Good old fashioned sugar soap is what you needSugar Soap FanI love the Matt black look of the kunsbacka and I’m happy, too with the functionality and design of my IKEA kitchen. It’s true that marks are visible. However, I was so keen on it that I went ahead regard;ess of the reviews; I don’t regret it. I wipe the doors down with Tetrion ready to use sugar soap - comes in a spray bottle - and an e-cloth. I have no connection whatsoever to either of these companies I just thought I would tell you exactly what I use so that you can try it or yourself.5
Avoid-only looks good short termRosytoes27Hard to clean. Doesn’t look good for long. Streaks cannot be removed no matter what is used. What a shame. It’s lovely at the beginning. Would choose differently if we’d known.1
BoycottikeaCannot keep clean, NO products work to remove fingerprints or marks, Ikea deem them fit for purpose nonetheless and we are left with a kitchen we hate.1
Impossible to keep clean.Barry1974First off, I love Ikea and it's products and the following review relates only to the Kungsbacka door fronts etc, everything else about the kitchen I would easily score 4 or 5 star however the door fronts are simply awful. Ikea was our first port of call when it came to replacing our 10 year old kitchen, however I really wish that I had read the reviews for the Kungsbacka fronts as I can only concur with the reviews before mines. We fell in love with the sleek modern style in the Matt Anthracite colour and we were delighted when we first installed them in our kitchen, they really did look fantastic...... but like the other reviewers before me, they don't look great for very long and soon become very grubby and no matter what cleaning methods to use, they just look streaky, grubby and unsightly. I even used a steam cleaner to clean them but nothing I have tried seems to work and a quick Google search reveals that in not alone in experiencing this issue. Again, it's a shane as as they look soooo good when you first instal l them but it only takes a matter of weeks for you to completely regret your choice. Don't make the same mistake as me.1
Cleaning question...DoordivaI love these doors and really are the only ones I want, but hesitant to buy them due to the cleaning issues. My question is, has anyone tried using sugar soap to remove the stubborn marks?3
Make sure you buy a magic spongeGeeraTwo years ago I took my door into IKEA so they could clean it for me. They tried everything and then used a magic sponge. You need to really, really scrub it to get the grease marks off but it somewhat comes off. I hope this helps others.1
Impractical material for the kitchenAnastasjaSleek, modern, great looking until you use the kitchen.... Ikea advice was to clean them immediately.... this does not leave the doors as new and was impractical advice. Soapy water does not leave them streak free and clean looking. Appearance rating relates to showroom appearance! Ikea please advise on how to easily clean this material because otherwise my doors and side panels will need to be returned.1
Impossible to clean- have tried everything!!PT55340These doors- where do we start! Looked great in Ikea under subtle light but my goodness you cannot keep them clean, they are impossible. You cannot remove the faintest of marks off the black ones , not sure about the white but steer clear of the black! Our kitchen looks dirty as the doors show up every fingerprint. Would NOT recommended and think Ikea should recall.1
Impossible to cleanBoxd_inI bought these for my kitchen late last year, they looked great for about a month but the moment they get grease on them or even water it is impossible to get the marks off2
Impossible to keep cleanJohn & AnnabelAfter protracted delivery issues with the new Kungsbacka we updated our whole kitchen in early 2018. At first the matt finish looked terrific. Soon it became clear that finger marks and drips were hard to remove. Looking terrible in bright sunlight. We searched high and low for cleaning tips. Eventually we settled on Dove soap, wipe off then buff hard with microfibre cloth. Then repeat twice daily. It must be absorbing moisture and grease. We and loads of disappointed customers need a solution quickly. Changing all doors is just too expensive. HELP2
DisappointedI love ikea products but wasted my money on this kitchen, it’s only been in since May and looks really shabby, the doors are porous so any water that comes into contact with it soaks in and stains, finger marks do not come off. I have complained about this and have been told it’s not a manufacturer fault , who makes kitchens that can’t be touched or come into contact with any water and simply soaks in and stains sadly there were no reviews when I purchased this kitchen so I would hate for anyone to spend a fortune on this and be as disappointed as I am.1

Modern look, "old" materials

To us, waste is a resource, not a problem and we're proud to give new life to old materials. Like with KUNGSBACKA kitchen fronts. Their striking matt black finish and chamfered edges bring a modern, streamlined look to your kitchen. They're made of recycled wood, covered with a plastic foil made from recycled PET bottles. KUNGSBACKA is a great front that doesn't use new wood, and doesn't need new plastic made from oil. A sustainable choice without compromising on quality, design or price.

Scrapped PET bottles get new lives in the kitchen

How can we at IKEA contribute to more sustainable interior design? Would it be possible to save some of the earth's resources by using recycled waste? Product Developer Anna Granath and her kitchen colleagues contacted one of their best suppliers and together they explored the opportunities that waste has to offer. The result is KUNGSBACKA kitchen front made from recycled wood and recycled PET bottles.

Do you sometimes buy bottled water? If the answer is yes, you’re not alone. Each year, approximately 100 billion PET bottles are consumed worldwide. And this number only reflects bottled water, add soft drinks to the picture and the number is much higher. But what actually happens to all these bottles? Some of them, approximately 30%, are recycled as material for new products, while 70 billion bottles become waste or are discarded directly into the sea or in landfills. The fact that so much plastic is thrown away is not sustainable for the world. This is partly because plastic is made from oil, a natural resource which will run out one day, and partly because it takes a very long time for plastic to break down. Did you know that it takes each bottle an astonishing 700 to 1,000 years to break down?

See waste as a resource

We need to be better at using the earth's resources wisely and we must start seeing billions of discarded PET bottles as the resource which they actually are. This is the standpoint of Anna Granath and her colleagues, who develop new kitchens for IKEA. "Our products are bought by a lot of people, and by offering more sustainable alternatives, we actually have the opportunity to contribute to a change," says Anna. "So we started looking at how we could replace new materials with recycled materials in our kitchen range." This idea was the run-up to a close cooperation with supplier and designers. Together they developed KUNGSBACKA kitchen front which consists of a particleboard made from recycled wood wrapped in plastic film made from recycled PET bottles. The big challenge was to get to know the properties of the plastic in order to achieve the same qualities as a virgin material. "The whole team behind the kitchen front is proud. We've all worked hard to not compromise on anything. Not when it comes to design, quality, functionality, or price, and especially not when it comes to the sustainability aspects. It feels great, deep down in the bottom of our hearts".

New life becomes a longer life

For each door's matt black surface, plastic from 25 half-litre bottles is used. This might not sound like a lot, but for Anna and her colleagues, KUNGSBACKA is an important first step on the journey towards an end to the use of virgin, oil-based plastic. "We must find alternatives for recycling which has a significant and long-lasting impact, where we don't just think about our generation, but for all generations to come". In KUNGSBACKA, the plastic bottles get a new life, but also a much longer life. You'll probably finish a bottle of water within 25 minutes. But if it’s recycled and converted into plastic film on a kitchen front, the same plastic gets a lifetime of at least 25 years. And then a new recycled life hopefully awaits in a completely different context.
