How to clean cabinets? Cleaning cabinets is an essential part of maintaining a tidy and hygienic kitchen or storage space.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to clean cabinets:
- Empty the cabinets: Remove all items from the cabinets to have easy access to the surfaces. This is also an opportunity to declutter and get rid of items you no longer need.
- Dusting: Use a microfiber cloth or a soft, lint-free cloth to wipe away any loose dust and debris from the cabinet surfaces, both inside and outside. Pay attention to corners and edges.
- Prepare a cleaning solution: Mix a few drops of mild dish soap or a small amount of all-purpose cleaner with warm water in a bucket or spray bottle. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that could damage the cabinet finish.
- Spot test: If you’re unsure about the cleaner’s impact on your cabinets, do a spot test in an inconspicuous area first to make sure it won’t cause discoloration or damage.
- Wipe down the cabinets: Dampen a soft cloth or sponge with the cleaning solution and gently clean the cabinet surfaces, including doors, handles, and knobs. For stubborn stains or grease, add a bit more soap to the cloth and continue to clean. Be careful not to soak the wood, especially if it’s not sealed.
- Dry the cabinets: Use a clean, dry cloth to wipe off any excess moisture from the cabinets to prevent water damage. Make sure no water seeps into the joints or crevices.
- Clean the interior: For the inside of the cabinets, remove any shelf liners or mats, if present.
- Reorganize and declutter: Before putting everything back into the cabinets, take the opportunity to reorganize and declutter your items. Dispose of expired or unnecessary items and organize the remaining items in a way that makes them easily accessible.
