Experts' Experts: When using bubble wrap, the bubbles go on the inside


I was amused the other day when I opened a package from Blue Lounge, which makes exquisite Apple accessories: each of the items I'd ordered had been individually wrapped with bubble wrap — yet the bubbles were on the outside, facing the inside of the shipping box.

Many years ago I had my Crack Research Team©® drill down on this subject and they reported back, after inquiries to a company that makes bubble wrap, that the bubbles are supposed to go on the inside — against the object to be protected — rather than the outside as was the case with my delivery.

I bet most people don't even think about which side goes where and just use the stuff regardless.

But you're not most people.
