8 Fabulous Ways to Reuse Aluminium Foil

Aluminium foil is probably one of the most versatile and useful mass-produced substances. People use aluminium foil for several purposes, such as covering a dish, as cover for pie crust or lasagna, etc. But the foil is hardly reused. You would be surprised to know that after washing the foil sheet, you can use it again. Aluminum foil is pretty much 100% recyclable, but before you do give it a second, third or fourth life with one of these reuses for it.
