“Deep clean cabinet fronts” is code for “give those cabinet doors a wipe down.”
With the continual opening and closing of kitchen cabinet doors, oils and dirt from hands are often left behind on the door. It’s just a normal part of wear and tear. That doesn’t mean your cabinets can’t stay looking new. You just need to periodically wipe them down.
Step 25 :: Deep Clean Cabinet Fronts
If you have light color cabinets, you can probably see the dirt covering your cabinets. If you have dark cabinets, you may not be able to see the dirt, but rest assured it’s there! Take a few minutes today to scrub down the cabinets. Here’s how.
- Soft cloth. You don’t want to use an abrasive material to clean the cabinets or you could scratch the wood/coating.
- Scraper. My favorite tool! It will help you remove that stuck on gunk without damaging your cabinets.
- All purpose cleaner. Equal parts vinegar and water mixture will work just as well.
Starting on one side of the upper level cabinets, spray the all purpose cleaner and wipe down the entire cabinet. Pay particular attention to areas hands touch often like the knobs and corners. As you come across dried food spatters, use the scraper to easily remove.
When one cabinet is finished, continue to the side to complete the entire top level of cabinets. Then move to the bottom.
Cleaning your cabinets is a simple task but can make a big impact in the cleanliness of your kitchen!
