From vinegar to salt or even lemon juice, there are many things in the home that can multitask as cleaners. Today, we're adding one thing to the list that might surprise you—car wax! Whether in paste or liquid form, wax is formulated to give a high shine to materials like glass and metal while protecting them from stains, making it perfect for cleaning your home. 

What are you waiting for? Grab a lint-free rag and start waxing with these ideas: 

1. Hide scratches in stainless steel appliances.

If you find that your appliances are scarred by scratches (i.e. moving magnets around the fridge, scrubbing the sink too hard), try rubbing in some wax to make them "disappear." The wax fills the lines in so it won't be as noticeable. 

2. Shine kitchen and bathroom fixtures.

Similarly, a little car wax makes your faucets, drawer pulls and towel rods look brand new again. Just make sure to buff it in with a rag well to avoid a greasy finish. 

3. Fight mildew.

Yes, you read that right—it can prevent mildew growth, too. Wipe down shower doors or dividers with a little wax to reduce soap scum and moisture build-up. 

4. Defog mirrors. 

Do you hate dealing with foggy mirrors after a hot shower? A thin application of wax prevents bathroom mirrors from fogging up. Do it at least once a month. 

5. Lubricate old tools.

Revive your old pliers and scissors with a thin coat of wax. You'll find they function much better when you use them again.
