Cabinet Care 101: Tips for Keeping Your Kitchen Cabinets Looking New

  • Establish a Cleaning Routine: Establish a cleaning routine that includes your kitchen cabinets. The outside of the cabinets should be cleaned a couple of times a month to remove dirt, grease, and grime buildup. Once every few months, we recommend taking the cabinet contents out and cleaning the interior in addition to the exterior. Doing this regularly will ensure your kitchen cabinets are always looking good and will be easier to maintain in the future. Something as simple as a gentle cleanser or a mixture of warm water and a mild dish soap will do the trick; just ensure to avoid abrasive cleaners or rough sponges that could damage the cabinets’ finish.
  • Use Cabinet Liners: Cabinet liners are an inexpensive way to protect the shelves and drawers from scratches, stains, and spills. Additionally, cleaning your kitchen cabinets is easier when liners are installed, as they provide an additional layer of protection by catching spills before they reach cabinet surfaces.
  • Quick Cleanup: Spills and splatters are expected in the kitchen, but be sure to wipe up any spills promptly. This will prevent staining and damage to cabinet surfaces. Spills can be simply wiped up with a damp cloth.

By following these simple yet effective tips, you can ensure your kitchen cabinets will look like new for years to come.
