How to clean your natural wood cabinets?

The wood that are used for the kitchen cabinets are heat and water resistant. The glue is of very high quality used for assembling the wood together.
Cleaning should be done carefully for the natural wood covering. As is known, wood is a living material, therefore excessive moisture can cause the deformation of the wood. In your kitchen the type of wood used is suitable for room temperature of 18-21 and is designed according to the relative humidity of 50-70%. Natural wood should be protected against direct sunlight which causes color change. Otherwise it will lose its natural color, regardless of the finish.

Laminate Worktops

Made of paper blended with resins and fused to particle board which is easy to clean. Its light weight doesn't require the support of a thick cabinet base.

Cleaning: To avoid stains your laminate countertop surfaces should wiped gently with a damp cloth. If desired, liquid soap and cleaning agent liquids containing alkali elements may be used. Diluted alcohol can remove stubborn stains such as ink and paint. However, these materials are flammable and should be used very carefully with windows open. Lime scale surfaces can be prevented with the use of warm water and with a little vinegar. Stubborn stains can be removed with detergents that contain a little amount of acid. Pen marks can be removed using alcohol. We recommend spray glass cleaner as the ideal cleaning material. After spraying a small amount wipe thoroughly.

DON'Ts: Do not use products containing abrasive materials. Do not use abrasive creams or powder detergents because they will destroy the gloss. Do not use the work top surfaces as a cutting board. Do not take and place pots or pans directly from the stove while still hot. Do not drop hard and sharp objects on the worktop. Dry around the sink area after use.

Precautions: Laminate is prone to scratching, burns and in some cases, staining. With wear and moisture exposure, the layers can peel. Because of the raw particle board core, you can't use laminate with under mounted sinks and it is difficult to repair if it gets damaged.
