What camping means to you?
Travel takes us out of our coziness and inspires us to touch, taste and try new life. It constantly challenges us, not only to adapt to and explore new surroundings, but also to engage with different individuals, to embrace new things as they come and to share new and meaningful experiences with friends and wife.
Aluminium foil. Every household has them – they’re cheap, readily available and easy to pack and store along with your gear. They are mainly used to cook food over a campfire and many campers take some for that function when they are outside. But a roll of aluminum foil has so many more uses than its main function, especially for camping!
Here are 5 incredible uses of aluminum foil for camping and outdoors:
Multifunctional kitchen tools
Heavy-duty foil is great for outdoor kitchen use. Use it to prepare foil-packed dinners over your campfire or to wrap up your leftover food. A nice feature of foil is that it is easy to shape anywhere. If you no longer have a bowl or plate to eat out or you need an extra “pan” to cook over a campfire, you can do that with foil! You can even make a makeshift cup, spoon, or larger bowl to collect rainwater.
Is the wind getting in the way of your campfire fun? Use a wall of foil to make a windbreaker and place it around the campfire to help break the wind. It will not only keep your campfire burning but also help you stay warm when the night is cool as it will radiate the heat back to you!
Bait for fishing
Is there a lake nearby where you camp and want to go fishing? If you can’t bring a bait, don’t worry – grab some aluminum foil, wrap some around the hook of your rod to make an instant and effective lure. Remember, fish are attracted to shiny objects!
A crumpled piece of aluminum foil can do so many wonders. You can sharpen dull knives or scissors with it. You can also use it to scrub dirty pots and pans to remove any grime or grime that regular dish soap can’t remove. You can also use a ball of foil to remove rust.
The reflective property of the foil makes it ideal to use as a signal for emergency situations. Simply tie a piece of foil to a tree branch or anywhere that can be easily seen to locate you from both the air and land.
The next time you go camping, bring some extra strong aluminum foil – you never know when it might come in handy! It can save you from a bad situation!
