Avoid Anything Abrasive

Don’t use anything harsh or abrasive to clean your kitchen doors and cabinets as it will cause scratches and scuffs. This means you need to avoid cleaning materials like sponges, scouring pads, paper towels, and brushes. Instead, use a soft microfiber cloth or sponge to ensure your cabinets’ finishings stay intact.

Wipe Down Regularly

Make it a habit to wipe down your kitchen doors and cabinets daily using a microfiber cloth, whether there’s a stain or not.

Also, try to clean spills and stains off your doors while they are still fresh. An easy way to make this a habit is to clean the doors and cabinet after your daily routine in the kitchen.

Use Mild Dishwashing Liquid

If a damp cloth is enough to clean off the stains on your cabinet, then use it. However, if it requires soap, use a dishwashing soap mixed with warm water.

Avoid cleaners like detergent, ammonia, bleaches at all costs.

You can also create your detergent: mild enough not to cause any harm and tough enough to get rid of stains.

  •  1 cup vinegar
  •  2 cups warm water

Mix all ingredients in a bucket, and you get a good cleaning solution!
