The Wonder of Aluminium Foil

What is so wonderful about aluminium foil ? You might think that its utility is quite limited and that it is most commonly used to wrap-up or store your food, or sometimes to remove manicure gel. Well, if that is the case, let us show you how aluminium foil can make your daily activity so much easier. Over 40 new uses has been discovered ! In the next section, we have chosen for you the most helpful ones and categorized them into 3 types of house activities. Let’s check them out.

2. Cleaning

Bring back the shiny part of your items

 
You can easily polish your silver items easily by using aluminium foil, hot water, baking soda and salt. Check this blog to see how.
You can also wipe off the rust from metal just by using aluminium foil and water.

Take off the stubbornly sticky food

 
Just ball-up some aluminium foil to scrub off the stain and your cooking pots are as good as new.

3. Technology

Boost the heat

 
Improve your heat radiator, free of charge, by making your own heat reflectors using aluminium foil (with the shiny side of the foil facing out). The heat waves will be reflected by the foil into the room instead of being absorbed by the wall behind the radiator.
You can also gain time in ironing by putting a long aluminium foil on your ironing board. By doing this, you’ll be able to iron both the front and the back of the clothe at the same time.

Small-size battery for every device


Now you don’t need to worry about the size of your battery compartment anymore ! Just fold a small size of aluminium foil to fill the void.

As you can see, aluminium foil has more utilities than you thought ! And the list isn’t finished yet : you can sharpen your scissors with it, lifeomove easily your furniture and many more.

Does Coke Really Clean Pennies?

So many myths make their rounds in our conversations; you can jump at the last second to survive an elevator crash, or that no one can lick their elbow. But here at SMC, we are here to confirm the ultimate urban myth – coke does indeed clean pennies.

But how is this possible you may ask – how doesn’t the coke also corrode our digestive system? Carbonated (fizzy) soft drinks contain carbonic acid that is often used to remove rust and other types of corrosion from metals. Corrosion happens when the metal reacts with oxygen and the effect is different on different metals, such as rust on iron or tarnish on copper. But, the acid in fizzy drinks is weaker than the gastric acid already in your stomach which is used to break down food.

Take a look here to see it in action:

Other uses of coke are vast:

  • In many states (in the USA) the highway patrol carries two gallons of coke in the truck to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.
  • Removing grease from clothes
  • Basting a ham
  • To remove rust from car parts
  • To clean a toilet
