What you need to know to care for your SOLLiD Cabinets.

Here are a few helpful tips to care for your SOLLiD cabinets

CABINET CARE TIPS

Wood cabinet finishes may be cleaned and protected by using commercially available cleaning polish. Please be aware that wax polishes can result in a wax film build-up over time and silicone polishes can harm the cabinet finish. For these reasons, we recommend using a clean cloth dampened with a solution of mild, non-alkaline soap and water. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth and buff lightly, following the direction of the grain. Never use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or powdered cleansers. And never, ever use oven cleaner!

Treat your cabinets as you would any fine furniture. Remember…water is wood’s worst enemy. The areas around the sink, range, dishwasher, oven, and toe kicks are the most susceptible to water. Wipe up spills and watermarks as they occur. Avoid hanging damp or wet dish towels over the doors of the cabinets, as the moisture will cause permanent damage to the finish.

Dust cabinets regularly with a soft, lint-free cloth. Dampen the cloth slightly with water, wipe one area at a time, and then dry.
To clean cabinet interiors, simply wipe with a damp cloth or sponge and dry with a clean cloth.

If your cabinets have glass doors, clean the glass carefully. Do not spray glass cleaner directly onto glass. Instead, apply the cleaner onto a cloth or paper towel, then wipe the glass. Glass cleaners that contain ammonia can damage wood finishes as well as the protective finishes on many metal handles and other hardware.

Avoid using harsh metal polishes for pulls and knobs. Most manufacturers recommend using mild soap and warm water to clean cabinet hardware. Buff the hardware with a clean, dry cloth.

Avoid using your dishcloth to clean or dry cabinets, as it may contain traces of detergent or grease.

How to adjust doors and drawers

Adjusting the doors is straightforward and requires only a Phillips screwdriver. The drawers may also be removed. Underneath the drawer are two clips that are attached to the guides. With the drawer fully extended, place one hand on each side and push the clip away from the drawer. Lift and the drawer will come put. To place back, align the drawer with the guides fully extended and push back into place. You should hear a "click" and the drawer should function as before.

How to touch up chips and scratches

Repair damaged finishes carefully. Because SOLLiD uses several processes and finishing materials, repairing a damaged finish can be a little tricky. For this reason, we recommend contacting your dealer to order one of our Touch Up Kits.
