Cabinet Care

Keeping your new kitchen cabinets or bathroom vanity is easy. Here are some tips to help you keep your cabinets looking beautiful for years. 

Caring for the Interior:

  • Simply wipe with a damp cloth or sponge, then dry immediately.

  • To remove food residue or grease, use any common dishwashing liquid and a clean damp cloth to wipe clean. Dry thoroughly.

  •  

For Spills: If a spill occurs, clean up and dry immediately. Left unattended, a spill can soak through the surface and cause damage.

 

Caring for Wood Surfaces

Do not use a dish cloth for cleaning. It could contain remnants of grease or detergents.

  • Wipe the surface with a clean, damp cloth, then dry immediately.

  • To remove general soil or grease, use any common dishwashing liquid and a clean damp cloth to wipe clean. Dry thoroughly.

  • Excess moisture can damage any cabinet finish; areas near the sink, range, dishwasher, oven, and baseboards are most susceptible. Keep these surfaces dry.

  • Avoid draping damp cloths or dish towels over cabinet doors. Over time, this moisture could cause permanent water damage.

  • Waxing is not necessary, but you may apply any furniture polish or lemon oil recommended for fine furniture, if desired. Be sure to wipe off excess to avoid buildup.

  • Bleach & Ammonia: Avoid using cleaners that contain bleach, ammonia, or abrasives. These cleaners can damage your cabinet’s finish.
