Steps to Disinfect and Clean Your Kitchen Cabinets
Cabinets are made of wood and so there are different ways that they need to be cleaned. It is important to follow these steps to keep your cabinets looking good as new!
Wash With Warm Soapy Water
First, wipe down all surfaces with a damp sponge or cloth.
Wooden cabinets are susceptible to damage from bleach and ammonia, so don’t use these chemicals when cleaning. Instead, try a natural option like vinegar. One way is to mix water and vinegar in equal parts in a spray bottle. You can use this on the kitchen cabinet doors, shelves and drawers. Let it sit for at least 10 minutes before rinsing with a clean cloth. If there are any stubborn stains or odors, add some lemon juice or baking soda as well.
Dry it Well
Wooden cabinets are a natural material, so they’re not immune to mold and bacteria. After you have sprayed your cabinets, make sure to dry the cabinets thoroughly with a lint-free cloth or paper towel.
Ventilate Your Kitchen
Ventilate the room after spraying by opening windows. You will want to open windows, turn on fans or switch on an exhaust fan until all traces of vinegar smell have dissipated (typically around 20-30 minutes).
