An alternate use for a hotel iron – Hotel tip

Hotel irons have more uses than just getting the wrinkles out. Pack a few feet of aluminum foil in your luggage, and you’ve got all the tools you need for cooking and reheating food.

Grilled cheese is simple to make! Just wrap it in foil and lay the iron on top of it.

Irons also work great for reheating food that you may have brought back from a restaurant. Anything that you can spread between aluminum foil can be reheated. I’ve reheated everything from pancakes to shrimp scampi for a late night snack. I’ve used this trick for years.

Tip: It works best when you turn off the steam option on the iron.
