Adding custom cabinets to your home is a worthwhile investment. Custom cabinetry creates an elegant space that is not only tailored to your personal style, but to your specific storage needs as well. Whether your custom cabinets are in your kitchen, bathroom, or bar area, they need to be thoroughly and properly cleaned every so often. Keep your custom cabinets looking fresh and clean with these simple maintenance tips.
The Tough Spots
Every set of cabinets comes with its tough-to-reach spots. These can be a hassle to get to, but it’s necessary to clean out even the smallest nooks and crannies to prevent unwanted pests from making a home out of your custom cabinetry. Wrapping a microfiber cloth around a kitchen knife will allow you to reach those tough spots easily. For areas around the stove that have grease splatter, fill a spray bottle with vodka and castile soap. Spray the area, and wipe down with a paper towel to remove splatter without having to put in too much elbow grease.
Handles and Pulls
Cabinet handles and pulls can become sticky and greasy over time as well. This is especially true if you have any young ones in the house who live to help in the kitchen but aren’t always too keen on washing their hands in the process. To avoid damaging the finish on your custom cabinets, wipe down your handles with a damp microfiber cloth. If you need some extra help removing stubborn grease residue, add a bit of soap to break down the grease.
Cabinet Cleaning Tips
Black cabinets are a sleek and chic addition to any room in your home. While they look amazing, they do require a bit more cleaning than other cabinets as water, grease, and dust show up more easily on black surfaces. They are cleaned the same way white cabinets are. A damp cloth with a small amount of soap will do the trick. You may find that wiping your custom cabinets down once a week is the best way to keep them looking fresh, no matter what color your cabinets may be.
