28 Jul How to clean your kitchen cabinets
- Wipe your cabinets down with a damp, soft cloth. Microfiber cloths are especially good for this purpose and are often all that’s needed. If this doesn’t work, move on to the second method.
- Detergent can gently remove grease or grime. You will need three microfiber cloths.
- Mix a few tablespoons of dishwashing detergent (like Dawn) with about half a gallon warm water (no need to be precise in measurements).
- Moisten one microfiber cloth with the soapy water and wring it out, so the cloth is damp but not dripping. Wipe down the painted cabinets.
- Use the second cloth damp with plain water to wipe down the soap residue.
- Use the dry third cloth to dry the cabinet surface.
- A vinegar solution can remove any remaining tough grease.
- Combine one cup of vinegar, two cups of warm water, and one tablespoon of baking soda. Dip a microfiber cloth into the solution and wipe the stubborn greasy areas.
- Wipe down with a dry cloth.
- For heavy grease, you can spray or apply the solution and let sit for a couple of minutes before wiping down.
