Wacky Uses for
Reynolds® Cut-Rite® Wax Paper

  1. Make hangers glide along a clothes rod. Rub a sheet of Reynolds Cut-Rite Wax Paper over the clothes rod and hangers will glide back and forth more easily.
  2. Preserve autumn leaves. Place the leaves between two sheets of Reynolds Cut-Rite Wax Paper, then place the wax paper between two sheets of brown paper. Press with a warm iron to seal, then trim the paper around the leaves.
  3. Prevent shoe polish from smearing. Let the shoe polish dry, then rub with a sheet of Reynolds Cut-Rite Wax Paper to remove the excess polish. Use a second sheet of Cut-Rite Wax Paper as a work surface to prevent the shoe polish from spattering the floor.
  4. Prevent a mess when whipping cream with an electric beater. Cut two small holes in the middle of a sheet of Reynolds Cut-Rite Wax Paper, slip the stem of the beaters through the holes, and attach to the machine. Lower the beaters into the mixing bowl, keeping the wax paper over the bowl, and turn on the machine.
  5. Save stamps. Keep stamps between sheets of Reynolds Cut-Rite Wax Paper to prevent them from sticking together.
  6. Prevent spatters in the microwave. Cover spaghetti and meatballs, chili, or other saucy foods with Reynolds Cut-Rite Wax Paper.
  7. Make a crayon sun-catcher. Using a small pencil sharpener, shave crayons onto a sheet of Cut-Rite Wax paper. Fold the wax paper in half, covering all the shavings. Press with a warm iron until the crayon shavings melt. When cool, thread string through the top of the wax paper and hang in a window.
  8. Improvise a diaper changing pad. A sheet of Cut-Rite Wax Paper can be used as an easy-to-tote changing mat.
  9. Save ingredients when measuring. When measuring flour, sugar, baking mix, or other dry ingredients, crease a sheet of Cut-Rite paper down the middle, open it up, and place it on the kitchen countertop. Spoon the ingredient into a dry measuring cup, level it off with a knife or spatula, letting the excess fall on the wax paper. Pick up the wax paper, and pour the excess back in its canister.
  10. Never grease a cake pan again. Place each pan on a sheet of Cut Rite Wax Paper, trace around the bottom of the pan, cut out the wax paper circle, and place it in the pan. After baking and cooling, loosen the sides of the cake with a knife. Invert the cake onto a cooling rack, remove the pan, and peel off the wax paper for a smooth surface that’s ready to frost.
  11. Store candles. Roll candles in a sheet of Cut-Rite Wax Paper before placing them in a drawer or storage box to protect them from getting scuffed.
  12. Resurface a metal sliding board. Rub a sheet of Reynolds Cut-Rite Wax Paper on the metal slide.

Lay the wax paper directly on the surface of the paint in the can and replace the lid. The wax paper will keep oil- or water-based paints fresh for months.
  14. Shine kitchen appliances and counters. Buff appliance exteriors and counter tops with a sheet of Reynolds Cut-Rite Wax Paper.
