If you’ve taken the plunge and got yourself a white kitchen, then, congratulations! But what haunts white kitchen owners the most is the maintenance. Yes, those nasty yellow stains can be a nightmare to clean.

While a picture of a white kitchen looks glorious as though no one cooks in them, the harsh reality is that it is bound to be scum with yellow stains, grout, grime and spills. So, what do you have to do to keep your white kitchen bright and clean? Let’s go to the root cause of the problem and try to figure out a solution.

#1 Sunlight

Sunlight can cause wood to turn yellow, even if it is in the form of a laminate. Yet, you can’t block complete sunshine from your kitchen as the bacterial activity can get nasty. Thus, the ideal solution would be to shield your kitchen from direct sunlight — curtains and blinds should do the trick.

#2 Food Grease

We don’t deny it, Indian kitchens are filled with delicacies that use oil for tempering or frying. So when the food boils, minuscule particles float into the air and settle on your beautiful white cabinets making them greasy. Use the exhaust to avoid this mess when you start frying or cooking something. This is sure to help reduce accumulated grease on the wall cabinets and help suck them out.

#3 Cleanser

Although prevention is better than cure, there are some situations that you can’t avoid. Spills, grease, grime, and stains, to mention a few, can just cling to your pretty kitchen. Just a soft cotton cloth dipped in warm water is usually sufficient to get rid of them but you use a mild dishwashing liquid for tough stains.

ProTip: Don’t use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads as they can damage the materials and cause scratches. Also, don’t let stains linger as they can cause permanent damage.

#5 Tackle the grout

We can’t forget about those lovely tiles in the kitchen. If you have white tiles, then it is obvious that grout will stand out. Sealing grout is a no-brainer. All you need is a vinegar and baking soda paste and a toothbrush to scrub them off. Grout is as good as leftover food stuck in your teeth. So brush your kitchen to let them sparkle like your smile.
