The aluminum foil is common in the kitchen where it’s used for wrapping food. While foil is popular here, it’s good to know that there are many other ways of using the foil. These other ways include:
Using it to make art
Due to its ease of cutting, the aluminum foil serves as a great material for kids to use in their art projects. Since you can easily bend it, you can use it to make almost any art product you might be interested in. To make the art products you should tear off a small piece of foil and turn it over the dull side. You should draw your design of interest on the dull side and the force of the pencil will push the foil up. This will cause the design on the shiny side to be raised and easy to see. If writing words, write them backward so that they can read normally on the shiny side.
Once you are done turn the foil over and if the design isn’t raised enough, press the pencil a bit harder. You should be cautious when pressing the pencil to avoid overdoing it. If the design is raised enough, decorate it with glue, crayons, and glitter.
Insulating your room with aluminum foil
Who thought a product that you use in the kitchen can be used to prevent heat from getting into your house? You should use the foil to insulate the areas where heat is more likely to come through. This includes the windows and doors. You should start by determining the size of foil you need where the size depends on the number of windows that you have.
You should then cut the foil you need for the door and window. For maximum protection, you should go 6 inches to 1 foot past the window or door’s height or width. You should use duct tape or any other sturdy adhesive to hold the foil in place. You can do the work by yourself or hire a professional to help you out.
These are some of the other uses of aluminum foil. Regardless of the reason, you are buying it, ensure that you buy it from a high-quality store. This is to increase your chances of buying high-quality foil. To achieve ideal results, properly cut it when necessary. For ideal results, use the regular pair of scissors to cut the foil.
