Who doesn’t love a cleaning tip that makes your life easier, so you can spend less time performing drudgery, especially in the kitchen? Wax paper is the solution. It’s not just for the kitchen; in fact, you can use it in many areas of the home that are hard to reach, such as closet shelves, the bathroom, utility room, pantry, or laundry room. You can even use it in bedrooms and guest rooms.
In this article, we will share wax paper hacks that will make your daily cleaning chores a breeze.
10. Keep Shelves Clean with Wax Paper
Place a piece of waxed paper on top of a hard-to-reach shelf or hard-to-see area of the kitchen. Lay down a sheet of wax paper and dirt or other particles will not stick to the surface. If you need to clean the area, all you need to do is fold up the wax paper, toss it, and lay down a new sheet.
If you have a kitchen fan that is blowing the wax paper that you have laid down, then you’ll need to adhere it to the shelf. Use a few strips of double-sided tape to hold the paper in place and make sure no dirt gets under the paper’s surface.
9. When to Replace or Reuse Waxed Paper
Replace the sheets of waxed paper every three to four months as needed. You can swap them based on the seasons. Try to change the paper at Christmas, Easter, 4th of July, and Halloween.
If you’re looking for a way to save money and be more environmentally friendly, why not reuse the waxed paper? If it’s not too dirty, you can simply take a moist cloth and wipe the surface to clean it and not need to replace the sheet with a new one. Simply removing the dust is usually enough. If the sheet is too high to comfortably reach and wipe, then take the sheet down to clean. Once clean, you can put it back up on the shelf.
