This place in the kitchen is cleaned only on holidays
Countertops, sink and stove: we clean all of these surfaces in the kitchen regularly. But there are places where even the biggest cleanliness fanatics look only on holidays. These are kitchen cabinets.
OBOZREVATEL shares how to put things in order in this hidden zone quickly and how to keep it clean.
Where dirt accumulates most often
Naturally, the most dirty part of the kitchen cabinets is their upper surface. It is above eye level and there is a lot of dirt. The fronts are not cleaned that often either. Meanwhile, hand marks appear on them. This problem is especially noticeable on glossy surfaces.
What to clean kitchen cabinets with
Since this furniture is in contact with dishes and products, you should choose ecological and non-toxic means. Industrial household chemicals are not suitable here, because you can never be sure of their composition. It is better to give preference to baking soda and vinegar. With the help of abrasive baking soda powder, you can remove dirt and clean stains. A solution of vinegar with water in a proportion of 1:1 will work well for daily care. It can be used as a spray. This remedy will dissolve grease and clean the surfaces.
Lifehack against fingerprints
If even vinegar spray does not help to remove fingerprints from the fronts of cabinets in the kitchen, an ordinary potato can come to the rescue. Take a small root vegetable, wash it from the ground and cut a slice off the edge. Wipe the dirty spot, leave the juice to act for a few minutes and then wipe off the residue with a paper towel. You can cut new slices as you use them. This way you use the potato gently and clean a fairly large area.
How to prevent dirt from settling
It's impossible to defeat dirt settling on kitchen cabinets completely, but you can make it much easier to care for. Cover the top with a piece of paper, such as an old newspaper. In this case, you will just have to gently change the cover from time to time and there will be no need to wipe the surface thoroughly. Do not forget to use the hood during cooking. It will reduce the amount of splashes and stains.
