A substance used by motorists to spruce up their cars helps a dirty stove

Keeping a clean gas stove all day every day is quite impossible. Even if we were more careful, we’d make a mess while cooking, plain and simple. As a rule, you don’t clean it immediately after cooking for one simple reason, the gas stove is still hot. That’s why we wait for it to cool down, and in the meantime the food residue dries out. This means that they are also harder to wash off, quickly stiffening and sticking, which is very unpleasant later on. But we have a solution – car wax.

Gas Stove

We always try to clean the gas cooker with a dish sponge or cloth after each cooking session. However, these usually end up in the bin straight away because they build up on them:

  • Food residue
  • Fat
  • Burnt bits of food

We can save ourselves the hassle of cleaning, though, because there’s a simple trick to protect the surface of a gas stove from cooking debris – car wax.

Car wax

Car wax is not only to provide a shining shine on the body of our car, but also to protect against external influences and scratches. In addition, the maintenance and care of the car is much easier because the dirt remains on the wax layer. Most modern cars have a clear coat, so wax is quite useless, but soon the surface can fade, so it is useful to wax the car regularly. Car wax resists stains and fingerprints and also repels dust and dirt.

Car Wax Application

Now you can probably see where we’re going with all this. Because car wax can give your gas stove the same protection as the vehicles that take you to work and home every day. A coat of wax will ensure that all dirt, grime and fluids are easily cleaned and wiped away. But it’s important to know how to do it right. Always make sure your stove is completely clean first before you start the actual wax application. Then, apply the car wax on a cloth as indicated on the packaging. Before you do so, make sure the stove is cold. This technique can be used on most gas stoves, including:

  • Stainless
  • Metal
  • Glass
  • Ceramic

The wax will last about 2 weeks on your stove surface, so repeat the process each time you see the shiny layer fade. It is always important to follow the rules as they are stated on the packaging. It is possible that its protection will last you even longer than 2 weeks. It also depends on how often you cook and use your gas stove.
