A soft cotton cloth dampened (completely wrung out) with warm water is usually sufficient for cleaning cabinet surfaces. If a more thorough cleaning is required, you can use a solution of mild hand/dish washing liquid mixed with warm water. After cleaning with the solution, wipe all surfaces with a clean dampened (completely wrung out) cloth. Immediately following this step; you must wipe all surfaces with another clean and Dry cloth to remove any excess moisture.
Extra care is required when cleaning glass doors. Spray an ammonia-free glass cleaner on a clean, soft, lint-free cloth or paper towel and then wipe glass. Do not spray the cleaner directly onto the glass as it could drip and seep behind the window dividers causing damage. Following this; wipe all surfaces with a clean and Dry cloth removing any excess moisture.
Clean all spills and splatters immediately with the appropriate cleaning solution.
Prolonged exposure to liquid spills or oil/grease splatters can cause permanent discoloration or damage to your cabinet's finish.
Do not clean cabinet finishes with sponges or dishcloths. They may contain particles that could scratch your cabinets. These items may also contain food or oil residue or perhaps even remnants of previously used harsh cleaning solutions.
Do not drape or hang damp clothes or dish towels over cabinet doors. This moisture can and will cause permanent damage such as “peeling” and “discoloration” to your cabinet's finish.
Some household polishes may be used but only on a sparingly basis. Waxing or polishing is not required nor is it recommended. Over a period of time some waxing or polishing compounds may build up on the surface of your cabinets and cause a haze-like, streaky or yellowing appearance. This build-up may be very difficult to remove.
Exposure to direct sunlight tends to darken the color of natural wood products. Sunlight can also cause painted wood surfaces to fade. *If deemed necessary; draperies or blinds should be considered to shield cabinets from direct sunlight.
