If you’re like most people, you use aluminum foil to line a roasting pan and cover your leftovers. You may even use a crumpled up piece of foil to give your pots and pans a good scour. But aluminum foil has dozens of other uses that can save you time and money. Here are 8 easy ways you can use and reuse aluminum foil that will make your life easier. 1.Improve Your Wi-Fi Signal If you’re the one who’s not satisfied with the speed of your Wi-Fi or want to increase router Wi-Fi strength, then with aluminum foil, you can increase and strengthen your Wi-Fi signals. Wrap foil to a rectangular cardboard, curve it and place it behind the antenna of your router. This aluminum foil will reflect the wireless signals into the direction that you wanted to be. 2.Fix a battery connection Over time, the little spring that holds the batteries in place within electronics such as flashlights can loosen. Take a small square of aluminum foil, about an inch squared, and fold it a few times, forming a small pad. Place the pad between the battery and the spring. The foil will keep the battery in place while completing the circuit. 3.Sharpen your scissors If you need to sharpen your scissors and get rid of rust, Fold several layers of foil and Cut smoothly through the foil ensuring all the blade touches the foil with each cut. Repeat several times, check the sharpness of scissors and repeat if needed. 4.Remove static electricity from your clothes Have you ever noticed dust particles getting attached to your clothes while drying your washed clothes? This happens because of static charge. The simple solution is to put some foil balls in the washer together with the laundry. After washing, your clothes won’t accumulate electricity and attract dust and hairs. 5.Move furniture easily Unless you're the Incredible Hulk, moving heavy furniture across carpet is difficult, back straining process. Make the process a little easier with a bit of aluminum foil. Just stick it under the furniture's legs and it should drag across the carpet much easier. 6.Protect food from burning In order to protect food from sticking in the frying pan, put a layer of foil at the bottom. This is also how you can cook without oil. 7.Seal plastic bags Fold a piece of aluminum foil over the opening of the bag. Make sure the aluminum foil covers all the plastic you intend on ironing so the iron does NOT come into contact with the actual plastic. Now run the hot iron over the foil for a minute or two, allowing the plastic to melt and seal. Let cool and remove the aluminum foil. 8.Iron clothes from both sides at once Put some aluminum foil under the clothes before ironing. Foil becomes hot really fast, and this is how your clothes can b

Human-beings consume billions of bananas each year, making this peculiar yellow-fruit one of the most popular foods in the world. However, those billions of bananas we eat result in billions of banana-peels which are typically thrown away. Did you know banana-peels make one of the best fertilizers out there? I didn’t until I started researching it. Turns out, banana-peels are a rich source of nutrients your plants crave: Potassium, phosphorus, and calcium, along with a host of other minerals your plants need. Here are 6 ways to recycle your banana-peels and never throw them away. 1.Compost Probably the most popular and easiest use for banana-peels is to mix them into the compost-pile. Peels add potassium and phosphorus to compost which promote root-development and overall plant health when incorporated into garden-soil. 2.Brew-some-compost-tea If you don’t have a compost-pile, you can still use banana-peels to feed your garden. Simply drop a few peels into a-bucket full of water and let it sit for a couple of days to make compost “tea.” Mix one-part banana-peel compost “tea” with five-parts fresh-water and feed this mineral-rich mixture to your plants about once per-week in lieu of your normal watering. The added potassium and phosphorus will give your plants a-boost to keep them growing-strong. 3. Dried-Peel-Fertilizer you can dry your banana-peels and grind them into a fertilizer. If you only have a few peels to use-up, but want to use them effectively on many plants, this is a great option. Add to your garden-soil directly, either by sprinkling as a side dressing or gently incorporating into the-dirt. 4.Create-a-banana-peel-spray this spray is a fertilizer that also uses eggshells for a calcium-boost and Epsom-salt for magnesium. To create the fertilizer spray, you’ll need banana-peels, egg-shells, Epsom-salt, and water. Dry the banana-peels and egg-shells, then once they’re dry, grind them together. Add the peels and shells to a spray-bottle, along with the Epsom-salt, and fill the sprayer to the top. Spray on your-plants as needed. 5.Livestock-Feed Humans are not the only ones who enjoy bananas. Livestock like chickens, rabbits, and pigs will enjoy ground-up dried banana-peels added to their feed. Just make sure to clean the peels of any wax or pesticides before drying and offering them to pets or livestock. And 6. Create-banana-peel-vinegar Blueberries and other acid loving plants will enjoy a treat of banana-vinegar. Put your peels in a mason-jar, and cover with enough water so they’re submerged. Cover with cloth and rubber-band or a loosely fitting-top. Let the mixture sit for a week while the good-bacteria does its job and unlocks the nutrients in the peel. After a week, remove the peels, and allow the water to sit, covered, until the mixture ferments into a vinegar. This can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks, depending on conditions such-as temperature. If the mixture seems especially potent, dilute it with water right before using so you don’t accidentally burn your plants.

http://hikinglady.com Hiking Lady tests Nikwak Wash, and sees how well it works on an old pair of rain pants and an old ski jacket.
One of the most common questions we get is, "can I wash my gear and how?" Yes, you can!
CEO Chris Pew and Head of Marketing Shay Huskey are hanging out at Spin Laundry Lounge in Portland, OR explaining the few simple steps to washing and cleaning your waterproof breathable gear. Following this process will extend the life and maintain the performance of your outerwear.
Step by step -
1. Gather your dirty gear, your detergent and a washer and dryer.
2. For detergent, we recommend using a product specifically formulated for outdoor gear like Nikwax or a mild or eco-friendly detergent like Nelly's. These tend to not have a lot of additives or perfumes that will form a residue on the outside of your garment.
3. Next, before popping your garment in the washer you're going to want to close all the zipper openings or velcro tabs to make sure nothing tears during the wash cycle. Also, don't turn the garment inside out since you'll be cleaning the outside of the fabric.
4. Before washing, you're going to want to rinse the detergent compartment to clear away any leftover dirt or other residues.
5. Put your garment in the washer and add 100ML of Nikwax for 2 garments.
6. Select warm water (If using Nikwax), then push START!
7. Once the garment is done washing, pop it in the dryer on regular heat and dry until warm to the touch.
8. Once it's done drying, throw it on, get outside and keep it thumbs up!
If you take care of your gear it'll take care of you, which is good for the environment and your pocket.
