So I’ve seen this pin many many times… It promises to prevent water spots on your bath fixtures by buffing them with wax paper after they are clean.
So here we go…Here are my chrome fixtures before cleaning pictures, I am embarrassed to say, but for the sake of full disclosure you need the baseline idea of how bad the watermarks get around here…I cleaned my bathroom per usual water and vinegar combo and dried completely. I took a piece of wax paper and buffed each piece: sink faucet and handles and shower dial, spout, toggle thingy, and even the shower mirror. I tried not to overuse any particular piece of wax paper, using 1 section per fixture. And that’s it.
Immediately, I noticed the wax paper left a hazy sort of smudgy nonsense. The average person going into your bathroom probably would not notice I think but since I was examining it it was quite obvious.
And so what was left was to admire the cleanliness that a few hours and use the bathroom as usual until next cleaning…
A week later (ok let’s just pretend together that I manage to clean the bathrooms every Thursday like I plan!) here is the result…
So basically I see no difference what-so-ever. And while wax paper is cheap and always stashed in my pantry this was a waste of money (albeit counted in cents) and more importantly my time this go round.
Bottom Line – Don’t Bother!Maybe one day I will find a magic potion for this problem but for now I guess I just have to keep cleaning it every Thursday… or so.
