Kitchen Cabinets in 3 Easy Steps

Good Morning All!

Dreaded Monday, sad I know, but we are continuing the KITCHEN series with our next topic. CABINETS

Kitchen Cabinets fall prey to all sorts of grimy spills, food trails, and crumbs; and they are often forgot about all together! The only time most people even think to wipe down the cabinets is either after a massive spill or when moving out. These poor drawers and doors are neglected and covered in germs.

 I am here to say that cleaning them is a breeze and all you need is a few ingredients from your pantry and 15 minutes. This will be a green and easy clean!

First fill your sink with warm water, throw in there a splash of vinegar and all natural dish soap. The acid in the vinegar will help to break down and loosen the stuck on food and the degreasing power of dish soap will loosen away anything that is left. The next thing you need is a scrub brush (I got mine at the dollar store), and some good ‘ol fashion baking soda. The brush and baking soda are to make this process easy!

Most homes do not have cabinet faces that are completely flat. If you are one of the lucky ones, I envy you ;) For the rest of us, there are cracks and crevices that hold stuck on gunk. Now I know everyone just loves to pull out an old toothbrush and go to town on those crevices over an afternoon… NOT! The brush and baking soda are here for YOU! Let them do their job and take the work out of it.

Now this next part is easy. Just 3 steps and you are done. (1) Take your scrub brush and dip it in the warm soapy vinegar water. Brush this over all your cabinet surfaces. You do not need to scrub at this point. The goal is to wet the gunk and let the vinegar and soap start working its magic for 5 minutes. (2) After 5 minutes dip your scrub brush again in the water and sprinkle 1-2TBSP of baking soda directly onto the bristles (the side that will touch the cabinets). Now scrub your cabinets. You shouldn’t need a lot of elbow grease because of the abrasive power of the baking soda and scrub brush. (3) Wipe down your cabinets with a wet rag to get the baking soda and soap off!.

That wasn’t so bad was it? No chemicals, no fumes, you don’t even have to wear gloves if you don’t want to, because there were NO TOXINS involved.

Check out the before and after pictures I took with my last cabinet clean. This was in my own home, just after we moved in. These looked like they hadn’t been touched in years!
