Kitchen storage units are some of the prime areas of wear and tear. When you are remodeling your kitchen it might not just do to change your kitchen cabinet hardware. The new hardware needs some care and also maintenance to make the kitchen look new and great. With the range of hardware available in the market now, these knobs and pulls are no longer just utilitarian but are also accent pieces for your kitchen. Make sure that they are clean and are a part of the upkeep of your kitchen since they are the visible parts of your cabinetry.
Kitchens are high traffic areas where there is a lot of grime and oil or accumulation of food stains. Let us consider how to clean each part of your cabinetry. Cleaning the kitchen cabinet hardware is easy. Unscrew the knobs, pulls and handles of your cabinets, draws and your pantry. Mix equal quantities of distilled vinegar and warm water and soak them in it for a while. Once you take them out make a soap
solution with your dish washing liquid and with the help of a soft brush scrub them lightly to get rid of the loosened grime and oil residues. Once this is done let them dry out before replacing them.
Cleaning the cabinets is easy with the help of a mild dish washing detergent to remove caked on grease and grime. Wipe off the easily removable dirt with the help of a moist or damp cloth, then dip a sponge in soapy water and systematically rub it throughout the inner surface of the cabinets. Leave the cabinets open for the moisture to dry out.
Cabinet doors need special attention since these are the outer surfaces of your cabinets. Avoid using harsh chemicals and strong cleansers that can damage the veneer or laminate or the wood. If you find a lot grime along the borders or edges then a 2:1 solution of borax and ammonia might do the trick. Put this solution in a spray can and spray it lightly on the greased areas. Scrub lightly or hard depending on how stubborn the dirt is.
Once this is done reattach the hardware and replace the drawer knobs. Use liners to line your cabinets so that the cabinet itself doesn’t get any stains or dirt due to spills. If this is done as part of your spring cleaning routine then it might be a good way to keep your kitchen looking brand new.
