New Uses for Aluminum Foil

Tricks for making use of every shiny sheet of aluminum foil.

Good idea! No more oops! moments when painting, if you cover doorknobs and hardware with aluminum foil.

Another painting trick: cover doorknobs with aluminum foil to prevent the "oops" that inevitably comes when you swipe beyond that circle of painter's tape you carefully placed around the base. Genius!

painting tip / aluminum foil as fixture protector - the foil molds to the shape of whatever it's covering and stays firmly in place until the job is complete. Brilliant!- a great idea! I might use a mixture of painter's tape and aluminum foil, depending on how many straight lines/curved edges I have
