Tin foil comes in handy on camping trips. You can place ingredients into a piece of tin foil that you have molded into a “packet” shape and hold it above the campfire. In only a short period of time, a delicious meal with be ready and clean up is a snap – simply throw the “tin foil packet” away. You can also take a piece of bread, put some cheese on it, close it with another piece of cheese, wrap it in tin foil and either hold it over the campfire or use an iron and iron the outside of the tin foil. A delicious grilled cheese sandwich will be ready in minutes. You can do the same thing in a hotel room for a quick snack – just use those cute little irons they have in the room. A great quick snack!
When you are painting doors or windows, cover the handles or knobs in tin foil to eliminate splatters and drips!
