Cabinet Care

Kitchen cabinets should be dusted or cleaned periodically like any wood furniture, and should require minimal maintenance.
  • Clean all spills or water immediately -­ wood cabinets should be kept dry.
  • Dust cabinets with a lightly damp cloth. Follow the grain of the wood when dusting ­as wiping across the grain can cause scratches.
  • Use only clean, soft cloths. Do not use dish towels as they can contain grease.
  • Mild dishwashing detergents and warm water can be used for more thorough cleaning of cabinets. Baking soda and/or vinegar can be used as well.
  • Waxing or polishing is not recommended as this can create a film or wax build-up on your cabinetry.
  • Always test all products on a small, non-visible spot of your cabinetry before use.
  • Always dry cabinets immediately after cleaning.
A touch up/repair kit is available for purchase to hide or repair minor scratches, blemishes, or damages. Contact the retailer where you purchased your cabinetry to purchase a touch up/repair kit for your specific door style of cabinetry.
