Re: When you cannot open packaging

Thank you.  It isn't QVC that I have a problem with it is the United States postal system that they use.  If my package will not get back to QVC, what recourse do I have?  It's bad enough getting orders to my home within two-weeks.

I believe this is a first................ complaining about how well an item is packaged.  

 

Cutting along the edge of the plastic bag with scissors works well for me.  If you need to return the item in the plastic bag, just make a small fold and tape it with packing tape, and vola!!!!  I have done this for years.  It works well.

 

 

Saving time & trouble. If I offend you, I am sorry.

Great minds think alike, thats what I do...open the bag with scissors, fold it and tape it with package mailing tape to make sure its secure.....

      I do not have so many issues with transportation packaging, but I have a really hard time opening some of the bottles of liquids - like serums.

     The tops are vacuum packed with clear shrink wrap.  I understand that they are wrapped so that they won't leak.

Those screw tops are usually very small and I usually end up using some little, pointed, sharp scissors.  But I have cut into my fingers at times. 

      I truly have said some nasty words trying to get that da*m wrap off!! 


@corita,  I have found my blade foil cutter for wine effective for being able to open many shrink wrapped bottles.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?
