Why does everything have to be so friggin' hard?
I thought it would be great to have so many kitchen cabinets. That was before I tried to clean the buggers. The finish is so grubby that they require actual scrubbing, and in the twenty years they've been there I don't think anybody has ever removed the drawers and cleaned out the frames. But that's only the half of it.
The issue here is Contact Paper. There are three different patterns. One of them is the normal stuff that peels off. Two are on there with what has to be some kind of industrial glue. And it. is. everywhere.
It took all my strength to get it ripped off of two drawer bottoms, and the sticky residue that was left is just not coming off. I've tried everything I can think of, and none of it has any effect on the goo.
Given that we're planning to replace these somewhere along the way, I think I'm just going to have to buy new paper and stick it on top of the old, worn out stuff. Man, I hate that idea.
No point here, by the way. Just venting.
