How to Clean Your Cabinetry

Cleaning your kitchen cabinets can be a daunting task. With all the shelves, drawers, and nooks and crannies, you may never think your cabinets are clean enough. But with the right cleaning products and tools, you’ll be able to reach every corner of your kitchen without breaking a sweat.

In this guide, we’ll cover everything from scrubbing down cabinets to polishing up hardware. Before we get started, let’s run through a few tips for cleaning your kitchen cabinets:

  1. Remove all items from your cabinets. To clean your cabinetry, the first step is to remove all items from your cabinets. This includes any dishes, glasses, or other kitchenware that may be stored in your cabinets. It’s important to clear everything out so that you can properly clean all surfaces, corners, and crevices.
  2. Use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe down the exterior surface of each cabinet, removing any dirt or dust particles that have accumulated there. You may also want to use an all-purpose cleaner on this step to help remove stubborn stains or spots that may have accumulated over time.
  3. Clean the glass doors using a damp cloth or sponge dipped in warm water and mild detergent solution (if necessary). Dry thoroughly with a soft towel or newspaper before moving on to the next step in order to prevent any streaks from forming on them later on during this process.
  4. If you see any scratches or marks on your doors, use a fine grit sandpaper (such as 220 grit) to gently rub away these imperfections until they are gone (this will probably take some time). Be careful not to damage any paintwork when doing so however as it may cause more problems than it solves.

If you put in a lot of time and effort into decorating your kitchen, you’ll want to keep it looking nice for as long as possible by following these tips for how to clean your cabinets.
