Cleaning your kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities can be time-consuming and exhausting. Cabinets cleaning techniques are the same whether you are working on the kitchen cabinets or bathroom vanities. However, with some cleaning hacks, you will be able to save some time and energy. Kitchen cabinets, for example, face constant challenges from dirt, grease, bacteria, and fingerprints. Therefore, kitchen and bathroom should be the main focus of your cleaning routine as they are under the highest exposure to bacteria growth.
Supplies that you need:

What about bathroom cabinets?
The insides of bathroom cabinets can be warm and moist, which makes them an ideal place for mold to grow. Even if you don’t see mold growing, it is still a good idea to fill a spray bottle with bleach or vinegar and spray down the entire area because it will kill mold spores that might become a problem later.
How often should you clean kitchen cabinets?
Grease from cooking, condensation from temperature changes and steam, dirt and bacteria from hands and food can stain and damage cabinet exteriors. Depending on how often you cook, some cabinets should be wiped down after every use while some can do a weekly cleaning.

Picking bathroom renovation materials is just as important as picking a style and fixtures for your remodelling. The materials can alter the entire mood of the room, the style, and the feeling you get when you enter that space.
First and foremost, you should have your renovation plan down. By knowing what you are remodelling and what you are purchasing, you minimize the chances of a $10,000 project becoming a $30,000 project. Little details like light fixtures, testing paint colour before purchasing a large quantity, cabinet knobs and tiling can all be planned beforehand. This most definitely includes your bathtubs, bathroom vanities, mirrors and other bathroom accessories.
You should also make sure you have a clear vision of the mood you want to feel when you enter the space. Do you want it to feel bright, open and minimal? Do you want it to feel traditional, with rustic touches? Or maybe you want to go a funkier route and have some more colour incorporated. Materials like marble for flooring and countertops can add a clean, modern look to a bathroom, but depending on the colour and fine-tuning, can also incorporate beautifully into a more traditionally designed space.
