Life Hack: New Uses for Car Wax!

• Keep appliances fingerprint-free. Apply a thin coat of car wax to stainless-steel fridges and stoves. Buff clean to resist fingerprints and smudges.
• Give faucets a shine. Rub car wax onto kitchen and bathroom metal fixtures to keep them shiny and spot-free.
• Unstick hinges. Use car wax to lubricate the hinges of garden shears and scissors.
• Fix a skipping CD/DVD. Apply a small dab of car wax to a scratched disc and buff it clean using short strokes along the length of the scratch, not across it.
• Combat corrosion. Apply a thin coat of car wax to brass door knockers, mailboxes, and other outdoor fixtures to keep them from tarnishing.
• Fight mildew. After using your regular cleanser, apply a layer of car wax to the inside and outside of a shower door and buff off with a dry cloth to stave off mildew growth.
• Make drawers and windows easier to open. Rub a small dab of car wax onto the tracks of drawers and windows so they’ll slide more smoothly.
• Make a mirror fog-free. Rub a thin layer of car wax onto a bathroom mirror and buff it clean. Next time you step out of the shower, you’ll be able to see your reflection clearly.
