Cool Uses for Aluminum Foil

Sharpen Scissors

Did you know you can sharpen dull scissors with aluminum foil? Simply fold a piece of aluminum foil in half several times five to six times. Cut through the aluminum foil with your scissors several times to sharpen the blades.

Try out your newly sharpened scissors on a piece of paper. If they still aren’t sharp enough, repeat the process again!

Scrub Stainless Steel Pots

Have you run out of scrub pads? No problem! Simply crumple up a couple pieces of aluminum foil to scrub dirty stainless steel pots.

Soften Brown Sugar

Brown sugar can quickly harden when exposed to air. To soften up hardened brown sugar, simply wrap up a hardened piece in aluminum foil and place in the oven at 300°F (150°C) for five minutes.

Keep Pets off Furniture

Do your pets make your furniture their comfy beds when you aren’t home? You can easily keep them off the couch with a couple of pieces of aluminum foil. Place a piece of aluminum foil on the cushions of your couch before leaving the house. Pets won't like the crinkly sound of the foil when they try to jump up on the couch!
