It seems like there’s never a good time to buy new custom kitchen cabinets. You are already spending tons of cash on an extensive home remodeling project and your monthly bills are piling up. Before choosing to apply for a loan just to be able to afford new cabinets, ask yourself the following questions: Do you really need these costly pieces of furniture? Couldn’t you actually clean and upgrade the existing ones with minimal effort on your behalf? As a matter of fact, you could restore the original finish of your cabinets in a few simple steps, with basic products that you normally store in your closet. To complete this simple DIY process you’ll need a bunch of clean cloths, liquid detergent, a cheesecloth, Danish oil and heavy flannel.
Clean the Cabinets Thoroughly. Fill a plastic bucket with clean, hot water and pour a few drops of quality liquid detergent in it. Opt for a gentle, non-abrasive formula that won’t damage your delicate wooden surfaces. Dip a cloth in your mix and use it to rub your custom cabinets multiple times. Repeat the process and change the soapy water if needed, until the cloth stops picking up dirt particles.
Rinse Your Cabinets. Next, use a different bucket filled with clean water to rinse your cabinets. Rub both of your hands across the area that you’ve just washed to make sure that it is smooth and non-slippery.
Start Your Restoration. Afterwards, wipe the cabinets with a clean dry cloth. Start distributing Danish oil on the surfaces that you wish to restore. To complete this step, rub your furniture with a soft cloth dipped in Danish oil. Let the oil rest on your cabinets for a couple of hours (resting periods may vary a great deal based on the type of wood that you want to recondition, so make sure you read the product instruction before getting down to work).
Eliminate the Excess Danish Oil. Pick a cheeseclothand use short, firm strokes to remove any remaining Danish oil. If needed, decide to repeat the anteriorly described polishing process until you are pleased with the end result. Don’t forget to wipe your custom cabinets with apremium heavy flannel, with circular motions. At the end of the day, your cabinets should look and feel like new.
This easy DIY process will allow you to save a lot of money that you would otherwise have to invest in custom cabinetry. Quality Danish oil is worldwide famous for its protective properties and represents a powerful ally for all homeowners who wish to extend the lifespan of their wooden cabinets. On top of that, Danish oil is fairly easy to apply, gets absorbed into wooden surfaces very rapidly and nourishes your cabinet material from the inside out, restoring its unique, healthy glow.
