Most usually we all use the silver foil in the kitchen for wrapping and baking food. But aluminum foil has many uses you haven’t heard of. Read this article with 10 interesting ways of using the aluminum foil that can save you time and money.
Fresh bread can stay warm and tasty
If you want your bread to stay fresh, warm and tasty or you are going on a picnic use aluminum foil. Enfold the bread in napkins or kitchen paper, then place the fresh bread on top of some silver foil. It will reflect heat back into the bread
Save time when ironing
You can unfold a length of aluminum foil across the ironing board and you will not have to iron the two sides of your clothes. Place the foil on the board and the clothes over it, as usual. You will see that the clothes are ironed on the both sides. Also, you will finish in half the time. The silver foil is effective because the heat from the iron helps you iron the both sides right away. Isn’t that great?
Sharpen your old scissors
Fold a strip of silver foil until you make a thick strip and start cutting into the silver foil. Take a piece around 8 – 10 inches long and fold it lengthwise as many times as you can. You should end with a thick strip. Each time you cut with the scissors, the foil will grind against the blades and sharpen them with every cut.
Keep paints fresh and use them multiple times
A tin of paint will dry out and become useless if you don’t use it often. Silver foil can help you give the tin of paint a longer lifespan. Cut out a circle of the foil as big as the tin top. Place the circle foil piece onto the surface of the paint and blow into the tin to get some oxygen into it. Then place the lid.
