The Best Way to Clean Kitchen Cabinets
Before you get started, remember to test each method on an inconspicuous part of your cabinets to test on your surface. Not all methods are safe for all surfaces.
We are going to start from simple to more robust. You can actually get most dirt and grime from your cabinets with just baking soda and water. Sprinkle a little baking soda on a damp sponge and start scrubbing. Rinse occasionally and add more baking soda as needed. You may just be amazed at what this simple cleaner can remove.
The water below was after I used this method on a few of my cabinets. There is so much cleaning power in a box of baking soda. This is definitely the place to start when cleaning kitchen cabinets. If you find the mess is too much for this method, however, you also have a few more tools you can try.
Mix baking soda and vinegar in a small bowl until it becomes a paste. Remember that when combining these two there will be a bubbling reaction. That is okay! Just mix until you get a paste like consistency.
Apply that paste to your sponge and start scrubbing those cabinets. Again rinse occasionally and add more paste as needed. Remove all residue with clean water once you are happy with the appearance of your cabinets.
I went over the SAME cabinets as when I just used baking soda. I wanted to see just how much more dirt I could get off with this method. The water below is definitely dirty! This may very well be the best way to clean kitchen cabinets!
I did however want to mention one more method. If you have cabinets that get a ton of grease splatter, the best cleaner is often the simplest. Dish washing liquid is meant to cut those greasy messes on dishes and it can do the same for your cabinets. Just add about 2 tablespoons of dish liquid to 2 cups of warm water. Mix this well and wipe down those cabinets. That greasy mess will be gone in no time!
