4. Keep cats and dogs away from certain areas by putting foil down—most of them dislike walking on it

5.   To keep birds and deer away, hang strips of foil on strings in the garden.

6. What else to do with used foil: Wrap leftovers in used foil, but if the foil has come in contact with raw meat, do not reuse it for other food purposes.
