How to Properly Clean Your Kitchen Cabinets

July 23, 2021 | Blog

It’s easy to spill grease or baking batter all over the cabinets when cooking in the kitchen, and different finishes need different cleaning methods. Whether it’s stained, painted, or laminate, all cabinets need special attention and needs. At Legacy Bath and Kitchen, we know how to care for all kinds of cabinets. Fight the grease and grime with these tips and tricks to help you keep your cabinets looking their best!

Stained Wood Cabinets

There’s nothing like beautiful stained wood cabinets to complete the look and feel of your kitchen. But with all the action happening in and around the kitchen, it’s only a matter of time until your cabinets are looking dirty.

You’ll want to clean and oil your stained wood cabinets about once or twice a year. To clean them, you’ll need a mixture of seven-eighths distilled white vinegar and one-eighth rubbing alcohol, and a few drops of dish soap. You’ll want to wipe the cabinets with this solution with a cloth and then rinse with warm water. Finish with furniture oil that has beeswax to keep your cabinets looking fresh and clean for a long time.

Painted Cabinets

Having painted cabinets is a great way to add a pop of color to your kitchen and bathroom, making the space feel unique and special to you and your family. But, even painted cabinets need to be cleaned every now and then!

Painted cabinets need to be cleaned with a gentle cleanser and then rinsed and dried. It’s important not to use a harsh cleaner or else the cleaner will end up removing the paint from the cabinet. You can even make your own gentle cleanser! Mix up clear, distilled white vinegar and few drops of dish soap. Put this solution into a spray bottle so you can control the amount better. Follow up by wiping the cabinets down with a damp cloth and then finish by drying the cabinets with a dry cloth.

Black Cabinets

Black cabinets are great for creating a sleek and modern look. But, these chic cabinets need their own special care, whether the cabinets are painted black or stained ebony. Due to the dark color, it’ll be easy to spot any spills. Dust will also show on these cabinets. But, it’s pretty easy to manage – wipe down the cabinets with a damp cloth about every week or so to keep them looking clean.

White Cabinets

Similar to black cabinets, white cabinets are great for achieving a modern look. Also like black cabinets, they often show every scrape and spill. Furthermore, you’ll need to wipe down white cabinets with a damp cloth every week. It’s also a good idea to prepare for scrapes with white cabinets.

Laminate Cabinets

Laminate cabinets are one of the easiest to clean. Unlike wood, laminate cabinets don’t absorb any of the dirt or grease. A damp cloth and a bit of elbow grease once a week should keep those laminate cabinets shiny and sleek. For a deep clean, the homemade solution for stained wood cabinets is also a great cleaning agent for laminate cabinets.
