Aluminum foil isn’t just for wrapping up your leftovers! Take a look at the list below for a few innovative hacks:
Make Brown Sugar Softer
Have you found yourself baking your favourite cookies and then reaching for the brown sugar only to find that it’s hardened? Wrap a chunk of brown sugar in aluminum and bake it in the oven for 5 minutes at 300F.
Move Furniture Around Without Damaging your Floors
Put aluminum foil underneath the legs of your furniture and then slide it to where you want it to be. This will protect your floors from scratches and prevent you from spending money on protective pads.
Make a Custom-Sized Cake Pan
If you don’t have the right size cake pan that a recipe calls for, fear not! Use a thicker foil to create the desired shape.
Prevent Cuttings from Tangling as they Grow
Cover cuttings with a sheet of foil. Poke a few holes, and you cuttings will grow untangled.
Scare the Birds Off
Hang pieces of aluminum foil from a tree or garden. Birds are often scared of shiny materials.
Here’s something we’re sure you haven’t done in a while—if ever! To clean the plate, place the iron on high over a sheet of foil with salt on top of it. The abrasive nature of the salt will clean up any dirt on the plate of your iron.
