Clean away the grime.
(Debbie Williams)

Mix 2 tablespoons of Dawn dish soap with 2 cups of warm water and scrub the cabinet with a clean cloth, following the grain of the wood. Rinse the area clean with a sponge, and dry it with a clean towel.

Dish soap is mild and effective.

Sprinkle baking soda onto a clean damp cloth and scrub the cabinet. Rinse with a clean sponge, and dry the area with a clean dry towel.

Baking soda will not scratch the cabinets.

Add 1 cup white vinegar to the Dawn dish soap and water mixture. The solution is now 2 cups water, 2 tablespoons dish soap and 1 cup white vinegar.

White vinegar is a household wonder cleaner.

If you need to be still more aggressive, add half a cup of borax to the dish soap, vinegar and water mix. Repeat the scrubbing action with a soft cloth and wipe with a dry cloth.

You might need to add more warm water to dissolve the borax.

Finish by wiping the cabinets down with a small amount of orange oil, lemon oil or even mineral oil.

Just a light sheen makes all the difference.
