Hi, I'm Monica D. Higgins with I'm here in Van Nuys, California at Thomas Craven Wood Finishers. And today, I'm going to show you how to clean cedar cabinets with Murphy's soap. Cleaning your cabinets keeps them looking their best. To safely clean your wood cabinets you want to use Murphy's Oil soap. To be used on finished cabinets. That's cabinets that has a paint or a stain not raw cabinetry without a pain or a stain. What you're going to need is a duster, Murphy's Oil Soap, some water, a bucket, and a clean soft cloth. First thing you're going to do is take your duster an dust off the cabinet door just to make sure you get off any residue. And following the manufacturers instructions you're going to mix the Murphy's soap with the water. In this instance I mixed a quarter of a cup to half a gallon of water. I'm going to dip my rag in here, wring it out, and I'm going to gently wipe the cabinet in the direction of the grain. You don't want to soak the wood or make it overly wet. The great thing about Murphy's soap is that you don't need to rinse because it doesn't leave a dulling residue. It has oil in the soap which gives a nice sheen to the wood. I'm Monica D. Higgins with and I just showed you how to clean cedar cabinets with Murphy's soap.
