Keeping your Cabinets Looking Beautiful
Use a soft cotton cloth dampened with warm water is usually sufficient to clean your cabinets. If a more thorough cleaning is required, use mild hand dishwashing liquid mixed with warm water.
- After cleaning, wipe all surfaces with a clean, damp cloth. Dry immediately using another clean cloth.
- Clean them regularly and as needed.
CLEANING PRODUCTS TO AVOID
The following products are to be avoided as damage may appear:
- Harsh detergents, strong soaps, abrasive cleaning products such as tub and sink cleaners, scouring powder, scouring pads, steel wool or self polishing waxes.
- Sponges or dish cloths. They may contain particles that could scratch your cabinets, or they may contain food and oil residue or remnants of harsh cleaning solutions (Magic Erasers are ok to use infrequently for stubborn stain. Do NOT use on stained finishes. White only.
- Solvent-based or petroleum-based products such as mineral spirits, nail-polish removers or paint thinners.
- Ammonia, bleach or cleaning products that include either (Fabuloso, 409, Pledge etc.)
- Silicone-based cleaning, waxing, or polishing products.
SPLATTERS AND SPILLS
Clean spills and splatters immediately. Prolonged exposure to spills, including food, water or other liquids, or to oil and grease splatters, can cause permanent discoloration or damage to your cabinet’s finish. Remember to dry cabinet surfaces immediately after cleaning using a soft, clean cloth.
Use a clean, soft lint-free cotton cloth for regular dusting. Packaged dusting sheets are not required or recommended. Do not use pre-moistened dusting sheets, and do not use aerosol products made for dusting.
CLEANING GLASS DOORS
Extra care is required when cleaning glass doors. Spray an ammonia-free glass cleaner on a clean, soft, lint free cloth or paper towel. Do not spray cleaner directly on the glass. It could seep behind the window dividers and cause damage.
SCRATCHES, GOUGES AND NICKS
A Touch-Up Kit is provided to hide surface damage. Remember sharp objects will not only damage the paint for your wood doors. Use caution when putting away silverware and knives.
