  • if you figure it out please let me know LOL, I have to wash them down every night as part of my routine otherwise i will have fruit punch, dirt smudges, peanut butter, or whatever else is on little hands all over the kitchen.

  • it will be very hard to try and keep cabinets from getting greasy in the kitchen. mostly ( i think) it comes from frying food on the stove. if most of your food is baked or boiled you won't have any airborne grease to land on the cabinets. prevention i would think would be the easiest and immediate clean up when you do have a spill.
    and then just do a once a year clean up with hot soapy water with a good de-greaser on all of your cabinet fronts and tops.

  • I just clean up as things get on them like mentioned above.  I also use this on them regularly as well.  It's quick and easy and keeps them looking nice.

  • This is what we use for most cleaning (initially used as part of my daughter's 6th grade science fair project). It is cheap (my favorite) and non-toxic.
    1/4 cup white vinegar
    3/4 cup warm tap water
    1 tablespoon baking soda
    10 drops of tea tree oil (antibacterial, antifungal, etc.)
    2 drops oil of lavender essential oil (optional) (antiseptic and smells nice)
    For extra scrubbing, I make a paste with salt, baking soda and vinegar.

  • I use Dawn on a nylon scrubby. I've tried so many different things (both commercial and home made) and that works better than any thing else.

  • Warm water and soup dish detergent...and a brush. That should the trick

  • I wipe them down like once or twice a week. They're ugly white finish so i dont have choice. I use Spic and span or Mr. Clean
