Cleaning is always a hot topic around the new year, and our most frequently asked question for our showroom newsletter is always about how to clean the products we sell. We came across this fun site offering a playlist designed to bring out and motivate your inner Merry Maid…
To help ring in a sparkly clean new year, we’ve also included a few tips for taking care of your tcabinetry and appliances below:
CABINETRY: Fine cabinetry should be treated as you would treat fine furniture. For ordinary cleaning, wipe the cabinets with a soft, clean cloth dampened slightly with water. Dry immediately with another clean, soft cloth. For more thorough cleaning, use a clean cloth dampened with a solution of mild dishwashing soap and warm water. Be sure to dry thoroughly- excess moisture is one of the worst enemies of any finish! Be sure to wipe up spills promptly with a clean, soft cloth. Avoid using harsh detergents, abrasive cleaners, or ammonia. Waxes or polishing compounds are not usually recommended because over time, they can cause build-up making a hazy, streaky appearance.
STAINLESS APPLIANCES: For light cleaning, you can “wash” the stainless with a cloth soaked in warm water, and dry with another cloth or towel. You might also consider adding a drop or two of vinegar. Fingerprints can often be removed with simple glass cleaner such as Windex. Cleaners made specifically for stainless steel, such as Stainless Steel Magic, are also good for stain removal and overall polishing.
