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

We completely remodeled our 3 bathrooms, so I decided to setup a camera to take time-lapse video of the entire work done in the master bathroom. I used a Nikon D7000 with a 10.5mm fisheye lens mounted on a Gorilla Grip tripod attached to a ventilation grill. I took a picture every 30 seconds during the 34 days of the remodel, for a grand total of 17,970 pictures.
When the family and I moved to Land O Lakes, we moved into a brand new subdivision with many houses still being built. With an empty lot right across the street from us, I set a camera in the boy's window and started taking pictures. Over the course of 4 months I took about 400 pictures. I then cropped and categorized the photos, trimmed the collection down to about 300 photos, and created a time lapse photography presentation of the construction process using a FREE program from Microsoft, called PhotoStory, and put the process to music performed by DJ The Joker, called "The Way I Build My House".
The Danish company VIPP (famous for its iconic 1939 wastebasket, now in the MOMA) has created a prefab tiny home designed down to the last detail (flashlight included). Their 592-square-foot “plug and play getaway” wasn’t designed to blend into nature, but to float above it; fifty thousand pounds of glass and steel serve as a frame for the surrounding landscape. VIPP designer Morten Bo Jensen explains that the shelter wasn’t designed as a piece of architecture, but an industrial object. The prefab structure is built in a factory and the four modules are transported by truck to the site. The shelter can be constructed in 3 to 5 days using just bolts for the modules and 9,000 screws for the steel plates. The small prefab can house 4 people: 2 on a daybed and 2 in a loft bedroom. The floor-to-ceiling glass walls slide open and closed with mechanical rollers, designed to move the 400 or 500-kilo doors with ease. “We kind of like this idea that you just grab it and slide it open,” explains Jensen, “instead of motorized solutions that would be more different from our philosophy of very mechanical products that just last for a long time.” https://www.vipp.com/en/shelter/the-vipp-shelter/ Original story: http://faircompanies.com/videos/view/vipp-shelter-tiny-prefab-as-precise-industrial-era-appliance/
