Maintaining wooden kitchen cabinets

The kitchen maintenance tips mentioned here are not just for vintage white cabinets or white shaker kitchen cabinets, particularly. These tips are meant for all types of wooden kitchen cabinets that we generally find in kitchens. Have a look:

Tip 1

Regular dusting/grease removal

It is quite an accepted fact that the longer you keep the kitchen dusty and sticky the harder it will be for you to remove them. For simple dusting or buffing a soft cloth is enough. Our experts recommend you perform the dusting or grease removal as soon as you are done for the day at the kitchen. Both steam and grease are hard to avoid especially when you have to spend a considerable amount of time cooking. The more often you clean up the standard/white shaker cabinets the less you will allow grease, dust and steam to settle on the surface.

Tip 2

Cleaning kitchen units

We are sure you do not want to compromise on such lovely and natural furniture around the kitchen. A wipe down is definitely the most ideal way to maintain lustre of the furniture. Try it at least once in a week. The more often you clean it the better will be the results.

Tip 3


Grease as we all know build up every day at the kitchen and the furniture and countertops get maximum influenced because of grease deposition. They are sticky and difficult. Grease deposition is more common when you cook greasy foods. Besides, at times it becomes nearly unavoidable for you to touch the cabinet doors with greasy hands and fingers.

Take a soft and damp cloth and some significant amount of wood cleaner which will literally help you cut through such thick layers of grease which is otherwise a difficult task for most of us. However, when it comes to cleaning grease our experts recommend that you be a bit choosy about the products you pick. Some wood surface cleaners are extremely harsh and can lead to horrible impacts on the furniture and the environment. Besides, it’s not a good idea to expose your dear ones to toxic chemicals. So, just be careful in going through the label, before hitting the order button.
