Once your beautiful new kitchen is installed, you have your remodel finished and prepared for your future. But…then what? You have a new investment in your home, and beautiful surfaces to learn to care for properly. Taking proper care of your new custom kitchen is crucial to making sure that you’ll be able to enjoy it for as long as possible.
Scrub Grease Stains
You don’t need any expensive scouring cleaners in order to get grease stains off of your kitchen surfaces, even your glass stovetop. If you clean up quickly with a good dishwashing soap, messes should be simple to clean off. However, more cooked-on messes might be complicated. If you’re facing a greasy mess that has cooked onto your stovetop, you can use a paste made from baking soda and vinegar to scrub it. It should come right off! If it doesn’t, using a razor to very carefully scrape off the worst of greasy messes may do the trick.
Wipe Down Surfaces
Keeping the surfaces in your kitchen clean and wiped down is an important part of taking care of your kitchen. Granite surfaces are easy to clean with a homemade cleaning solution. Fill a spray bottle with at least a cup and a half of warm water, add a quarter teaspoon of dishwashing detergent, and then ten drops of an essential oil of your choice. This solution is also great for a lot of other surfaces in your kitchen. It works great not only for natural surfaces, but also for anything else, even things like metal or floors.
Look to Those Who Know
If you run into messes you aren’t sure how to tackle, don’t be afraid to search for answers. You could ask people you know or online. There are a ton of kitchen cleaning hacks you can try. Your goal is to keep your kitchen nice, and the surfaces you chose were picked with the intention of use over a long period of time. Still, not everybody knows how to get ink off of paint or blueberry juice off of countertops. It’s always ok to ask and learn from those who already know.
A beautiful new kitchen is what you’ve always wanted, but keeping it that way can be a bit of an adventure. It’s crucial to be able to clean surfaces without damaging them. This means making sure you take care of it, and that it’s protected. For the most part, gentle detergents and soft scrubs should be all that’s necessary.
