A Checklist For Deep Cleaning Your Cabinets

To improve the look and feel of your kitchen, it is important that your cabinets are organized and kept clean. A deep clean of your kitchen cabinets is recommended at least once a month to prolong their lifespan and keep them in top shape. You don't know where or how to begin? Here is a detailed checklist.

Deep Cleaning Your Kitchen Cabinets

Your countertops are likely to be cleaned daily. But, how often have you cleaned your kitchen cabinets in the past? Your kitchen cabinets can build up grime, grease, dirt, and more as quickly as your countertops. It is not only possible to see the gunk buildup over time but it could also lead to food-borne illnesses such as salmonella. Spruce warns that "bacteria such as salmonella can easily infect cabinet handles and knobs." Grime and other food particles don't belong in the areas where we keep the food we eat ...". We agree. The kitchen cabinets only need to get wiped down once a day. However, they still need to be cleaned up every once in a while.

Your Cabinet Cleaning Checklist


Keep bigger messes at bay by wiping up any grease or spills you make while cooking.

Each week:

- Wipe any food or grease that has been splashed onto your cabinets during cooking that day.

- Wash drawer faces

- Sanitize cabinet handles and knobs

Each month:

- Give your cabinets an interior clean. Use a vacuum to get rid of larger food particles or dirt. Next, wash the cabinet with warm water and soap.

- Clean the shelves of all food, pantry, and appliances.

Every two months:

- As soon as possible, move appliances and clean any cabinets you can reach. It will surprise you at how much food, dirt, and other debris can build up in the cabinets located next to your fridge and stove.

Best Cleaning Agents

While you may already have multipurpose cleaners in your arsenal, or at this time during COVID-19 the heavy-duty cleaners bleach, what do you use to clean your kitchen cabinets? Hardeners can cause damage to wood cabinets. The DIY Network recommends that you use a 50/50 mix of vinegar, warm water, and water to clean wood cabinets. Once the ingredients have been combined, mist your cabinets with the mixture and allow them to sit for up two minutes before wiping down with a microfiber fabric. For grease buildup, add a few drops of liquid dishwashing shampoo to cut through it.
