Won't Miss #120 - paper doors

My doors on a rainy day.

Doors in most places are covered with paper. I'm not even talking about shoji, the well-known doors that look like window frameworks with paper. Regular doors are hollow wood or flimsy aluminum or wood frameworks with paper on them. The paper looks nice when it is very new, but you can't clean it and it gets wrinkled when it is humid. If you move to a different place and the paper on the doors in your old apartment gets damaged or soiled in anyway (which is very easy to do), you will see some of your cleaning deposit money vanish.

I won't miss these cheap doors which are not washable, are flimsy, and appear to be designed to force you to surrender part of your cleaning deposit.
