4 Cool New Uses for Car Wax

Keep bathroom mirrors fog-free
Prevent your bathroom mirror from steaming up after your next hot shower. Apply a small amount of car paste wax to the mirror, let it dry, and buff with a soft cloth. Next time you step out of the shower, you’ll be able to see your face in the mirror immediately. Rub the wax on bathroom fixtures to prevent water spots too.

Eliminate bathroom mildew
To chase grime and mildew from your shower, follow these two simple steps: First clean the soap and water residue off the tiles or shower wall. Then rub on a layer of car paste wax and buff with a clean, dry cloth. You’ll only need to reapply the wax about once a year. Don’t wax the bathtub — it will become dangerously slippery.

Eradicate furniture stains
Someone forgot to use a coaster and now there’s an ugly white ring on the dining room table. When your regular furniture polish doesn’t work, try using a dab of car wax. Trace the ring with your finger to apply the wax. Let it dry and buff with a soft cloth.

Keep snow from sticking
When it’s time to clear the driveway after a big snowstorm, you don’t want snow sticking to your shovel. Apply two thick coats of car paste wax to the work surface of the shovel before you begin shoveling. The snow won’t stick and there will be less wear and tear on your cardiovascular system. If you use a snow thrower, wax the inside of the chute.
