charging it, like the leaves of an electroscope? Might work. How do you keep it from discharging as soon as you touch it?

[+] for forcing me to think.

Now I have a problem. If I remove the bun I put on my own entry all that is left is the correcting bone someone kindly entered in response to my request for correcting the self-bun. But is that fair? The only way I could find out if it was possible or ethical was to do it, and now all the bunning and boning is screwed up. Well, now I know. What I don’t know is why this seems important? Got any ideas?

Some people worry too much about the scoreboard. If it harms none, do what you will.

I gave this a [-] at first and changed it a [+] after re-reading it.

[a1] Maybe something added to the plastic or a pre-charge on the roll before use? I think the pre-charging is the best alternative. I don’t think the maddening self-adherence is electric but could be foiled by a charge. Even a non-conductive balloon will carry a static charge and stick to the wall. What is needed is the reverse.

Perhaps a Van de Graaff thingie built into the container and powered by the brief spin of the roll when plastic wrap is pulled out? Or something.

Just don’t put Old Sparky next to the sous vide.

Keep your cling wrap in the freezer.

You have extra room in your freezer?

Yes, we found some space in the back yard to bury the ... other things.

As long as nobody flattenizes with the enemy I'm good with this.
