If you are a student, a bachelor or a girl who is always losing weight, you will probably find them in your home - cans from Diet Coke, other soda or beer. No, don't think anything like that: the trash should be thrown away. But sometimes even garbage can be put to good use. For example, make a fish hook, a peeler, a burner, or even a Wi-Fi signal booster out of tin cans.
Life hacker and green energy advocate OpenGreenEnergy offers interesting options for recycling everyday things. It turns out that even a regular soda can can be a complete survival kit in the wild. Or in conditions of poor internet speed. After all, from a tin can you can make:
1. Fishing hook
It is enough just to tear off the tin loop, cut off a small fragment and sharpen the edge.
2. A knife for peeling vegetables
Tear off the loop, cut out a tin circle with a "neck". Bend the tip slightly to make it easier to hold the knife, and also bend the "neck" protrusion a little more so that it grips the peel better. Be careful not to cut yourself!
3. Lamp or candlestick
Make an incision across the jar to "open" it, as in the photo. When doing this, do not cut the top and bottom. After all, you will put a candle at the bottom, and you can hang the candlestick by the loop on the top wherever you want.
You will need two cans. Cut off the bottom from each, slightly bend one of them to insert into the second.
Use a knife or other sharp object to make several holes in the upper part: one, in the center, larger and several small ones.
Take a napkin or piece of fabric and twist it to make a wick.
Now pour some oil into the burner, soak the "wick" in it and place it in the hole. Can be set on fire.
5. Wi-Fi router signal booster
You will need two cans again. Tear off the loops. Cut off the bottom of each and cut across to "open" the jar, as in the candlestick example.
Put each can through the hole on the antenna and secure with electrical tape. Check your connection speed before and after. For the author of a life hack, loading accelerated with 7.5Mb up to 9.86Mb per second. Impressive, right?
