Step 6

Gently clean your cabinets with the cleaning 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 clean damp cloth and lightly wipe them all, removing any suds or residue leftover from the cleaning solution.

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.
