    Who would have thought? Think I'll make a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch while I am sewing. That way I don't have to stop and go to the kitchen. Very inventive.

    My main use for foil is to cover celery and other veggies with it. Makes them last and last. Don't know why, it just does.

    Cool! I wonder if you need to use a new sheet of foil in every load. If not, that sure would cut down on the expense of fabric sheets.

    What I want to try is the fabric softener,
    Using the stuff you spray in the dryer not only makes me itch, the scent gives me a headache.

    It does work on scissors. I've used foil to shapren scissors and punches for years. That and wax paper to unstick them.

    Here is another thought...if it will sharpen scissors, what would it do for our rotary blades???

    Thanks! My mom is allergic to the dryer sheets. I'll try the aluminum foil ball on her clothes.

    My DH is sceptical about the scissor sharpening. My son has done the cheese toastie thing, made me laugh loads when he showed me.

    I have used it for scissors. Not my quilting ones, and it seemed to work great!

    My mother showed me how to make grilled cheese sandwiches with a iron many (many) years ago so I could make a quick meal my college dorm room. Unlike kids dorm rooms today we didn't have microwaves and refrigerators.

    I love the idea of replacing dryer sheets. I will definitely give that a try.
