menagetotal 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.

thefundu 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.

liezljayne 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.

maryancell001 Keeping the cabinet clean and also shiny requires the routine care.
For cleaning, you can use the mild dish detergent that is usually designed to cut the grease. Then, mix your detergent to the strength of the two parts warm water with one part of the detergent. Use a soft clean sponge to scrub the greese part. Also use vinegar with water in order to remove the sticky film on the cabinet doors.

MajesticMaids If you're doing a deep clean and want to really add that wow factor for the client I would recommend using a furniture polish after cleaning. Definitely takes some extra time though.
