Gently clean your cabinets with the cleaning solution, being sure to give extra attention to the area around the knobs, corners and edges.

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.
