There are many hacks that can turn your everyday objects into multi-use, effective tools for other things than they were intended for. Aluminum foil is one of those… When most people think of aluminum foil, they automatically think of it as something that can only be used for cooking and other small uses in the kitchen. However, there are many other ways that you can use aluminum foil, that isn’t necessarily limited to the kitchen. We have found some hacks that you’ll find useful and that can make your life easier in many ways. Next time you look at that simple aluminum foil roll sitting in your kitchen drawer, you’ll see a brilliant, multipurpose invention that can simplify your life. Let’s have a look at some hacks using aluminum foil.
Helps Keep Bananas Fresh
A banana’s special protective peel may help protect its flesh from insects but, the inside of the skin also has a reactive agent, which causes the banana to go bad quickly.
The agent reacts to the air that enters the banana through the stem area and ripens the banana faster. This is where aluminum foil comes in and saves the day. By covering the stem area with aluminum foil, your bananas will stay fresh for up to a week longer.
Useful For Dispensing Light
If you have a shelf or drawer that is deep and doesn’t get a lot of light because of it, then aluminum foil can solve this problem for you. Not only are dark shelves and drawers the ideal nesting place for cockroaches but it’s also difficult to see what’s inside.
To eliminate the darkness simply line your dark shelf or drawer with aluminum foil. The silver will reflect the light and will illuminate the space so you can see more clearly.
