Instructions

  1. 1

    Remove loose dust with the hose attachment of a vacuum cleaner or brush the dust off the shelves with a small broom.

  2. 2

    Mix 2 cups water, 1/2 tsp dish soap and 1 tsp white vinegar in a spray bottle.

  3. 3

    Spray a mist of the cleaner onto the shelving and wipe off with a cleaning rag. Wipe down each wire, from the top and bottom.

  4. 4

    Continue until all build-up is removed, let the shelving air dry and place your items back on the shelf. If the items themselves need cleaned, wipe down with the same cleaning spray. The vinegar is a versatile disinfectant and deodoriser while the dish soap assists in the cleaning process.
