Cleaning Laminate Cabinets

Tips & Tricks: Keeping Your Cabinets Clean and Maintained

It’s easy to clean the most visible parts of your home such as flooring, kitchen, and bathrooms. But just as, if not more important, are the hidden spaces that we often times leave out of the cleaning process. It’s very easy for dust and dirt to accumulate, especially in the smaller less visible areas of your home, for example, cabinetry! If you own wood custom cabinets, it’s important to find the best way to keep them clean over time. Lucky for you, wood cabinets are easier to clean than other materials. In conclusion, we’ve put together great tips and tricks to help keep your cabinets clean from the inside out.

Make Dusting a Priority

If you’re running on a busy schedule and find little time to thoroughly clean your cabinets, be sure to at least dust them regularly. This will minimize the risk of dirt build-up and allergies in your home. Cabinets hold the dishes and Tupperware we use to eat. For that reason alone, keeping your wood cabinets clean should not be taken lightly. With a dry washcloth, rag or classic duster, wipe off both the interior and exterior parts of your cabinets. By following this simple step, you’ll be happy to know that the dust and dirt accumulation on your dishes will be reduced.

Wipe and Rinse

After dusting away your cabinets, take it to the next level by wiping them down with water. Yes, water! While dusting, you may come across stains and dirt that will need a little more than a soft dusting to remove. Before applying any chemicals to your laminate cabinets, it will help to first wipe them off with water. This will ensure that any leftover debris is out of the way. However, keep in mind that using too much water may stain your cabinets over time. A little will go a long way in this process. So, after wiping, be sure to rinse off your washcloth or rag before going in a second time. Without a simple rinse, you may be taking the dirt you just picked up and spreading it again.

Invest in Chemical Cleaners

Of course, dusting and wiping alone will keep your wood cabinets clean in the meantime. However, if you find that there are still stains left over, consider investing in safe chemical cleaners for your cabinets. There are various products available in your nearby hardware store that will help get the job done. Depending on what aspect of your cleaning you want to accomplish, whether it’s shiny, polished cabinets, or removing tough stains, be sure to purchase chemicals that are safe on the material of your cabinetry.
