Does shelf liner attract bugs?
We carefully lined all our shelves with shelf paper before our board of health inspection–and FAILED because of it. Actual paper (as opposed to the plastic liners) attracts pests that eat it. Lining shelves can also give food a place to hide between thorough cleanings. So it’s not recommended.
Should I paint inside kitchen cabinets?
Painting inside kitchen cabinets doesn’t matter either way. The wood already has protection against oil vapors, so painting inside isn’t necessary. It may also be difficult, but doing so can add visual stimulation to a boring kitchen. If you want to redo your kitchen, painting the cabinets is an easy option.

Which side of shelf liner goes down?
If ribbed side is down, it may trap moisture and cause problems with shelf finish. I always use ribbed liner because you never know when the purpose of a shelf will change to dishes and glassware. 3 of 3 found this helpful.
How do I keep my shelf liner from slipping?
If you want to make sure the plastic shelf liner doesn’t slip, put a little blob of reusable mounting putty in each corner. Load up your shelves and drawers!
Do I really need shelf liners?
Do You Really Need Shelf & Drawer Liner? Protect Cabinets and Shelves from Moisture and Stains – Shelf liner is designed to keep surfaces clean and dry, protecting them from moisture and stains. Lining each shelf before you get organized will protect your shelves for years to come.
