Preventative Measures

Spilled something on your beautiful kitchen cabinets? Clean it up as soon as possible. The best way to care for your cabinets is preventing damage or dirt from building up. Don’t let problems stack up because it will only make cleaning your cabinetry more difficult in the future. You should also be dusting your cabinets frequently with a cloth.

Some Basic Tips

If you do need to clean your cabinets, it’s pretty easy. Just wipe down your cabinetry with a clean, damp cloth and a basic solution, like dishwashing liquid, and warm water. After you’re done wiping it down, dry your cabinets thoroughly with another soft cloth by rubbing gently, following the direction of the grain. If you’re cleaning glass panels, don’t spray glass cleaner directly on the glass. Spray it on your cloth then wipe it down.

Mistakes To Watch Out For

As easy as cleaning may be, there are nonetheless a few things to watch out for. Using harsher cleaners can actually break down the protective coatings of your finishing. If you scrub too hard or use abrasive pads or cleaners, you can do the same thing. Don’t leave any damp materials on your wood cabinets after you’re done cleaning them. Lastly, avoid cleanings and polishes containing silicone, as they can cause damage to some finishes.
