A cabinet will look more beautiful if you use clean cabinet hardware. A cabinet knob improves the total appearance of a cabinet if it looks pretty itself. No matter what hardware you have chosen to go with your cabinet, if it is not clean, the dirt on it will decrease the attractiveness of your cabinet. So it is best that you make good choices of this cabinet hardware to make it useful and appealing.
A cleaner that is appropriate to clean your hardware cabinet is of the utmost importance. Liquid and paste cleaners are easily available in your local supermarket. Carefully pick your cleaner especially when cleaning the older type of hardware which is usually tarnished, requiring a cleaner with tarnish remover for maximum effect.
Always remember to take out your cabinet hardware from the cabinet with a screwdriver before cleaning it. Screws can get lost very easily, so remember to put them together in a single place. Also clean the screws before you reattach them to the hardware with a mixture of vinegar and warm water, which will soften up hard dirt and other material that have stuck to the hardware and the screws.
For 10 minutes, soak the hardware in the mixture, taking out the hardware one by one before cleaning. A soft brush can be used to take out any greasy dirt attached to the screws and cabinet hardware, with the use of liquid or paste to clean these, wholly dependent on the metal-finish type. The directions on the container of the cleanser should be carefully followed to the letter, soaking the hardware or coating it on the hardware.
After cleaning the screws and cabinet knob, it will be more thoroughly cleaned by rinsing it with warm water or using soft cloth in wiping residue. Before reattaching the hardware, also clean up the cabinet with the right type of cleaner depending on whether it is made of wood, metal or plastic. After all of this is done, you can put back the hardware on the cabinet.
