8. Keep the Microwave Clean
Any time you heat up a bowl of soup or beans, the juice can splatter in the microwave. Place a piece of wax paper on top of the bowl and then heat as normal. The wax paper will prevent splatter buildup in the microwave and make cleaning the appliance easier.
7. Protect Your Cutting Boards
Cut a piece of wax paper and rub it across the surface of your cutting board. The wax from the paper will transfer to the clean surface of your cutting board. It helps to protect the cutting board and keeps it looking new.
6. Clean the Iron
Your iron needs regular cleaning. It can build up sludge and oils from the clothing. Running wax paper across the surface of the iron breaks away dirt, food and other buildup that can clog the gears. Simply run the iron across the wax paper and pretend you are ironing the wax and it will effectively clean the hot metal surface.
You can also put some table salt on the surface of the wax paper to create a rough base to break apart stuck-on substances.Related: 10 Tips for Taming and Using Plastic Wrap
