Tip #1 Clean Rust Spots With Aluminum Foil

Use Aluminum Foil to clean rust off metal tools or other metal objects (it’s perfect for rust removal on the legs of your outdoor furniture for example). Just take a sheet off the roll, scrunch it up and rub the rust spots and stains with the ball.

This is ideal if you’ve got some rust spots on your metal tools. As you can see from the video above it takes just minutes to clean them up and will give them a whole new lease of life.

Tip #2 Replace A Missing Battery

You can even replace a missing battery with Aluminum Foil – this is really handy if you’ve got one battery still working.

Replace the tired one with a piece of foil folded up firmly to the same size of the battery. This takes just a few minutes and will save you dollars as well as the inconvenience of having to pop to the store to get a replacement battery.

Tip #3 Make A Frying Pan Non-Stick

Turn an ordinary frying pan into a nonstick pan quickly and easily – no more burnt on hard to clean off bits, particularly when you’re frying eggs.

Press a piece of foil firmly into the pan and fold edges over carefully to fit – then just crack your eggs on top of the foil and lift out with the foil to slide onto your plate.

Tip #4 Stop Scratches On Wooden Floors

  • Avoid scratches on your wooden floor when you’re moving furniture by simply placing a piece of foil under the feet of the furniture. It will slide smoothly and no scratches!
