Tuffy Heavy Duty Foil
Most households use aluminum foil as a way to line cookie sheets, you’re tapping just a fraction of its potential. These genius aluminum foil hacks can save you time, money and effort.
Aluminum foil hacks extend far beyond keeping your best cookie sheets clean. You can actually prevent children from making a mess of their clothes by wrapping the bottom of an ice-cream cone with a piece of aluminum foil before handing it to them. Ta-da—no drips!
Speed your ironing
When you iron clothing, a lot of the iron’s heat is sucked up by the board itself—requiring you to make several passes with the iron to remove wrinkles. To speed things up, put a piece of aluminum foil under your ironing board cover. This foil will reflect heat back through the clothing, smoothing the wrinkles more quickly.
When you’re painting a door, aluminum foil is great for wrapping doorknobs to keep paint off them. Overlap the foil onto the door when you wrap the knob, then runs a utility knife around the base of the knob to trim the foil. That way you can paint right up to the edge of the knob. In addition to wrapping knobs on the doors that you’ll paint, wrap all knobs that are along the route to where you will clean your hands and brushes.
Tuffy Pastel Pegs
If you’ve got a bag full of clothes pegs, you’ve got handy little helpers for doing all sorts of things around the house
Don’t forget you can use these little tools for all your usual household tasks: forget spending money on food bag clips and use pegs to seal. This is ideal for bags of veg in the freezer. Short of a hand towel rail? Try two pegs joined by a string which can be looped over doors and handles.
Stop headphones getting tangled
Stop in-ear headphones, USB cables or even phone charger cables from getting tangled by winding them around a clothes peg. Traditional wooden clothes pegs – or plastic pegs of a similar design – have a large notch and a small notch in each of the peg’s prongs. You’ll see that these notches make an oval shape when the peg is closed. Clip one end of the cable into the smaller notch and then, keeping the peg open a little, wind the cable around the peg length-ways so that it passes between the prongs at each end of the peg as you wind it. Tuck the free end of the cable through the centre of the coil you’ve created to keep it secure.
Laundry stain reminder
Keep a bag of clothespins in the laundry room. When you have an item that needs special attention before it’s washed, clip a clothespin to it. That way, if you forget, you’ll be reminded as you start to put it in the washer.
Hold a tablecloth in place on a picnic table. Clip the sides of the tablecloth together under the table and it won’t blow off in the wind.
Tuffy Small Freezer Bags
Having freezer bags in your kitchen can save you more bucks than you can count! These are one of the most useful items you can keep in your kitchen. They’re not overly expensive, and there are so many different ways you can use them!
Softer Ice Cream
Put your cartons of ice cream into freezer bags before storing them. The freezer bag shields the ice cream from oxygen, preventing the ice cream from getting too hard or forming crystals on the surface. When you pull your ice cream out of the bag, it’ll be creamy and scoop-able every time!
Tuffy Large Freezer Bags
Use a freezer bag as a “mixing bowl.” Just put your ingredients inside, seal it up tightly, and smush the ingredients around with your hands. (This is especially useful when you’re camping, because a freezer bag is much easier to pack along than a big bowl.
