The professional way to clean greasy kitchen cabinets

 Are you wondering what is the professional way to clean greasy kitchen cabinets?

The German Kitchen Center offers kitchen cabinets in many styles and materials. From our lacquer, natural wood, steel and glass materials we use for our kitchen cabinets, these materials tend to gather grease, dust and grime after a period of time. Many of our clients have been asking us how the professional in the cooking and cleaning industry keep their kitchen cabinet shiny and immaculately cleaned.

We all think that the highest quality kitchen cabinets are used for storing dishes, and not grease. Unfortunately, kitchen cabinets are prone to all sorts of grease, grime, and gunk from simply being in the kitchen. We asked experts from the professional cleaning services to high end restaurants what is the most effective and safest way to clean food grime, grease and stains from their kitchen cabinets.

We gathered the information, and these were the most popular results in dealing with kitchen grease:

Lather Up That Sponge!

All of our feedback stated that by using a safe and effective grease cutting dish detergent fund in stores was the most effective way to clean grease off their kitchen cabinets. Just adding a few drops of concentrated dish liquid, into a bowl of warm water and dipping a sponge and squeezing that continuously until the sponge foams, then wipe away any grease or grim that has gathered upon your kitchen cabinets. This is a sure way to clean away grease, food particles and grim on lacquer and natural wood grain kitchen cabinets.         

For some delicate or non-porous material like glass or steel, you should find an area not noticeable and test the sponge before doing a clean scrub. If the material does not stain or streak, start scrubbing back and forth with the soft side of the sponge until the soil is removed. Remember for cleaning natural kitchen cabinet made of wood, move the sponge with the grain. Since grease cutting dish detergent is made to gather and absorbs grease you can finish the rest or the surface the professional way.

For those stubborn grease stain that seem to have stuck on your kitchen cabinets, apply a few drops of the dish detergent directly to the soft side of the sponge and wipe the grease until that stain is removed.

When you are finished removing grease and other kitchen stains on your cabinets, you may need to wipe down the cabinets and remove any remaining grease and excess soap with a damp paper towel.  After this step, immediately dry the surfaces with a clean paper towel. This will prevent streaking and absorb any moisture on your cabinets. The last step is to marvel how easy, cost effective and clean your kitchen is without any harsh chemical’s odors lingering in the air.
