Why are tin foil and aluminum foil used interchangeably? They are not the same thing. One is aluminum the other is obviously tin, amirite?

"Lots of people also refer to “aluminum foil” as “tin foil,” because the same product that is now mostly made of aluminum used to be mostly made from tin, and many of people still sometimes just use the older name anyway!"
