How To Clean Your Kitchen Cabinets
When you invest in good quality wood cabinets, you’ll want to do everything you can to keep them in great condition and protect them from wear and tear. In this blog, we share our expert tips on how to clean your kitchen cabinets and protect them from premature wear.
Wipe up all food and water splatters immediately with a damp cloth and then dry with a towel. Acting quickly will help to prevent water damage to the wood and paint, and stains won’t have a chance to set in.
Use The Right Cleaning Supplies
We recommend that all our clients add warm water to a spray bottle and add in a couple drops of dish detergent for cabinets that are extra greasy. This is all that’s needed to effectively and gently clean your wood cabinets.
When cleaning your cabinets, always do a small spot test first before performing a deep clean. Work carefully and use a soft-bristled toothbrush to get into crevices and hard to reach areas. Always do your best to dry your cabinets thoroughly after cleaning and cooking to avoid water damage.
What To Avoid
Although a quick Google search may recommend it, we advise against the use of olive oil and baking soda, or disinfectant wipes on your wood cabinets as this may damage the paint. Don’t use anything abrasive or harsh when cleaning your cabinets.
Keep It Simple
Cleaning your kitchen cabinets shouldn’t be overly complicated if you follow our recommendations. It should never be a comprehensive job if you keep up with daily wipedowns after cooking. Also, remember that some wear and tear is natural over time.
