Easy to clean kitchen cabinets


Cabinets don’t always show their dirt, but believe me, it’s there! Once your cabinets are clean, you’ll see what a difference a little scrubbing can do. This simple recipe will cut grease and fingerprints and it offers a little aromatherapy to boot. Use it on your cabinet and drawer fronts and insides. This solution works with any finished cabinets—wood, laminate, or veneer. Make sure you squeeze any excess liquid from your cloth to keep unnecessary water off your cabinets.
