I vary in my naming of it, but I think plastic wrap wins out. However, Saran is the only one that actually clings for me.

And I have a love/hate relationship with it.

I only answer to saran. I mean I wouldn't be confused if someone said to put plastic wrap on something, but it might take a minute to compute.

i think i say saran wrap and plastic wrap pretty interchangeably, but i sort of hate calling things by their brand name. This stems from when i was a kid and people called tissues, kleenex, and I had no idea what they were talking about.

Usually saran wrap, sometimes plastic wrap. Or "that stuff my dad used to throw at me in frustration because I had a knack for calming it down and making it behave when he just got it all wadded up." But that's kind of a mouthful.

Plastic wrap.

But then again, I say "lip balm," "tissue," and "bandage" rather than "chap-stick," "kleenex," and "band-aid".

Plastic wrap or saran wrap. Saran wrap seems to cling better than generic, but it still kind of sucks. I much prefer to use tupperware or ziploc bags for leftovers.

I say cling film. Also, I use a massive roll from the restaurant supply place that has a slider cutter, and it's the best thing ever.

Glad wrap! Glad is the name of the company that makes it here. Also it's just a nice, friendly name. Like a suffocating, plastic hug.

I don't use it. I can never get it to work right and my mom hates it so I didn't grow up with it.

I also say both saran wrap and plastic wrap. I grew up saying saran wrap, but like others here, I'm also trying to switch away from using brand names. Plus, the other stuff doesn't stick nearly as good as saran, so I refuse to give it that honor.

Plastic wrap, but I almost never use it. Plastic containers>plastic wrap any day, if I can help it.

Clingwrap here!

PS I think this is one of those times where you say/see a word so many times that it loses all meaning and you have no idea anymore.

My in laws have one of these and it is the best thing ever and I am forever jealous.

Saran Wrap, almost exclusively.

I also cannot use saran wrap. It's one of those "adult" things I'm never going to get the hang of.

Cling film. And the only use I get out of it is wrapping it around my head.

I know, I hated that! But I still say Saran Wrap, cause that's what my mum said.

We have this press & seal wrap at work that kind of blows my mind and makes me really happy since I've always been useless with cling wrap, but I'm sure it's full of awful chemicals. But that shizzle does the trick!

Plastic wrap. I know I heard Saran wrap growing up, but I don't remember if we used it.
