Great Uses for Car Wax
A good quality car wax can be used for lots of things around the house. Applying a quick coat of wax can make cleaning a breeze. Here are some rules to follow:
• Apply on surfaces between 55 and 85 degrees out of direct sunlight
• Apply the wax to a soft cotton damp cloth and then apply to the surface
• Remove with a clean soft cloth
• Wax should be reapplied when water beading diminishes.
PLACES YOU CAN USE WAX IN THE HOME:
• Apply to the sink, shower surround (fiberglass and faux marble) glass shower doors. DO NOT apply to shower or tub floors it will make them super slippery.
• Apply to chrome and metal surfaces in the bath to protect and make cleaning easier
• Make sure surfaces are clean and dry when you apply the wax and rub on a small amount. Once it dries to a haze you can buff it off.
Apply to stainless steel, porcelain or any sink to keep clean. Apply to the outside of the grill to make it easier to clean. Be sure not to do in hot sun. This will protect from fingerprints, oxidations rust and the elements.
Apply to metal, plastic or molded furniture to protect and add shine.
If you have laminate countertops like Formica® apply the car wax in a thin coat and buff when dry. It will protect the counter from stains and make it easier to clean.
Kid’s bikes, toys, skate boards to protect and make cleaning easier.
Sara sent me a question hoping I can give her the recipe for treated dust cloths. Treated dust cloths are an awesome way to dust without building up spray polish which will get smeary and attract dirt. Use your favorite all- purpose cleaner or dish soap to make up a bucket of sudsy water. Use about a gallon of water and about 4 or 5 good squirts of product. Add a couple of tablespoons of turpentine. Toss in some clean cotton dust cloths, or washcloths and stir so that they are saturated. Let them soak eight to 10 hours, then wring them out and allow them to air dry. Do not put in the dryer. Once they are dry, store in a covered container – an old coffee can works – and they are ready to use. You can also mix 2 cups of hot water with a cup of lemon oil. Dip lint less cloths into the solution. Squeeze thoroughly and air dry. Use these to dust without using furniture polish. They are like using a spray dust product.
