Shelf liners are a good way of protecting utensils from hard surfaces and at the same time make the shelf attractive and neat. They are made of different material s and are placed flat on the shelf using adhesive or friction.

To place shelf lining, empty the shelf, clean it and eliminate residue of cleaning agents by using ammonia or alcohol. Measure all shelves to determine the size of the lining needed. Prepare the lining by cutting it to size on a flat surface; it should be a bit longer than the shelf to be lined to accommodate any irregularities in the shelf. For self adhesive liners, remove the backing and fit it carefully in the shelf while pressing down to ensure it sticks on the surface and for the non adhesive, place it in the shelf ensuring it fits snugly without any gaps. Repeat the process for every shelf and then replace the utensils.
