  1. What a great tip!

  2. I just did this and I feel I deserve a gold star. What a chore, but so rewarding after its done. Thanks for the tip!

  3. I use foil then put a string of clear christmas lights up there. It looks like I have over the cabinet lighting. The foil helps reflect the light. I buy the foil at the dollar store then recycle it when it is dirty.
