    Default What to do with half a roll of Reflectix

    Ok I have made (6) pot cozies, (2) Nalgene Water Bottle cozies, and a cozy for my bottle gas lantern and I still have half a roll left. I even gave a few feet to someone on here. What can I make now? I am leaning towards some sort of armor suit for the house cat.

    Make a sun shade for your car windshield. I bought Reflex for that and used the scraps to make a bunch of cozies.

    Now that is funny and I haven't a clue what MLB is other than Major League Baseball.

    If you have radiators for heat in your home you can place it behind them to reflect the heat.

    I immediately had the same thought.

    Foil hats are pretty sweet though. Damn the man!

    Take some sandpaper and scuff up the shiny surfaces a bit and you have a very light sleeping pad.Otherwise you will just sllde off....

    I enjoyed my Feflectix sit pad--just stuff it into an outside pocket and you have a warm dry place to sit on a cold rainy day. Or: https://whiteblaze.net/forum/show...1502-Reflectix

    You can make a decent full-length cold-weather sleeping pad with it. Use it under your regular pad to add some R value in winter.

    If you live in a house with accessible water piping or ductwork, you can always use it for its intended purpose.

    I thought about a Reflectix kilt but the 16"length would be a little short for my modesty. I think I will just make foil pouches with Velcro closures

    Some folks I've seen also insulate a nalgene type bottle, I am wanting to do that one as well.

    Maybe make some camp shoes/booties. like puffy down slippers.

    Try making a cozy for Zip-Lock bags i have made a couple and their just as easy to make as a pot cozy. do you use a tarp if so you can make a ground sheet to lay directly on the ground with your pad on top of it.
