Unusual Uses For Everyday Items

Dacker in Mexico



I am Dacker Thicke and today I’d like to share unusual uses for tin/aluminum foil.

Softening brown sugar:

I hate it when my sugar gets stuck in a rock hard lump. All you have to do is cover it in tin foil and put it in the oven at 350 for 5 minutes and voila usable sugar.

Save your pie crust:

I love to bake, but I hate it when pie crusts get brown and hard before the rest of the pie. Here’s a trick I learned cover the crust in tin foil if it gets too brown and it will slow the rate it cooks, no more burnt crust for you.

Grill Marks on Steak:

A perfect steak has those wonderful grill marks on it but they are so hard to achieve. Cover your grill in tin foil to get it really hot, once you take it off and put your steak on the grill it will have perfect grill marks on it, umm hear that sizzle.

Tarnished Silver:

Have dull silver? Line a pan with tin foil, fill with water add a tablespoon of salt then drop in your silver, wait a few minutes and rinse them, they will be looking just like new.

Easy Platter:

Got company coming over but no platters for snacks? Just cover some cardboard with tin foil and serve your snacks on it looks just like a silver platter.

Stay tuned more household tips coming soon. Don’t forget to browse the rest of the page for links to my books and other writing.
