one Do not use abrasives
This applies to both cleaning products and accessories with which you are going to clean surfaces. Do not use hard sponges made of metal and napkins with abrasive elements. They will severely scratch the facades, and in the future, grease and other dirt will accumulate in the recesses that have appeared. Cleaning them up will be even more difficult. Therefore, microfiber, flannel or cloth napkins are suitable for cleaning.
2 Arm yourself with soft brushes
For areas that are difficult to clean with a tissue, use a brush with very soft bristles. It is suitable for decorative stucco, other outstanding details, as well as small gaps. If there is no suitable brush, take a toothbrush. Be sure to check that it is soft.
3 Do not clean furniture with harsh products
Dirt and grease often get on the facades, which are subsequently difficult to clean. However, be careful when choosing chemistry: too harsh compositions can ruin the furniture. For example, facades covered with plastic and finishing film or made of MDF cannot be cleaned with products that contain chlorine.
Usually good manufacturers indicate the means by which furniture can be washed. Pay attention to this list.
four Use folk ways
If you are not used to using store-bought compounds, then you can mix a cleaning solution from improvised means. Take hot water and add dishwashing liquid to it in a ratio of 1:2. Or use water and vinegar in the same proportion.
5 Do not leave the product for a long time
When washing furniture, you can not let the composition soak in, otherwise you can ruin it. Therefore, the cleaning process must be fast. It is better to apply the product first on a damp cloth, and then on the surface of the furniture.
Another piece of advice follows from this: do not apply the composition immediately to all the facades, concentrate on one cabinet. Once you’re done with it, move on to the next one.
6 Be careful with fragile hardware
Check what materials furniture fittings are made of. For example, a headset is sometimes decorated with decorative elements and brass handles. This material is very demanding. If chemicals not intended for cleaning get on it, dark spots may appear on the fittings, and the metal itself will change color.
Therefore, approach the cleaning of kitchen facades wisely: consider in advance all the decorative elements and materials from which they are made.
7 Don’t forget the glass inserts
If your headset has glass elements, you should clean them as well. This can be done with glass cleaner or the already mentioned solution of vinegar and water. Both of them will cope well with dirt and will not leave streaks.
eight Wipe fasteners dry
Furniture fasteners are usually made of metal. If they get a lot of moisture, they can rust. If they also need cleaning, be sure to wipe the elements dry after cleaning.
