- Avoid paint splatters. Mold Reynolds Wrap around doorknobs when painting.
- Polish chrome. Use a piece of crumpled-up Reynolds Wrap to polish the chrome on car bumpers, strollers, highchairs, and playpens.
- Improvise a funnel. Double over a piece of Reynolds Wrap and roll into the shape of a cone.
- Insulate pet bedding. If you keep your pet’s bedding outdoors in cold weather, line the inside of the bedding box with Reynolds Wrap and then add the bedding. The aluminum foil will reflect your pet’s body heat and help keep her a tad warmer.
- Secure plant cuttings. Place Reynolds Wrap across the top of a glass jar filled with water. Poke holes in the foil and insert the cuttings securely in place. The foil also prevents the water from evaporating too quickly.
- Make a disposable palette. Mix paints on a piece of Reynolds Wrap.
- Clean tarnished silverware. Line a metal cake pan with Reynolds Wrap and fill with enough water to cover the silverware. Add two tablespoons baking soda per quart of water. Heat the water above 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the tarnished silverware in the pan so it touches the aluminum foil. Do not let the water boil. The hydrogen produced by boiling baking soda combines with the sulfur in the tarnish, removing the stains.
- Clean a barbecue grill. After barbecuing, place a sheet of Reynolds Wrap on the hot grill. The next time you use the barbecue, peal off the foil, crinkle it into a ball, and rub the grill clean, easily removing all the burnt food.
- Re-adhere a linoleum floor tile. Put a piece of Reynolds Wrap on top of the tile and run a hot iron over it several times to melt the glue underneath. Place several books on top of the tile until the glue dries completely.
- Prevent steel wool from rusting. Wrap the pad in Reynolds Wrap and store it in the freezer.
- Clean starch off an iron. Run the iron over a piece of Reynolds Wrap.
- Store wet paint brushes. Wrap the wet paint brushes in Reynolds Wrap and store them in your freezer. When you're ready to paint again, defrost the brushes for an hour or more.
- Store leftover paint. To prevent a layer of skin from forming over the paint surface, set the paint can on top of a sheet of Reynolds Wrap, trace around it, cut out a disc of foil, and place it on the paint surface before sealing the can closed.
