Clean and Lubricate the Can Opener With Wax Paper
Tin openers can get very dirty over time, which is unsanitary but also prevents the opener from performing at its best. Fortunately, wax paper can fix the problem.
Even if you are good at cleaning the can opener regularly, food pieces and metal flakes will be difficult to remove. But, as Jillee’s ever-helpful blog One Good Thing points out, you can fold a piece of waxed paper a few times, grip it with a bottle opener, and rotate it a few times. Not only does the paper help out whatever gets stuck under the blades, the wax coating lubricates the mechanism at the same time.
