Aluminum Foil Use Tips

Aluminum foil, isn't just for baking any more. I want to share with you, some tips, for using aluminum foil.

Did you ever reach for your brown sugar, after its been open, and it's as hard as a brick? Well here is how to make it soft once again. Take some aluminum foil, and place some of your brown sugar in it. Preheat your oven to 300 and cook the brown sugar for only five mins. And you will have soft brown sugar.

Did you know you can also use aluminum foil for fabric softener. Yup, you can, just roll some aluminum foil up into a ball, toss it in the dryer, and your foil will be the new fabric softener you ran out of. It will attract all the static from your clothes.

The aluminum foil will also help you improve your ironing board. Just remove your ironing board cover and place some aluminum foil at the top of the board. Then you will replace the cover. By doing this the foil will hold heat from your iron, and this will help you get a better press on your clothes, not only on top but on the bottom as well.

Don't have a sharpener for your scissors, well get out the aluminum foil and let it do the job. Using several layers of aluminum foil will sharpen your scissors by cutting through the layers. This is a cheap and quick way to get the job done.

Ah, grilled cheese, this can be messy. But not if using aluminum foil. Make your sandwich as you normally would. But after your done put it in aluminum foil and make a pouch. Then take and place in a cast iron pan and press on both sides, and you will have the perfect grill cheese.
