Once you’ve installed your new splashback, you’ll want to keep it looking like new for as long as possible.
Here are some top tips to keep your kitchen splashback looking great:
1. Use the right tool for the job
You’ll want to make that your new splashback is maintained and in top condition. A quick Google search can confirm the best products to use. You will want to make sure that the product does not contain abrasives; if it does, be sure to check reviews to make sure that it’s fit for your kitchen. When using the product for the first time, you can also check that it doesn’t mark or stain either by applying it to a similar item in the home or a more discrete section on the splashback.
2. Always try to go natural
If you’re not too keen on splashing out on top-range cleaning products, it’s worth remembering that there’s no better cheap and natural cleaner for glass than white vinegar. It’s great for removing the oil marks left behind by fingertips, stripping away any grease or dirt, and can be diluted with water and applied through a spray bottle.
3. Sort it on the spot
While it can be difficult to find the time to clean while you’re cooking, you can save effort in future by wiping down any spills as soon as they come into contact with your splashback. The longer the spill is left against the glass, the greater the chance there is for it to stain. If it does dry on, it’s best to use a damp cloth to soften the mark and a dry cloth followed up with a crumpled-up piece of newspaper to avoid streaking.
4. Choose your fabric
When it comes to cleaning, it’s essential that you use a cloth that’s made from the right material. A cloth or sponge that’s too coarse could easily score the surface and one with loose fibres can leave spots of fluff behind that can be unsightly and difficult to clean.
