Have you ever found yourself sweating at night in your sleeping bag? It’s a big problem because moisture tends to attract everything bad that you can find outdoors. One of the best ways to prevent the sweat from soaking into your sleeping bag and attracting unwanted wildlife and insects is to use some aluminum foil.
Just take a long piece of aluminum foil and lay it under you when you go to sleep. You’ll be surprised and amazed in the morning to find that your sleeping bag was completely insulated. Meaning that no moisture had left your sleeping bag. The aluminum also insulates the moisture away, keeping you dry at night. This is a great way to sleep tight in the wild!
Get Your Batteries to Work Again
Unlike most of our rechargeable devices, batteries do, unfortunately, need to be replaced every now and then. Even with new batteries, sometimes there is a small contact problem. This often results in something not working.
You can solve this by putting a bit of folded aluminum foil just between the end of your battery and the spring. Since aluminum is an electrical conductor, the extra reach just might be exactly what you need to get the parts touching and powering up your device. Enjoy!
Use Aluminum to Seal Plastic Bags
Plastic bags are one thing that everyone has at least a couple of lying around the house. The only problem with plastic bags is that they are not the best for storing food because they are not air-proof. You might have already guessed that this is where aluminum foil comes to the rescue!
By taking a long patch of aluminum, folding it across the open part of the bag, and then ironing it using a solid object - you get a perfectly sealed bag that will stay that way for a long time. If that's not cool enough, wait until you see the next amazing thing you can do with this useful metal.
Moving Furniture With Aluminum
The biggest culprits in the difficulty of moving furniture around are gravity and friction. There's nothing you can do about the former, but the latter can be largely solved using aluminum foil. Someone recently discovered that you can actually put a sheet of aluminum paper under each of your furniture piece’s legs (just like in the picture).
This will cause the furniture to lose much of the friction it has with the ground, making it much easier to move around the floor. Unfortunately, aluminum foil can’t help you carry furniture down the stairs unless you’re willing to use it as a slide, so you’re on your own when it comes to that.
Make Your Own Fish Bait From Aluminum
If you're sick of hanging worms and pieces of bread on the tip of your hook, or you just find that these baits don't quite do the job, a cheap and possible alternative you can use is actually aluminum foil. No joke — studies have shown that fish are attracted to shiny objects. One might even refer to this type of bait as "fish diggers".
What you do is put a piece of scrunched-up aluminum foil at the end of your fishing line, and the fish are automatically attracted to your bait due to the way that it sparkles and shines. We're not saying that fish are greedy money-grubbing creatures, just that they really like to check out and taste things that are shiny
