5 Best Wine Cellar Cleaning Tips
27 Jul, 2016 Wine Cellar
Dusting may be the only thing that comes to mind when you talk about wine cellar cleaning tips. It may be that we get scared of breaking the bottles or just merely thinking about cleaning the wine cellar seems complicated. However, the high humidity in your wine cellar may cause fungi and mildew accumulation.
Learn from these top 5 wine cellar cleaning tips.
Use Soft Cloth
Do not try to use rough cloth to remove the mold or dirt from your wine bottles – you will scratch them! If molds have accumulated your wine label, there’s literally nothing you can do about it. Don’t bother scrubbing the wine label anyway.
Rinse The Bottles
You have to be extra careful with rinsing your wine bottle though. Place at least 3 wine bottles at a time in a basket with a towel and carefully rinse them one by one. Avoid using harsh soap, as it will damage the wine bottle. You may choose to use a shampoo and softly rub the bottle with your hands.
Restore Wood Racks
One easily way to restore the beauty of your wooden unstained wine rack is by using a grit or finer sandpaper. No matter how old your wine rack is, sanding it down can do the trick.
Inspect Bottle Corks
Any irregularities in your wine bottle corks may mean that it has been compromised. If you just recently bought your wine without consuming it yet, you may have it exchanged where you bought it. Not to worry though, you may just consume it and don’t use the bottle anymore once the wine is completely consumed.
Insulate The Cellar
Ever wondered why mold and mildew constantly accumulate your wine cellar? Have an HVAC expert inspect the room and what needs to be improved with the insulation and temperature setting.
