As a cleaning enthusiast, I put these to the test. Here are the results of these simple Shaving Cream Hacks To Help Your Home! You’ll need a cheap can of shaving cream. My shaving foam recommendation is for the regular, not the gel shaving cream. The white shaving foam just works better.

1. Clean Stainless Steel Appliances

It is said you can clean them with shaving cream.  I put this to the test…

cleaning stainless oven with shaving cream

Squirt on the shaving cream, rub shaving cream over the surface, then wipe off with a damp sponge or microfibre cloth. I cleaned my microwave, my dishwasher, and my oven surface with shaving cream.

I learned not all stainless steel appliances are created equally.  While it cleaned my oven and microwave well with no trouble.  My dishwasher was a different story.
