You’re an artistic person. That’s clear by the fact that you’ve gone this far into the article in looking for creative uses for aluminum. One fantastic way you can use aluminum foil to save money and improvise when you feel artistic is to grab a square of aluminum foil, fold it in a beehive pattern (or a simpler equivalent), and put some paint in each cell.
Congratulations! You are now the owner of a fully functioning paint palette that cost you nothing and took only 2 minutes to make. Another advantage of this aluminum paint contraption is that you don’t need to clean it, since you can just throw it away when you’re done.
Easily Scrape Off Brown Sugar
Brown sugar is a fantastic alternative to white sugar and is widely known to be a better and healthier alternative. The only problem with brown sugar is that it's a lot stickier than regular white sugar and tends to hang on to the edges of your containers. Now, if you have some aluminum foil at our disposal, all you need to do is to take a bit of aluminum, clump it into a razor-like contraption and start scratching away at the sticky brown sugar.
It will quickly soften up and be very easy to pick up and manipulate. There you go. Problem solved in just a few minutes with our trusty old metallic friend.
Protect Your Cars From Hackers
If you've got one of those brand new cars and your remote can turn on your vehicle or even just open the doors to it from afar, there's a chance that your car key has the ability to connect to the internet. This means that is also more prone to hacker attacks due to compromised internet connections.
Once you've determined that your car key has online connectivity, the best thing you can do to protect yourself from potential hacking and car theft is to simply cover your car remote with aluminum foil. This will block all external signals and completely protects the device from any access to hacking. The same applies to your phone if you’re trying to hide from the government, but that’s a topic for another entry.
Don’t Let Your Paintbrush Dry
Our final tip for painting enthusiasts is related to your trusty paintbrush. One of the most annoying things when you paint is having the paintbrush dry out during a short painting break. Dry brushes are very frustrating as they become very stiff and lower the quality of your painting.
Next time you take a painting break, take a rubber band and a piece of aluminum foil, then use the rubber band to hold the foil wrapped around the brush's hairs. All that's left is to put the paintbrush in the freezer and take it out a few minutes before you want to use it. This will ensure it remains fresh and useful for a long time
Fortify Your Paint Rollers With Aluminum
Sometimes we could swear that paint rollers have intentionally been made to be as durable as a piece of paper. By the end of a good painting session, your roller is usually far from being used for any future painting needs.
One thing that you can do to dramatically extend your precious roller's lifespan is to wrap it in aluminum foil between uses. This will prevent the paint from ruining your roller and it will remain looking just as good as it did the previous time.
