08 Sep How to Keep Your White Kitchen White
A beautiful white kitchen is timeless and creates a bright and spacious cooking environment. Don’t give up on your dream of a white kitchen because you dread the thought of cleaning and keeping it white. To make the cleaning process easier and less stressful follow this helpful advice.
It seems like a great idea to let natural light flow into a stunning white kitchen, however, exposure to direct sunlight can cause eventual yellowing of cabinets and fading of other white kitchen materials. A great solution to avoid permanent sun damage is to install blinds, curtains or shutters to protect your surfaces while still letting a little natural light stream into your stylish kitchen.
Using your cooktop will cause food and grease particles to spread around your kitchen and create a coating of oils over your bench tops. Avoiding a build-up of food particles is essential as it will be easily visible in a white kitchen and cause your cabinets to turn yellow. Ensure you turn on the exhaust while cooking, especially when deep-frying, to eliminate as much grease as possible and make your cleaning process a little easier. To keep your cabinets white, clean them regularly with a soft cloth and a solution of warm water and soap.
An everyday kitchen during cooking preparation will endure a large amount of food and drink spills and grease splatters. Daily cooking for a large family will cause an unavoidable build-up of dirt and grime. Ensure spills are cleaned up straight away before they penetrate your white kitchen surfaces. This will avoid the risk of accumulated splatters and stains on your white bench tops causing permanent discolouration to the surface and damage to the finish.
Build up from daily cooking is clearly more noticeable in a white kitchen and requires a regular sturdy clean. Keep your kitchen looking white by regularly cleaning the sink, giving your surfaces a solid clean and removing build-up of grout between white tiles. During this process avoid using harsh cleaning products and chemicals. Using abrasive cleaning agents or products with harsh ingredients will cause more unwanted damage to your white kitchen. Use a mild soap and soft cloth for your sink, a natural solution of baking soda and water for your cabinets or a mild dishwashing liquid with warm water for any other surfaces.
Following these tips will ensure your stunning white kitchen will stay sparkling clean.
