Before I get to that part here are few tips on where you can use aluminum foil
- On the grill, I double layer some aluminum foil and I use it on my grill, I don't cook directly on the griddle, but you still get the griddle marks anyway, it helps with cleaning up after, I mean what cleaning up.
- Line the bottom of your oven with double layer aluminum sheet, it saves me time with cleaning up later in case anything drips, especially if your oven is not self cleaning
- Baking, when making a mud cake or other dense cake, I tend to wrap aluminum strips around the pan and also I made a aluminum dome, to cover the cake while baking for the certain period of time, 30 minutes or so, depends on size of the pan
- Cooking, make a pouch, put your veggies in and place them on the grill to steam, seamed side up; make a dome to cover your turkey while roasting in the oven to prevent drying out
- Freezer, I sometime freeze cake, to ensure it stays moist, I wrap in the plastic wrap and then in aluminum foil, wrapping shiny part out
- Photographic relfectors. I glued some aluminum foil to a foam board then cut it up in desired shapes, use to fill in light or reflect light
- I use small pieces wrapped around the stems to keep the birds away from my flowers
- I use some regular aluminum foil /shiny side/ and I gently polished the shower faucet to get rid of hard water deposits. It worked like a charm. No harmful chemical vapors and within the arm's reach...in the pantry and super cheap too. Same technique works on rust spots too.
