Gently clean your cabinets with the solution, being sure to give extra attention to the area around the knobs, corners, and edges. Once you have cleaned all of your cabinets, take a damp cloth and lightly wipe them all, removing any suds or residue leftover from the cleaning solution.

Tip

For extra dirty areas or smudges that aren't easily wiped away, use a magic eraser sponge to remove them. Just dampen the sponge and gently wipe the smudge or stain away.
