In every kitchen, there are various pieces that can capture the attention of the homeowner and guests. It can be the appliances, countertops, or even the design itself. However, one focal point in every kitchen that will no doubt attract the attention of anyone walking in is the kitchen cabinets. With that in mind, it’s vital that you take proper care of your cabinets, whether by yourself or with the help of a kitchen remodeling expert.
In this post, The Kitchen Store discusses the simple ways you can care for your home’s kitchen cabinets.
Line the Shelves and Drawers
They may be closed most of the time but dirt and grime can still infiltrate the interior of your cabinets and drawers. To minimize this and protect your dishes and glassware, kitchen remodeling services providers often recommend lining your shelves and drawers. For instance, you can use parchment paper for the cabinet under the sink and vinyl board cover liners in the knife drawer to prevent them from sliding. Other liners include adhesive liners, cedar to prevent pantry moths and insects from getting into drawers where you keep dry goods and felt for drawers that contain silver.
Clean The Cabinets
Cleaning your kitchen cabinets is a must for every home. You cook in the kitchen, meaning grime can easily build up on cabinet doors, especially the handles. Cleaning your cabinets isn’t too big a task since a mixture of mild dishwashing liquid and water will usually do the trick. However, if the grime becomes tough, it might be necessary to remove the hardware itself to soak it in warm, soapy water for 30 minutes and let it dry before replacing it.
