It may be hard to believe, but your kitchen cabinets can be exposed to more dirt, bacteria, and grease than other parts of your home. Especially if kids are frequently opening and closing them, you live in a place where condensation from outer temperatures occurs, and not to mention the grease from cooking that may accumulate over time.
These tips, plus establishing a regular cleaning routine, will ensure your family’s health and some good looking wood cabinets throughout the years!
Tips to Clean Custom Wood Kitchen Cabinets
The best way to clean wood cabinets is with an oil/soap wood cleaner, but you can also clean them using everyday materials you probably already own:
- Detergent: use any oil/grease cutting dish or laundry soap and water. As a general rule, mix two cups of water with every cup of detergent. Be extra careful to not over wet the cabinets as it could ruin the finish! After applying the cleaning solution, clean it down with a damp cloth and then wipe down with a separate dry cloth.
- Vinegar: If you don’t have liquid-based detergents, vinegar and water are a valuable substitution. Vinegar is good for removing sticky films, most likely caused by dirty hands.
- Baking Soda: The hardest stains can be dealt with baking soda. Create a paste by mixing with water and then wipe it clean with a wet cloth.
For all of the above methods, you should first test them on a small area that is not very visible! Is better to wait a few hours to make sure the cabinet’s finish or color won’t be ruined before moving forward with the rest.
