Keep Your Kitchen Cabinets Looking Great With These Tips
Neglect to wipe your cabinets and it won't be long until they are covered in a sticky, hard-to-remove layer of gunk. Dust and wipe them regularly, and they'll stay looking good as new.
2. Use a Separate Sponge for Dishes and Cabinets
The sponge you use to clean your dishes probably has plenty of grease and food particles stuck in it that you don't want on your kitchen cabinets. Use a separate sponge for each.
3. Test Any Cleaners in an Inconspicuous Location
Not all cleaners work on all types of wood. Refer to the original manufacturer's instructions for an approved product list and be sure to test in an inconspicuous area first.
4. Keep All Food Well-Sealed
Leaving food open in your kitchen cabinets is a great way to invite pests, including ants, mice and termites. Be sure everything is well-sealed at all times to discourage pests.
5. Install a Kitchen Exhaust Vent
Activities like hand washing dishes, cooking and running the dishwasher often produce a significant amount of steam, which can warp and damage the wood cabinets directly above them. Use an exhaust fan to whisk the steam out.
6. Avoid Draping Wet Towels Over Kitchen Cabinets
Draping wet towels over the cabinet doors below your sink can have a similar effect. Hang them on the stove handle or fridge handle instead.
7. Don't Pull on Cabinet Doors
Lastly, don't let your kids pull on the kitchen cabinet doors to climb onto the counters. Not only is this a safety hazard, but it will weaken the door hinges as well.
