General Cleaning

Use all-purpose cleaners for most cabinets. Always check the label for compatibility and perform a spot test before using. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

Tough Stains

Reserve degreasers for heavy soiling and use them sparingly as they contain stronger agents. Regular, gentle cleaning helps avoid the need for heavy-duty solutions.

Eco-Friendly Alternatives

If you prefer eco-conscious cleaning, try these kitchen staples:

  • White Vinegar or Lemon Juice: Mix with water for greasy buildup.
  • Baking Soda or Club Soda: Great for removing stains.

Remember to test the cleaning solution in a hidden spot first, and rinse and dry after cleaning.

Wood-Stained Cabinets

Choose cleaners that are compatible with wood. Opt for wood furniture sprays for added assurance. Follow the usage instructions and spot-test even with labeled-safe products.

Hardware Care

Clean the cabinet hardware before cleaning the cabinets. Use appropriate cleaners for specific metals to prevent damage. Regular upkeep saves money on replacements. Pro Tip: Remove the hardware for easier cleaning.

By following these tips, your cabinets will stay beautiful and functional for years to come.
