After your kitchen cabinets have been installed, periodic maintenance is required to keep them looking new. Oil, grease and dust can accumulate and eventually affect the finish.
Both the exterior and interior of your cabinets can be cleaned with a damp microfiber cloth. Immediately dry with a clean cloth. If you are looking to remove oil or grease, use a dampened cloth with a mild soap (such as Dawn for dishes). Rinse with a clean, damp cloth; then dry thoroughly with a clean, dry cloth.
Never use harsh detergents, soaps, abrasive cleaners or self-polishing waxes. All of these can damage the cabinet finish. Also, do not use your dishcloth to dry or wipe down cabinets – it main contain remnants of grease or detergents.
If you have glass inserts in your doors, the glass can be cleaned with ammonia-free glass cleaner. Never spray the glass directly; spray a clean, lint-free cloth and wipe the glass to a streak-free clean.
With proper care, your cabinets will look good for years to come.
