10 Ways Wax Paper Solves Your Most Stubborn Household Problems

Cleaning & Organization | HGDI ADMIN

If your latest birthday cake was a Pinterest fail or you had to throw away yet another rusty garden tool, then pull out the wax paper from the drawer and get to work.

We’ve outlined ten new uses for wax paper that can solve your most stubborn household problems. At an average cost of $1.59 for 75 square feet, this may just be the best bargain around. 

  1. To prevent fingerprints on chrome, rub down your faucets with wax paper. The surfaces will stay shiny and repel prints and spots. 
  2. For an easy way to clean garden tools, ball up a bit of wax paper and rub it along the tool. The roughness scrubs away dirt and rust, while wax protects the surface. 
  3. Line silverware drawers with wax paper to catch crumbs, oil and dust. The paper attracts debris and keeps the dirt away from your forks, spoons, knives and utensils. 
  4. For perfectly legible cakes, pipe the icing or chocolate on wax paper until you get it right. Freeze for at least 30 minutes. You’ll then be able to life the words and decorations right off of the paper with a knife or spatula and on to your cake for perfect results. 
  5. Avoid wasting that half finished bottle of wine. Wrap the cork with wax paper and insert it back into the bottle. Not only will this create a nice air tight seal, but this method will also contain any cork pieces and make it easier to remove the cork a second time. 
  6. Every time your car’s antenna retracts, it drags dirt into the car, which can clog up the works and affect reception. Rub the wax paper on the antenna to keep it working well. 
  7. Does your iron drag and snag your clothes? Rub a piece of wax paper over a cold iron before you begin. The wax will not get on the clothes, but it will help the iron glide smoothly. 
  8. A nifty funnel can be created for transferring spices or other dry ingredients to bowls or containers. This method works wonders for filling salt shakers. 
  9. One of the hazards of storing colored candles is the way the color can rub off or get absorbed into linens and wood furniture. First wrap the candles with wax paper, and all of your items will stay safe.
  10. Rub wax paper on door jams and edges to ease a door that sticks and prevent it from getting stuck in the frame.
