We’ve all been there. You reach for your cabinet to take out some plates, a glass, or something else, and your hand brushes across the surface of the cabinet. Immediately you stop dead in your tracks because all you feel is the sticky and disgusting buildup of grease. Of course, you start to wonder how it even got that way. You know you need to clean the surface. But how? Well, you're in luck: here are a few easy ways that can remove the grease and grime from your cabinets with ease.
Not only is vinegar great for pickling vegetables and sprinkling on fries, vinegar has many households uses as well. It is great for cutting through grease, which makes it an ideal product for cleaning the surface of your cabinets.
All you need to do is pour some onto a dry cloth and wipe down the cabinets. You can rinse the cloth in warm water when it gets too grimy. When you are finished wiping down the cabinets, dry the surface with a paper towel.
Dish soap will cut through the grease on your kitchen cabinets the same way it cuts through grease on your dinner dishes. Fill your sink with hot water (as hot as you can handle while wearing rubber gloves) and squirt in one or two tablespoons of dish soap. move a nylon scouring pad in a circular motion across the surface of the cabinets.
*Be sure to use enough pressure to attack the grease but not so much that it damages the finish of the cabinets. Rinse the surface with cool water and dry with a paper towel.
Although it may seem counter-intuitive, vegetable oil is a great product for removing grease from your kitchen cabinets. Vegetable oil has the ability to soften and cut through the grimy grease that can coat your cabinets.
For optimal results, mix one part vegetable oil with two parts baking soda to create a paste. Rub the paste into the surface of your cabinets with a damp cloth. The paste can also make the hinges shiny again, too. After treating your cabinets with the paste, wash them down with warm water and dish soap, rinse them off and then dry them with a paper towel.
The best way to get grease and grime off of your cabinets is to make sure it does not get there in the first place. Changing your range hood filters every three to six months can help keep the grease where it belongs, which is not splattered all over your kitchen.
When your cabinets are clean and free of grease and grime, they will look so good people may mistake them for new. Thankfully, keeping your cabinets free of grease is as easy as keeping a few common household products on-hand and replacing your range hood filter regularly.
