Kitchen cabinets can accumulate years of dirt, dust, and grime over time, making them not only unattractive but also unsafe to use. Unfortunately, cleaning out your cabinets can seem like an overwhelming task if you don’t know where to start! Luckily, we’ve put together this handy guide to help you clean your kitchen cabinets in no time at all. Cleaning kitchen cabinets doesn’t need to be hard! With these methods and tips for cleaning kitchen cabinets, you’ll have them looking as good as new in no time at all.
Remove all the items on your cabinets
First of all, take everything off the cabinets and wipe them down with an all-purpose cleaner and paper towels, or you may also resort to using the Lola® Anti-microbial Clean N' Wipe™ Cloth for that instant cleaning and disinfection.
Clean your cabinets with soap and water
There are many ways to clean the inside of your kitchen cabinets, but one of the simplest and most effective is using soap and water. Mix a generous amount of dish soap with water in a bucket or large bowl. Dip a Lola® Nylon Net & Sponge Cleaning Pad in the soapy water and then use it to wipe down the surfaces of your cabinets until they're clean. If you have grime on the cabinet handles, use another cloth dipped in soapy water for these hard-to-reach areas.
Scrub with baking soda
As one of the best cleaning supplies out there, baking soda is also great for kitchen cabinets. Mix baking soda with water in a spray bottle. Shake well before using and spray on cabinets until they're wet. Let sit at least five minutes before wiping down with a damp Wowables® The Reusable & Biodegradable Paper Towel.
Use a steam cleaner (if you have one)
If you have a steam cleaner, use it! You can use it on all the cabinets in your kitchen, as well as any drawers and shelving. It will take all the grime out of those cabinets without having to scrub.
Polish cabinet doors using vinegar, salt and water
Vinegar and salt are great for removing water spots from your kitchen cabinets and shelves. To remove water spots, mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 2 tablespoons of salt in a bowl. Dip a Lola® Jumbo Microfiber Cleaning Cloth into the mixture and wipe down the cabinet doors. Rinse well with water and dry off with another towel.
Make sure items are wiped clean and dry before putting them back
Before placing things back in your cabinets, you should wipe them down with a high-quality, reusable cloth, and the Lola® Cellulose Sponge Cloth (aka "Swedish Cloth") may just be the best bet for this task.
Cleaning and organizing kitchen cabinets can seem like an intimidating prospect if you have never done it before or are not sure where to start, but with the useful tips above, you’ll find that cleaning your kitchen cabinets doesn’t need to be difficult at all.
