Useful Object of the Day: Tin Foil

Last year I learned about the awesome power of Dental Floss - it's one of those items you have lying around, yet never fully appreciate how useful it can be. Today, thanks to my brother, I've got a fresh perspective on yet another house hold item: tin foil (OK, technically, aluminum foil, but that's besides the point).

My brother dropped me a link to this article, which outlines 12 uses for tin foil. And here's another for 36 more.

When you think about it, tin foil is actually pretty amazing stuff. It's a sheet of metal that you can mold into anything you'd like. Amazing, right?

Finally, if nothing else, it's worth noting that you can indeed recycle tin foil in Arlington, VA. So, if you're not in the mood to take on static cling, polish your sliver or sharpen a pair of scissors, you can at least recycle the tin foil and help save the planet.
