kitchen tip: waxing your stovetop
Kitchen Tip: Waxing your Stovetop for the easiest cleanup even for the messiest cooks!
Car wax on a stove. Not something you see everyday, but if you love a clean stove then this is something you should give a try.
Saw this on Pinterest a few months ago and I recently got around to trying this. I made spaghetti with red sauce and splattered every where on the stove and while I was cleaning it up (after the stove completely cooled down), it dawned on me that the reason why it was so easy to clean up was because of the layer of wax I had put on there a couple weeks ago.
Make sure you have a cool surface to work on, i.e. make sure the stove isn’t hot, then clean the stove with a sponge to get whatever residue has been caked on there before. Follow the instructions on the back of your car wax. Voila! You will now have a stove that is easy to wipe off and clean in the future, oh and not to mention a very shiny and smooth stove :) You can do this on any type of range, gas or electric. I typically will re-wax about every 2 months or so, or whenever you feel that the stovetop is getting non-waxy again.
Happy cleaning/waxing! Wax on, wax off ;)
