How to Clean the Kitchen Cabinets the Right Way

Many areas in the house go overlooked when we clean, but the kitchen cabinets might be the biggest one of all. Cleaning and maintaining the cabinets is just as important as scrubbing the kitchen sink, especially if you have open shelving! Learn how to clean the cabinets the right way, and call Misty Clean for some professional assistance!

How Often Should I Clean the Kitchen Cabinets?

It’s important to wipe down the exterior of the kitchen cabinets at least once a week. Bacteria can linger on the cabinet doors and handles, so wiping them down helps to eliminate the spread of germs. Any cabinetry near the cooking station or backsplash should be wiped down every time you prepare a meal. 

The interior of the kitchen cabinets needs to be deep-cleaned once every three months. Depending on how often you use a certain cabinet, you may need to clean its interior more often. 

How to Deep-Clean the Cabinets 

Cleaning the kitchen cabinets requires time, so ensure that you have the morning or afternoon to commit to the chore. Empty the cabinet that you plan to clean, starting with the bowls or cups on the highest shelf. Place them in a safe place to keep them while you clean. Start by vacuuming the interior of the cabinets, if necessary. Then, rinse the shelves with a damp microfiber cloth. Use a mild mixture of soap and water to scrub the back corners of the shelves and any areas that seem particularly unclean. 

Your kitchen cabinetry may require careful care depending on the style or material of cabinetry. Before you clean, do your research to make sure that you can use soap or water on the interior of the cabinets. Some materials require alternative cleaning methods. If you’re unsure how to properly clean your kitchen cabinets, trust the professionals to help!
