Default New Uses for Aluminum Foil

Discover the hidden talents of this silvery wonder

Aluminum Foil as Wrinkle Remover
To get wrinkles out of silk, wool, and rayon clothes that canít take direct heat, place a piece of foil on your ironing board, then lay the garment flat over it. With the steam button down, pass the iron three to four inches over the fabric several times. Wet heat radiating from the foil helps smooth out wrinkles.

Aluminum Foil as Grilling Helper
Really hot grill bars equal dramatic grill marks on your porterhouse. To concentrate the heat and keep it from escaping, lay a sheet of foil over the grill for 10 minutes. Peel the foil off before cooking (it cools fast), scrunch it into a ball, and use it to scrape any residue or ash from the bars.

Aluminum Foil for a Clear TV Signal
If your DVD player is stacked on top of the TV (or vice versa) and the picture is fuzzy, the two electromagnetic fields may be commingling, confusing the signals. (This usually happens with plastic casings; with metal itís less likely.) Slip a sheet of foil between the machines to keep the fields separate.

Aluminum Foil as Paint Protector
Protect doorknobs and hardware in the kitchen and bathroom when youíre painting by wrapping foil around them to catch dribbles. The foil molds to the shape of whatever itís covering and stays firmly in place until the job is complete.

Aluminum Foil as Pie Crust Protector
To prevent a piecrust from burning while the filling cooks, make a foil collar to deflect heat. Take a piece of foil about 25 inches long, fold it into thirds lengthwise, and fasten the ends with a paper clip. Halfway into the baking, slip the collar over the crust. Leave it on until the pie is done.

Aluminum Foil as Glassware Scrubber
To get baked-on food off a glass pan or an oven rack, use dishwashing liquid and a ball of foil in place of a steel-wool soap pad, says Mary Findley, president of the cleaning-products developer Mary Moppins. Itís one way to recycle those used but perfectly good pieces of foil you hate to throw out.

You neglected to mention the fashionably reflective pointy hats that keep the aliens from reading the innermost secret thoughts in my mind!!

<----This one seems like an update of putting foil at the tip of the "rabbit ears" (grampa used to do that on his old B&W television!) LOL

I love your sense of humor, sweetie. So many people have a noticeable absence of that trait.

The SO is heavily into ghosts and supernatural stuff. It interests me greatly, but I must admit it also frightens me. So, although I only wish I would encounter one of your ghosties, I have to confess that if there were any possibility of an otherworld encounter, I'd have on my aluminum hat and matching undies!!

Edited to add this:

BTW, you've heard of the ghost in the machine? I got one!! The first time I tried to post my response, it told me it was too short!!!!
