After cabinets have been installed, wipe down all exteriors and interiors with a damp cloth to remove dust, drying immediately with a dry cloth.
Remove oil, grease or general soil using a clean cloth dampened with a fresh solution of mild soap and water. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth, then dry thoroughly. It is important to wipe spills immediately. Avoid using harsh detergents, strong soap, abrasive cleaners or self-polishing waxes.
If your kitchen cabinetry includes doors with glass inserts, please follow these cleaning guidelines. Spray an ammonia-free glass cleaner on a clean, soft lint-free cloth or paper towel. Avoid spraying cleaner directly on the glass as overspray may cause damage to the wood finish.
Periodically use mild soap and warm water to clean door and drawer hardware. After cleaning, dry and buff hardware with a clean, soft cloth. Do not use brass and silver polishes. These polishes contain harsh chemicals that can damage the hardware’s surface.
