Clean Sweep Day 2: Kitchen Countertops and Cabinets

February 4, 2013

Wiping down the counter tops:
We always remember to wipe down our counter tops, but rarely do we wipe down our cabinets and drawers. I have this one spot in my kitchen that I do most of my cooking/prep work and there are always random splatter spots that need to be wiped up. A hot rag soaked in some mild soapy water should more than do the trick on these.
One product I’ve used that I really enjoyed was Method All Purpose Cleaner (I like the orange one). It smells great but not overpowering. If you have a stubborn spot, just work on it for a little while reapplying the hot rag and a little elbow grease.
Be careful using cleaners, especially on real wood cabinets, because they can take the finish off of your cabinets and cause discoloration. If you want to go the extra mile, finish up with a furniture polish or orange oil cleaner to really make those cabinets shine!
