Steam, frying oil, foods that cause stains – a kitchen has a lot to cope with. Cooking vapours and dust form a particularly tight connection. That is why our furniture is protected by high-quality, easy- care surfaces that are easy to clean. But beware! Aggressive liquid detergents, scouring agents, polishes, wax, solvents, vinegar-based cleaners and steam cleaners are a no-no, just like acidic and silicone-based cleaning agents. Nitro-cellulose combination thinners or synthetic resin thinners can also cause damage and will void your warranty. Keep reading to find out how to care for your worktops and fronts.
Less is more
The rule of thumb is: Keep it simple. If you use any cleaning agent at all, simply grab a mild liquid cleaner and a completely clean, soft, preferably new cloth or sponge. Why new? Because dust and other fine grains left over from earlier cleaning can act like sandpaper and are a risk to any surface, no matter how well-sealed it is. Make your cleaning tool damp but not wet. Moisture may enter bar handles or edges, causing the wood to swell.
By the way, this simple cleaning method applies just as much to the interior of cabinets as it does to handles. But as always: The exception proves the rule, so let’s look at each surface and its special features in detail.
