Cleaning Wood Kitchen Cabinets With Vinegar | A century ago, the types of materials which were being used for kitchen countertops were a whole different ball game from what exactly is being used today. Through out my remodeling career I have torn out many a well used countertop from homes which were built in early 1900’s and the original nailed down countertop was still being available. I have seen tops that had several layers of vinyl and then someone had installed a laminate, like Formica, on top of the layers of vinyl. Each home owner had added the newest and best product that had been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it’s almost work only to get caught up with every one of the new and or recycled products that are being used to fabricate countertops, especially since GREEN PRODUCTS movement has really began to pick up steam. Not only are companies using recycled glass but they are now using recycled paper and cardboard. Bamboo flooring has been out on the market for quite a while now but are you aware that you can purchase bamboo countertops. Plus, one company is even mixing recycled post consumer paper with bamboo fibers to produce their counter material. Scrap aluminum shavings is an additional material that is certainly now being blended with a resin to make, what I think, is probably the prettiest and quite a few novel countertops in lots of years.
