Great Uses for Aluminum Foil

Many of us keep aluminum foil around in our homes and it is no wonder why. It is great for covering up leftovers in a pinch, or for covering your baking sheet in order to keep food from sticking to it, but aluminum foil can actually be used for so much more than just covering pans and left overs. Here are just some of things that I came up with off the top of my head.

It's great for creating costumes.  For istance if someone wants to be a robot, they just need to cover some boxes with some tin foil and they have their selves a robot.  Don't forget the eyes. 

Emergency Gift wrapping.  If you have a gift for someone and you forgot to wrap it and you have just enough time to get there.  Wrap it in tin foil. No tape or scissors needed. 

Make a Hershey's Kiss hat. This can also be great for a costume.  Just shape the tin foil then glue, tape, or staple the kiss paper on the top.

Line Your Grill Grates:  I didn't even imagine doing this but I saw this on Reynold's Wraps web page where they actually laid alluminum foil on the grill grates and grilled on the foil.  This is wonderful for something like fish that usually sticks and falls apart on the grill. 

Make Grill Packets:  Packing up meat, fish, or poultry along with some veggies in a packet created using aluminum foil is a great way to cook an all in one meal. 

Clean your grill:  Speaking of grilling did you know that in a pinch some rumpled up foil can be used as a grill brush, while the grill is still warm, rub the foil along the grates to remove anything that might have stuck to them.

Sharpen Your Scissors:  Just layer up some foil about 6 layers deep, just a couple of small pieces torn and stacked will do it. Then cut it with the scissors it will sharpen them as they cut.

Rusty chrome:  Got some rusty chrome. Wad up so tin foil and go at the chrome with it.  It will clean off the rust.

Make a Solor Oven for camping:  I have only done this once and don't remember how, but there are instructions on line for this and it is quite a handy skill to know if you camp a lot. 

Use foil instead of tape on door knobs and other knobs to protect them when you are painting. 

Soften brown sugar:  Wrap hardened brown sugar in some foil, making a packet, then put it in a 350 degree oven for 5 minutes. The brown sugar will be all nice and soft and ready to use.  Only do this right before usine.
