Cleaning Cabinet Interiors

Atra interior design group's suggestions about the correct way to clean cabinet interiors

The correct way to clean cabinet interiors, Atra interior design group, Mashhad
- Wipe the insides of cabinets and drawers with all-purpose cleaner or white vinegar diluted in water. Rinse and dry.
- Use a toothbrush to clean along the edges and cracks.
- Let the surface dry completely before placing any item back in the cabinets or drawers.
- Seal unfinished wood or metal surfaces for easier cleaning and to avoid bacterial buildup.
- Sand lightly and apply a coat of polyurethane (for wood) or an appropriate paint.

- Install shelf paper to help preserve the surface and foster easier cleaning. Paper is inexpensive but cannot be washed and needs to be replaced frequently.
- Vinyl is inexpensive and washable but might slide and bunch up in high-use areas.
- Rubber is washable, slides less often, and offers some cushioning -- making it a good choice for areas prone to earthquakes.
- Self-adhesive vinyl is washable and stays in place but might be difficult to remove if worn.
- A low-tack self-adhesive vinyl is washable, durable, and able to be repositioned.
