Question:

How do I adjust kitchen shelves without damaging brackets?

I have Kitchen Craft wooden cabinets and want to adjust the shelves. The brackets are rigid plastic and pinch the shelf on top and bottom. You cannot pull out the shelves because the door blocks their removal.

Answer:

With needle-nose pliers, crimp the plastic bracket together. You will have to loosen each one this way before you can move the shelves up or down. These clips are very effective, so be sure you have the shelves where you want them placed. I do not know how many crimps the plastic can handle before it breaks. Contact Kitchen Craft for replacement shelf clips. They should send you some with no problems.

When cleaning kitchen cabinets of tough cooking grease,, there are a few commercial products that are very effective Be sure to read the back label to find the kitchen cleaning product that best suits your needs. You can also try using baking soda for a more environmentally friendly alternative or a mild detergent, such as that you would use to wash your dishes, to cut through grease. You can also try cleaning kitchen cabinet doors by combining a half cup borax, two tablespoons laudry detergent soap flakes, one tablespoon ammonia, and one gallon of warm water. Use full strength in spray bottle or add two cups to a pail of warm water. If any stickiness remains, try using baking soda as a scrub agent. Apply it directly to the area - it should remove any residue without harming the finish
