Aluminium foil

Before we get into this trick, let’s talk about aluminium foil some more! For example, did you know that there is no reason whatsoever for one side of the foil being shiny and the other being dull? Many people think the two sides are different from one another, but that turns out to be false. It’s been said that the dull side is a better conductor because the surface is flatter. That would mean the shiny side retains heat better, making it more useful when preparing meat or fish in the oven. It might sound like it could be true, but it’s not at all! One side being dull and the other shiny is nothing more than a result of the manufacturing process. That’s all!

Electric charge

Putting aluminium foil into your washing machine or dryer won’t damage either of the machines. It will cause our clothes to no longer be static because the foil absorbs all of the electric charge. Because of this, fluff and dirt won’t cling to your clothes as easily.
