You'll be delighted to know that sliding door wardrobes need very little maintenance. Our diy wardrobe doors are easy to clean, scratch and fade resistant.
It is however important to keep the bottom track clear as they can often become clogged with dust, debris and pet hair, which may result in the doors sticking. Each time you vacuum, make sure that you vacuum the sliding door tracks too. It'll help them stay clear and gliding for years.
For an even smoother run you can spray the top and bottom tracks with a small squirt of silicone lubricant occasionally. This will keep them gliding rather than sliding.
Cleaning mirrors can be frustrating, no matter ow many times you go over them there always seems to be a smear. So throw away your commercial cleaner and use the vinegar solution I recommend.
Glass and mirror sliding doors can be cleaned with a squirt of water and white vinegar, I fill a spray bottle about an inch from the top with water, and then top up with white vinegar.
It makes a great glass cleaner, is very cheap and lasts for ages. If you don't like the vinegar smell, although it doesn't linger, you can add some essential oil as well.
Then polish your sliding door wardrobes with a lint free cloth. Some people swear by polishing with crumpled up newspaper or paper towels. If your doors are very dirty you might want to preclean first with a non abrasive cloth and plain water. Then polish.
Take care not to get vinegar solution on the frames or moving parts. A little won't harm but it can cause deterioration over time.
For wood grain doors and frames simply wipe over with a damp cloth.Go to Home page
