All-Round Maintenance of Bathroom Cabinets
What is a perfect bathroom cabinet? Of course, it can not only improve the aesthetics, but also realize the practical storage of the bathroom. Looking at the neat bathroom space, the mood will definitely become clearer! But bathroom cabinets also have a “temper”. Even if they are made of stainless steel, they can’t afford the “old age”. Now I will take everyone to learn how to maintain the bathroom cabinet in an all-round way:
1. The cleaning and maintenance of the cabinet
①For general stains, you can use some cleaning sprays, spray them lightly, and dry them with a dry towel. Do not use high-concentration or strong corrosive solvents to scrub;
②When cleaning the exterior of stainless steel, care must be taken to avoid surface scratches, and no steel wire balls or rough brushes are used to clean the cabinet;
③Use a soft cloth to dust the bathroom cabinets. Before dusting, the soft cloth can be moistened with spray cleaner or soapy water. Do not wipe it directly with a dry cloth;
④Some cleaning products such as soap and facial cleanser will be placed in the cabinet. It is best to remove the cleaning agent accidentally flowing out immediately (or put a layer of cloth under the cleaning products);
⑤The bathroom cabinet should not be rinsed with water. You can wipe it gently with a slightly damp cloth to avoid corrosion caused by accumulation of water.
2. Mirror cleaning and maintenance
①If the mirror surface is stained or not bright, you can spray it on the mirror surface with glass cleaner, and then wipe it with newspaper;
②Do not touch the mirror with wet hands, and do not wipe the mirror with a damp cloth to avoid increasing moisture pouring;
③Use a soft cloth or feather duster to dust off the surface of the frame, then wipe the surface of the frame with a clean soft damp cloth, and wipe gently; do not use any glass cleaner or other solvents to contact and scrub the frame;
④Dip some kerosene or wax with a soft cloth and wipe the mirror and frame to make it clear and bright;
⑤For anti-fogging, before taking a bath, apply soap to the mirror surface and wipe it with a dry cloth. A layer of soap film is formed on the mirror surface to prevent blurring of the mirror surface; or use a dry cloth dipped in a proper amount of detergent to apply to the mirror surface. Using astringent lotion or detergent can effectively prevent water vapor from condensing on the mirror surface and play a good anti-fogging effect.
3. Cleaning and maintenance of countertop and basins
①The general dirt on the countertop can be wiped with a neutral detergent or soapy water, and dried with a dry towel;
②Stubborn oil stains or tea watermarks on the table can be polished with 1200# water sandpaper, then polished with a polishing machine, and then wiped clean with a scouring pad;
③If there are burns, scratches, or knife marks on the table, first polish with 400# or 600# water sandpaper, then polish it with a polishing machine, and then wipe it clean with a scouring pad;
④The ceramic basin is used for a long time, it is easy to accumulate dirt, you can use sliced lemon to scrub the surface of the basin, wait a minute and then rinse with water, it will become bright;
⑤If the stain on the basin is stubborn, you can use safe bleach water, pour it into the basin and soak for 20 minutes, then wash it with a towel or sponge, and then rinse with water.
4. Cleaning and maintenance of faucet
① During installation, various impurities in the pipeline should be thoroughly removed to avoid damage to the valve core, jamming, blockage and leakage;
②You don’t need to use too much force when switching on and off, just gently twist or toggle, and you don’t need to spend a lot of effort to screw it to death;
③If the water outlet is equipped with a screen cover, it should be disassembled and rinsed after a period of use to clean impurities. If equipped with a hose, it should be noted that the hose should always be kept in a natural stretched state to avoid breaking.
5. Cleaning and maintenance of metal fittings
①Metal fittings (hinge, slide rail, etc.), add lubricating oil every six months to keep it smooth;
② Regularly check whether the water inlet pipe and the water outlet pipe are tightly connected to avoid water leakage affecting the cabinet.
Of course, if you want to extend the service life of bathroom cabinets, in addition to daily cleaning and maintenance, you must also cooperate with good usage habits, and constant maintenance can make the quality of bathroom cabinets lasting as new.
1. Four taboos of bathroom cabinets
No matter what kind of material the bathroom cabinet is, it is very afraid of high temperature, humidity, sharp objects, and chemicals. Anything in contact with the bathroom cabinet should be kept at room temperature; the bathroom cabinet should be wiped with a dry cloth in time after being sprayed to keep it dry and reduce unnecessary damage. It is best not to put household chemicals such as hair dye, paint, bleach, etc. On the bathroom cabinet.
2. Items are placed steadily
Place items in the cabinet of the bathroom cabinet steadily. Place heavier items on the bottom of the cabinet of the bathroom cabinet. The movable shelf can be adjusted up and down. Pay attention to whether the shelf supports are placed in the right position. The wall cabinet is suitable for placing light items, such as shampoo, shower gel, dry towels, paper towels and other light items, so as to avoid the stress and deformation of the top and bottom plates due to excessive weight, and to ensure the safety of the process of taking and placing items.
3. Pay attention to the maintenance of hardware
Bathroom cabinet hardware mainly includes metal chains, hinges, slide rails, etc. The materials are generally made of stainless steel or steel surface spraying and plastic spraying. When using it, care should be taken to avoid direct sprinkling of strong acid and alkaline solutions on the hardware. Wipe clean immediately if it happens accidentally; door hinges and drawer slide rails should be kept open and closed, free to pull, always clean, to prevent damp and rust, door hinges and pulls should be handed out–the loosening agent makes abnormal noises, and should be adjusted in time .
