Use Aluminum Foil as a Fabric Softener

Aluminum foil (known as aluminum foil in North America) is aluminum prepared in thin metal leafs, with a thickness less than 0.2 mm / 0.008 in, although much thinner gauges down to 0.006 mm are common. Wikipedia®

The shiny side is a better conductor of heat and cold, so, when wrapping foods to keep in the refrigerator, wrap with the shiny side out so that warmer temperatures are reflected away from the food. Likewise, if you're cooking, it may take a little longer with the shiny side out.
