Are your kitchen shelves lined with paper?

Not paper; that rubber shelf/drawer liner. That's what my mom always did, so when I put together our first home, I did the same thing. Been that way ever since.

No. It's like a kind of soft squishy fabric roll stuff. Pretty sure that's the official name for it.

Yes, it was the first thing we did when we moved in here, because the cupboards were all very gross. I mean dead bugs & exploded cans in them gross, so after they were all given a good scrubbing, we lined them with contact paper just to be certain our own dishes & food did not have contact with the original surfaces. Eventually I want to replace the cabinets, but until then, contact paper it is.

No. They were at my old house and the paper was old and kind of gross. I wouldn't go out of my way to line the shelves.

When I installed my new kitchen I put in the plastic shelf liner.  Periodically I remove it and wash it. The wooden surface that is the bottom of the cabinet is not as easy to wash and sanitize.  Since I store my glasses face down (as you are supposed to) I like to be sure they are on a clean surface. The plastic washable liner provides that.  It's like what I have used in the restaurants I worked in over the years.
