Updated on April 15, 2013

Stretch Film or Stretch Wrap

We usually call this item stretch film but others call this stretch wrap.

Stretch film or stretch wrap are very useful on packing all things and to keep the pile of boxes in one place.

This is also very useful when moving your cabinets and drawers to another place. Instead of using Adhesive tapes, you can use stretch film to keep the drawers or cabinets close. When you are done, simply tear the stretch film and viola, you will never have to worry about left sticky residue.

Stretch film can also protects important things from dust, insects ( like bedbugs) and even water. Stretch film are very useful and easy to use. I used this to cover our mattress because the plastic cover was already torn.
