While cleaning your kitchen is typically part of your everyday routine after cooking, cleaning your kitchen cabinets may often be overlooked. Unfortunately, after months of cooking and not regularly cleaning the cabinets, they can collect lots of grime and grease. This is particularly noticeable with white cabinets. Here are a few tips on how to clean your kitchen cabinets:
If you have wooden cabinets, you can try some commercial cleaners like Magic Cabinet & Wood Cleaner or Murphy’s Oil Soap. Some recommend staying away from cleaners with silicone in them, and using mild dish soap and warm water instead.
You can also use a homemade cleaner by mixing equal parts of vinegar and warm water. Simply add the mixture to a spray bottle and spray the liquid on the cabinets, leaving it on for a few minutes before wiping it clean. If your cabinets still feel greasy or have collected extra grime, you can add dish detergent to the mixture. Dish detergent and vinegar are powerful and can easily combat grease.
You can use a sponge or cloth to clean your cabinets and drawers. For small spots, try using a toothbrush. Then, use a clean, wet towel to wipe the cleaner off the cabinets, followed by a dry towel to absorb any moisture. Don’t forget to clean inside of the cabinets and drawers as well.
For really tough spots, you can try making a paste from vinegar and salt and scrubbing the stained area with a soft toothbrush. Make sure to not scrub too hard or you may damage your cabinets.
