When it comes to cleaning our kitchen cabinets, we have 4 distinct methods for different types of cabinets.
American Style Cabinets
Stained natural wood grain cabinets (American Walnut, Espresso, Mahogany)
Keep your cabinets clean with regular dusting. Stained solid wood cabinets are more susceptible to damage from a harsh cleaner. For a severe stuck-on mess we recommend Magic brand cabinet cleaner. You can also try to wash with vinegar and hot water or a very mild detergent, and then rinse-&-dry quickly. Many years after your purchase you may want to try a polish product if you wish to bring a shine back to your old cabinets if necessary (not recommended for new cabinets). Touch-up Kits are available for minor scratches; please contact your vendor for details.
Poly-Urethane painted cabinets (White/Grey Shaker, Antique White)
Keep your cabinets clean with regular dusting. The painted coats on your cabinets should make it harder for any serious stains or stuck-on messes to damage your cabinets but you should still clean any spills right away. *Our Antique White cabinets have detailed glazing lines added to the doors to accentuate their detailed design. These lines are more susceptible to damage from cleaning products.* Touch-up Kits are available for minor scratches; please contact your vendor for details.
European Style Cabinets
Textured Melamine cabinets (Milan, Cocoa)
Keep your cabinets clean with regular dusting. If a serious spill causes a thick stuck-on mess on your textured melamine cabinets, you may need to wipe down your cabinets and doors more than one time to be sure that there is no food or grease residue in the tiny textured grooves of the panels. The textured Melamine is resistant to stains and discoloration, but if need be, we recommend Magic brand cabinet cleaner. Textured melamine finish is most susceptible to high heat and long hours of direct sunlight (not recommended for outdoor use).
High Gloss Cabinets
Keep your cabinets clean with regular dusting. A benefit of the High Gloss cabinets is their resistance to stains and discoloration from food and spills. However, it is still important to clean any messes right away. High gloss lacquer is more susceptible to scratches than stains.
