Prevent Soggy Sandwiches With A Plastic Food Container And Glad Wrap

If the sandwiches you take to work or school end up being a soggy mess give this method by Reddit user kitten_suplex a try: place your bread at the bottom of a reusable food container, cover with Glad wrap, and then add your sandwich toppings.

You'll need a food container that is just large enough to place your slice of bread inside — the creator of this method used a Rubbermaid Take-along. Place your bread on the bottom, cover with a loose layer of Glad wrap, then add your sandwich ingredients in the order of least-moist at the bottom (lunchmeat, cheese) and soggier ingredients at the top (tomatoes, lettuce).

Admittedly this won't work with a spread-based sandwich such as peanut butter and jelly (use the jelly pocket method for those) but otherwise it does a great job of keeping your bread dry.

    great, now I can have all the chemicals from the plastic wrap leech into my sandwich even easier; yummy.

      It must be awkward wearing a tin foil hat as you eat your sandwich in the office...

        You, sir, win the Internet today.
