How to Clean Wood Bathroom Cabinets: Top Tips You Can Try

Wood cabinets are the superstars of the cabinet world. They are elegant, classy, and extremely good looking. This is why many homeowners choose them over other materials for their kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms.

But everything pretty comes with one rule – you must maintain it.

Regular maintenance is the only way to protect the charm and ensure longevity. When it comes to bathroom wood cabinets, this becomes a rule.

Bathroom cabinets are subjected to the most wear and tear along with consistent moisture. Neglected cabinets can, thus, get ruined in no time. We all know what that can lead to.

Don’t worry, though.

Maintenance is not an arduous task as long as you do it regularly. It involves daily cleaning with safe ingredients and disinfecting whenever the need arises. In this article, we shall help you with the best tips on how to clean wood bathroom cabinet.

Let’s begin.

Use soap and warm water.

This is the easiest way to clean your bathroom wood cabinets.

Mix mild dish soap with warm water and use a clean sponge to wipe the cabinets down. One teaspoon of soap is enough for a cup of water. You can increase the quantities based on how many cabinets you have.

This combination is useful for everyday cleaning. However, you must be sure not to use too much water. Use just how much is needed for gentle wiping and then use a dry cloth to wipe down one last time. This will remove all the unnecessary moisture.

Use vinegar and water.

Mix equal quantities of vinegar and water. Use a soft cloth or cheesecloth to wipe the surface of the cabinets.

Vinegar is safe to use every day since diluting it with water makes it a mild solution. It also safeguards the finishing of the cabinets.

However, some homeowners may not like using it due to its strong odor. In this case, you can always fall back to soap and warm water for daily cleaning and restrict vinegar to once a week.

Use baking soda and water.

Baking soda is quite mild and makes a wonderful cleaning agent. All you have to do is to make a paste by mixing just enough water and then use a cloth to clean your cabinets.

While following this cleaning method, though, you should be very careful. Baking soda, despite being mild, is an abrasive. Being harsh while cleaning can tarnish the wood. Be gentle and don’t rub the paste in too much.

If you are unable to remove a particular stain, rubbing may make it worse. We advise you to apply the paste and leave it for 20 minutes instead. Wiping it down will be easier this way.

Get a wood cleaner.

If you would rather buy a product to keep your cabinets clean, we recommend a wood cleaner that’s soap and oil-based. These cleaners are specifically formulated for wood and, thus, do the job really well.

Also, apart from knowing how to clean wood bathroom cabinets, you should also know how often you should clean them.

Ideally, you won’t need to clean the cabinets every single day with these. Regular cleaning, maybe once a week, would be enough.

The best method to clean your bathroom’s wood cabinets totally depends on the usage. If you don’t use the bathroom regularly (happens when you have multiple bathrooms at home), you can stick to cleaning once a week or so.

Bathrooms that are used every day must also be cleaned every day. Make sure you regularly check the insides and keep them clean, too. You can use the same aforementioned solutions. Under no circumstances, though, should you use strong detergents or abrasives.

What are you waiting for? Choose a method and start cleaning your cabinets!

Looking to new products, Bev adds strategic investors and redoubles focus on women entrepreneurs

Looking for fellow travelers to join in on its mission to transform the beverage business, the Los Angeles-based startup Bev has taken on fresh capital from a slew of strategic investors. 

The company has added Erin and Sara Foster, creative heads of Bumble BFF and Bumble Biz, to their investor and creative talent pool along with other notable names like Rich Paul, Simon Tikhman, Keith Sheldon and Chief Zaruk.

The new capital will help support the launch of Bev’s new ‘Made By Chicks’ media platform and podcast, which will be hosted by the Foster sisters in their first official partnership with any brand, according to a statement from the company.

In addition to the new media platform, Bev is also planning to launch two new beverages into its boozy stable of canned wines. Expect two white wines to join the company’s Rose on store shelves within the year, according to company founder and chief executive, Alix Peabody.

“We’re partnering with Bev because we’re comfortable buying the product ourselves and telling our friends to buy it,” said Sarah Foster in a statement. “Our community trusts us to be authentic to ourselves and our brand, and we strive to do that. Bev’s female-oriented mission and movement align with our personal interests. We’re very inclusive, rather than alienating, and we’re thrilled to be a part of ‘Made By Chicks.’”

Peabody is one of several entrepreneurs in Los Angeles and beyond looking to upend the market for beverages worldwide — an industry that’s expected to hit $1.9 trillion, according to data provided by the company. Wine alone is expected to be a roughly $450.5 billion dollar business by 2024, according to bev.

“Legacy brands tend to sexualize alcohol consumption, and objectify women on TV, billboards, and in print,” said Peabody, in a statement. “That’s what we’re changing. We want women to know that drinking can be fun, inclusive, and safe.”

Together with Peabody, the Fosters will develop media like podcasts, videos, and events that center on entrepreneurial women. It’s a format similar to the media property Girlboss, founded by Sophia Amoruso and now owned by Attention Capital.

Stories and advice columns from the new platform will range from topics like asking for a raise to managing a company while pregnant.

“When I first met Alix and her team, I immediately gravitated to her incredible founder story, ambition to challenge the alcohol industry’s outdated status quo, and sheer tenacity to spark a movement through an empowering brand like Bev,” shared Simon Tikhman, the CEO and co-founder of The Core Entertainment, a partner of Live Nation, and new Bev brand investor, in a statement. “I also knew by partnering with Bev that I wanted to assemble an unrivaled strategic group with expertise and business acumen in diverse sectors. Erin and Sara Foster, Rich Paul, Keith Sheldon, and Chief Zaruk bring so much to the table.”

Kumail Nanjiani got a 10-year subscription to PornHub for his shirtless pics

Nobody was ready when actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani revealed he was incredibly jacked in December, thanks to his role in the upcoming Marvel tentpole, Eternals. Millions were suddenly struck with a mighty thirst — including, apparently, PornHub. 

The popular purveyor of pornography was so impressed that it made Nanjiani the face of its Muscular Men category, right alongside “Mature” and “MILF.” It’s a pretty immense compliment, considering the website has definitely seen enough half-naked men to know good pectorals.

Speaking to Conan O’Brien about his sudden foray into the adult industry, Nanjiani stressed that he hasn’t received any money for having his shirtless torso plastered across the porn site. However, the explicit website had found other ways to show its appreciation. Read more…
