Tin Foil Hacks You Need In Your Life

Whether you call it tin foil, aluminum foil, or alu-mini-um foil (we see you, UK), the stuff is beyond useful. We already know that it can conduct heat while protecting your potatoes from getting too charred on the barbecue. We know that it can keep your cooking sheets clean. We also know that you can fashion it into a silly restaurant birthday hat in a pinch.

If you’re only using tin foil for cooking, you need to take a look at this list. From getting better Wi-Fi to protecting your plants, tin foil can do it all.

Do you know about those iron-on patches that work great to stylishly fix a hole in your jeans? Well, the patches get pretty sticky when they got hot, and you only want them to stick to your clothes, not to your ironing board.

Stick a small piece of aluminum foil on the back side of the hole before ironing. That way, when you iron on the patch, it won’t stick to any excess fabric or your ironing board.
