Materials To Clean Kitchen Cabinets

Cleaning kitchen cabinets laregly depends on the type of cabinets you own. However, for general cabinet cleaning tips, consider the following materials:
  1. All-Purpose Cleaner
  2. Nonabrasive All-Purpose Cleaner
  3. Detergent & Water
  4. Vinegar & Water
  5. Baking Soda & Water
How To Clean Wood Cabinets

The best way to clean wood cabinets is by purchasing an oil-soap wood cleaner. Many can be purchased relatively cheap from your local hardware store. On the other hand, you could clean your wooden cabinets using everyday materials you probably already own.
  • Detergent: Homeowners can use any oil/grease cutting dish or laundry detergent and water to clean their wood cabinets. As a general rule, you should mix two cups of water with every cup of detergent. Donít overwet the cabinets as it could ruin the finish. After applying the cleaning solution, wipe it down with a damp cloth and then wipe down with a separate dry cloth.
  • Vinegar: If you donít have liquid-based detergents, vinegar and water is a valuable substitution. Vinegar is good for removing sticky films most likely caused by dirty hands.
  • Baking Soda: The hardest stains should be confronted with baking soda. Create a paste by mixing with water and then wipe it clean with a wet cloth.
As with all our methods discussed, homeowners should test the chosen supplies on small areas that are not easily noticeable. Wait a few hours before tackling more visible cabinets to make sure you are not ruining the finish or color.

A lot of useful info for cleaning the woods. I never cleaned the wood furniture like this instead I used soapy water soaked cloth. I think that fades the polish and also decreases the life.

Mix a 50/50 solution of vinegar and warm water and put into a spray bottle. Mist on cabinets, let sit for a minute or two and then wipe clean with a soft cloth. Add a few drops of liquid dishwashing detergent to the vinegar and water solution to clean extremely grimy cabinets.

Oiled & waxed wood surfaces clean different. Bona Wood Floor Cleaner would be suitable for both types
