  • If they are painted and not sealed you will have a hard time. I like lysol kitchen anti-bacterial. Also, I hate the smell of bleach and have white countertops and I make a scrub out of baking soda and water. It works really well :)

  • Magic eraser.
    Is it grease or what on the cupboards.
    If they are wood fronts, I use citrus oil furniture cleaner.

  • I agree with the magic eraser.

    Hopefully they were painted with paint that is meant to be washed since its in the Kitchen. Whatever you choose pick a spot that you can spot clean that can be hidden/not noticed to make sure it doesn't dull or ruin paint.

  • Don't use the magic eraser without testing it first - it will take off paint and then you will have to repaint your cabinets. To clean them gently and leave your kitchen smelling great get some fabuloso at walmart, it's inexpensive and works really well.

  • Magic eraser!! The place I lived in a year ago had white cupboard doors as well, and the ones on the bottom would get soooo dirty from my son (he was not even two yet) opening them and closing them all the time. I used a magic eraser and it took that dirt right off.
