When you’re baking a cake for a dinner party, it’s always a bummer to find out that you don’t have any frosting bags left to frost your cake with. Well, cake or cupcake, if you’re in need of a candy foster but just can’t seem to find one, aluminum foil can help solve that problem for you.
Simply take a sheet of aluminum foil, wrap it into the shape needed and you now have a device that’s perfectly capable of making the best frosting for your delicious cake. Who knew that frosting cakes with aluminum could be so much fun!
Hide Worn Spots In Mirrors
When mirrors begin to wear out and lose their reflecting abilities in odd places, that definitely puts a "dent" in our day. Nobody needs a daily reminder that their mirror isn't as perfect as it used to be, but at the same time, nobody has the patience to go out and buy a new one. This is where aluminum foil could come in very handy due to its reflective ability.
When you have dents and cracks in your mirror, you can actually put a flat piece of aluminum right behind the glass. Just use some tape in the back to stick the aluminum to the mirror. Prepare to be amazed as the beautiful and perfect look it once had is restored to your mirror!
Keep Animals Away From Tree Barks
If you don't like animals eating and gathering around your tree trunks during the winter, it might be a good idea to use some aluminum foil. During long winters, animals often look for the best hiding spots they can find for both food and warmth. If you don't want to find rabbits, mice, and foxes hanging out near your trees, it might be a good idea to put aluminum foil around their trunks.
Simply take out a big chunk of aluminum, and wrap it tightly around your tree while attempting to make sure that it’s set as tightly as possible. The aluminum foil should be good for many days and weeks, so you will only need to replace it very infrequently.
Paint Your Door Without Worrying About Doorknobs
When painting a room, the first thing we do is cover stuff. The couch, the bed… no matter how careful we are, we wouldn’t want to leave it up to chance that paint might ruin our favorite foot rug. However, the most tricky part of a paint job focuses around the door, more specifically, the doorknob.
Aluminum is perfect for this job as it doesn’t let paint through and it is highly malleable allowing you to sculpt it into any shape you like. Simply take a sheet of aluminum and wrap it around your doorknob, then press it tightly so that it'll take its shape. After you’re done painting just take the aluminum foil off and admire your spotless work.
Get Better Wi-Fi Connectivity Using Aluminum Foil
In today's world, home Wi-Fi is a must. While you can have a great connection in the living room, there always seems to be a part of the house that doesn't quite pick up the signal. Naturally, we do our best to avoid visiting these parts of the house, since that would mean our favorite Netflix shows and YouTube videos won’t be able to stream properly.
What if you could make your Wi-Fi signal much stronger? Well, you can! By using a few sheets of aluminum foil, wrapping them into a long and thick wall of aluminum (like in the picture above), and placing the aluminum wall next to your Wi-Fi modem you can expand your Wi-Fi signal throughout the entire house!
