How to Maintain Wood Kitchen Cabinets


Wood cabinets that are properly cared for and maintained can add beauty to a kitchen for a long time. However, wood cabinets that are not cleaned and maintained can become an eyesore. Wood kitchen cabinets require regular maintenance to bring out their natural beauty. With the right cleaning supplies and a little time and effort, your wood cabinets can highlight your kitchen.

Things You'll Need

  • Dish soap
  • Towel
  • Wipe your wood kitchen cabinets down with a cloth or towel soaked in warm water and dish soap. Wipe the cabinets in the direction of the wood grain. Dab the wood cabinets with a dry cloth or towel after cleaning them with soap and water.

  • Turn on your kitchen fan while cooking on the stove or in the oven. The fan helps remove grease and dust that can damage the finish of wood cabinets.

  • Protect wood cabinets from direct sunlight by installing curtains or blinds on kitchen windows. The sun's rays can cause cabinet finishes to fade.
