  • I use water and vinegar (3 parts water, 1 part vinegar) in a spray bottle. Add 10-20 drops of orange essential oil and 1 Tbsp olive oil. Shake it up, spray and wipe. It works great for me and never leaves the wood looking dull.

  • I think my Mom uses Murphy's Oil soap. I have Laminate.

  • We put up CabinetPrints on the exterior of our cabinet doors - they're kind of like wallpaper, but no glue and they are removable and totally cute. I just use a damp sponge to clean them. At some point we will remodel our kitchen, but until then, the cabinetprints keep them clean underneath and are super easy to keep clean.
