Stains, dust, smoke and steam, any kitchen in this world suffer from these four words and since the kitchen is the place where you prepare food, then it should be super clean. Cleaning your kitchen cupboard will be different from cleaning any other part of your home and for sure you know the reason; the satins and the smoke leave hard spots that may need some intervention from some stronger cleaning methods.
Most of the cleaning methods that we will be talking about here are so easy to make and most of us know their components very well. Just make sure to buy pair of kitchen gloves before you use any of the next mixings to protect your hands and your skin from any harm. The degreasing dishwashing soap is the first cleaning material we will talk about. Before I tell you about how to use it, you need to make sure to buy a dishwashing soap that has degreasing features and not the usual liquid one that we usually use in washing the dishes.
The degreasing dishwashing has stronger effects in removing the hard kitchen stains and it’s so easy to use, simply you will prepare a sponge, then bring the degreasing dishwashing soap and dissolve it with water, then dip the sponge in this mix and start scrubbing your kitchen cupboards till the stains are all removed. It’s very important to avoid using the degreaser directly without adding water to maintain the safety and the finish of your kitchen cupboard. After you finish scrubbing, make sure to wipe the cupboards with dry towel and enjoy your shining clean cupboards look.
Mixing a bucket of water with half cup of washing soda will be such a great mix that will clean your kitchen cupboards perfectly and guess what? You already know the steps, because it’s the same as mentioned above. You can replace the sponge with tooth brush; just make sure to scrub genteelly to avoid causing any scratches.
If you find the washing soda a bad or unsuitable idea for you, you can do the same mix using white vinegar instead. The white vinegar is a natural component that has strong cleaning power and it’s less harmful for your skin in the same time. If you decide to use vinegar instead of washing soda, pay attention to leave the kitchen cupboards dry naturally without any wiping.
Canola or vegetable oil with apple vinegar is an effective cleaning mix that gives amazing results as well, I know that the oil may not mix easily like the other materials I mentioned above, so making this mix in a jar will be a good idea. You will start by putting the previous two ingredients in the jar (apple vinegar and the oil) then you will close the jar and shake it well till these two materials mix well, dip an old piece of cloth in this mix and start cleaning your kitchen with it. After you finish wipe your kitchen cupboards with another clean cloth, this mix will leave your kitchen cabinets sparkling clean. You can also get the same results by replacing the apple vinegar with baking soda and follow the same previous steps.
If you don’t like mixing stuff, then look for a good wood polish spray, these sprays have amazing cleaning features and so more than easy to use. You will simply use a soft piece of rug, then add some spray on it and start wiping your kitchen gently. There are also tons of other cleaning products that are especially made for cleaning wood, so start looking for the best one that gives you the cleaning results you need.
Be careful when you clean your wooden kitchen cabinets to maintain them in good shape. For example, when you do the scrubbing or brushing step, make sure to scrub in the same direction to avoid any scratches and use gentle rags, brushes or sponges.
Applying a coat of polish or wax to your wooden kitchen after cleaning will be such a shiny idea that will even give a feeling of renovation to your kitchen. All the above materials are safe to use, but make sure not to mix several materials together; this may hurt you and your kitchen as well. Avoid applying any chemical material directly to your kitchen and always remember to dissolve them with water.
The surface or the top of the upper part of your kitchen cabinets is usually hard to reach and it usually contains a lot of dust and grease stains, so what about covering it with wax paper? The wax paper will be like a shield that prevents the greases and you can change it easily every once in a while.
Don’t forget to clean the knobs as well to get a full clean look, if your kitchen knobs are metal, you can easily wipe them with a cloth filled with water and vinegar mix and if they look very bad, soak them for awhile in a bucket filled with the same previous mix for couple of house or leave them soaked for a full night if necessary.
