Tips for Cleaning:

First you need to examine the finish of your cabinets before you begin cleaning.  Then gather the tools you will need, such as: a few microfiber cloths, a mild detergent, water, and a good furniture polish.

  • Begin by wiping your cabinets using a damp microfiber cloth. The damp cloth will trap the dust and successfully remove it.
  • Now you will need to make the cleaning solution. Simply mix a few drops of mild dish detergent in a bowl of hot water. NEVER make use of bleach or ammonia based cleaners to remove the grease. Using them will damage not only the look of the cabinets but also the wood.
  • Dampen a clean cloth with this prepared solution. Wash the cabinets gently but thoroughly.
  • Change the water as and when you feel it has gone dirty. Do not use the dirty water, as it would not be effective in cleaning.
  • Once you have washed the cabinets with cleaning solution, dry it with a clean towel. It will ensure that water does not remain on the cabinets and warp them.

It is advisable to keep a spray bottle with this mild solution handy for food splatters while cooking or other quick clean-ups. However, if you would like assistance with your housekeeping needs, The Maids New Jersey, in Perth Amboy would be happy to help!
