If you have stainless steel appliances, you know how difficult it is to keep them shiny and free from fingerprints, especially if your household is overcrowded. Car wax may be the answer to this endless horror.
“Apply a thin coat of car wax to stainless steel refrigerators and ranges. Buff Clean to resist fingerprints and smudges ”, advises This Old House screenwriter Jennifer Stimpson.
Illuminate the fixtures
Now that your stainless steel appliances are shining bright and free from fingerprints, grab the car wax and turn your attention to your kitchen sink fixture. Wax is great for making metal fixtures shine, and that includes your fixtures in your bathroom, Stimpson notes. Not only will the wax create a brilliant shine on faucets, but it will also help them repel stains.

Exposure to the natural elements wreaks havoc on the quality of your garden tools. To help protect them, Trotter suggests buffing the wax on the blades and hinges with a soft cloth.
“The wax will lubricate the metal, creating a smooth surface that repels sap, dirt and other sticky garden debris,” Trotter adds.
