A few weeks ago Mauricio started licking one of the kitchen cabinets and the drawer above it. No matter how many times we shooed him away, he kept going back. As that drawer and cabinet are next to the stove, I thought maybe we had slopped something on them when cooking so I wiped them down with some warm water.
Mauricio continued to return even after the wipe down. He could lick away for as much as a half-an-hour without his tongue tiring. I was starting to worry that he might lick off the finish.
I once again surveyed the exterior of the drawer and cabinet thoroughly and couldn’t see anything, and they didn’t feel sticky or goopy. The sniff test brought no answer. This time I cleaned the area with a Clorox® Wipe. That had to have done the job. Right?
Wrong! Back Mauricio went to his job of licking, slurping and supposedly cleaning. For me, the next step was Windex® Multi-Surface Cleaner. Yippee! That seemed to do the trick, at least until today at lunchtime. Mauricio was at it again.
Tom baked bread yesterday, and the big mixer is on a lift inside the oft-tongued cabinet. I thought maybe he had spilled something on the front, but again the surface appeared clean and had no odor.
As I am writing this, Mauricio is back at it again. He has spent more time working on the glass drawer pull than in the past. Of course, because I have been busy writing this post, I have not as yet washed down the cabinet and drawer.
When I am finished I will have to see if he has successfully done the job for me or if I need to break out the Windex®.
