Happy Fall, all!
I got a great question from one of my YouTube subscribers (love them). It pertains to cleaning wood kitchen cabinets. I thought it was pretty helpful and that others may be wondering the same thing, so here we go!
Here’s the question from my inbox:
Im doing Fall cleaning and i have to wash wooden cabinets, I was wondering would you use Murphy Oil Soap on it ? and what would be the best way to go about cleaning them ?
Hope you had a grate Thanksgiving !!!!

And here’s my reply!
Hi – sorry it’s taken me so long to reply.
If you are going to clean wood cabinets (I am assuming they are not painted), you can do so with a treatment of warm, soapy water and a soft sponge. Dry well so that no warping of the wood doors happens. If you want to have them shine nicely, you can use a touch of lemon oil on a rag and polish them afterward (if they are indeed wood). Keep in mind this can pose a challenge if you ever want to re-varnish them though! If they are laminated wood, no need to do anything. I think the less product, the better!
Have you done this, what has your experience been with cleaning wood cabinets?
