Today we put aluminum foil in the spotlight. Most of us use it for cooking and packing leftover food, but did you know that this kitchen file can also do more? Aluminum foil can fulfill a whole series of tasks around the house. It saves you time and money because it works as an alternative to other tools.
We teach you three different ways to put aluminum foil to work effectively. Just don’t forget that the foil can be sharp around the edges and you can end up with painful cuts if you are not careful. If you want to spend less time ironing your clothes, aluminum foil is your best friend! Place a long piece of aluminum foil under the cover of the ironing board. Make sure the shiny side of the foil is pointing up!
Then iron your clothes as usual. The heat from the iron is reflected back through the aluminum foil to the bottom of your clothing, so that the effect of both sides is simultaneously ironed. Ideal right? When chrome objects get (rust) spots, you can sand them away with some crumpled aluminum foil. Make a ball and dip it in a little water, then rub it over the affected area.
This method also works well on rusty chrome that can be found on bicycles and cars. Oh, and rumor has it that foil dipped in Coca Cola achieves an even better end result!How often do you sharpen your scissors? Probably not often enough! Change that habit by bringing those blunt knives back to life with aluminum foil. Take a piece of foil and start cutting. Do this around 30 times and your scissors will be as sharp as never before!
