Oh, that's how you open it!
you ever bought any of those moist towelettes in
the handy travel pack? Opening the package is kind of
confusing. They look like ordinary
packages where you just tear them
open along the top. But they have a "secret" flap
right on the front of the package.
You can open it up, pull out a towelette and then
re-seal it. The towelettes in the package don't dry out.
Its a nice feature if you know about
had an unopened pack of towelettes in my flight bag.
(For some reason your hands always get dirty flying and
there is never any water around.)
A friend asked if he could borrow one. Unfortunately,
he didn't find the secret flap on the package
until I told him about it ... after he had
ripped open the package! Of course, once the package
is ripped open, all of the towelettes dry out.
(Especially in New Mexico.)
way to make it easier to see the secret flap
might be to show right on the flap an illustration of
fingers opening the flap. Using a package with
a less obviously-tearable edge might make it
less likely that a person would try to tear open the
edge of the package.
The package could also say "DO NOT OPEN HERE!" on the
edges. - GY
Write "OPEN HERE" on the place where you are suppose to
open the towlette pack. - EH
